 How to Improve Air Quality in Your HomeHere are some mind-blowing facts about the quality of your indoor air you probably hadn’t the slightest idea about.

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) in the USA ranks your IAQ as one of the top five risk factors for your health. Studies that have been conducted in the past have shown that the concentration of pollutants indoors is typically about 5 times greater than those outdoors. At its worst, these pollution levels went up to 100 times higher than their outdoor counterparts.

Your Furniture May be the Most Dangerous Culprit

If you have furniture that you bought before the year 2006, you’re probably at risk. Back then (and even today) furniture is coated with a special fireproof paint. This sometimes contains chemicals called PBDEs, which could release toxic chemical fumes into the air in small amounts over time. Some of these are known carcinogens. Advances in technology and chemistry have not, unfortunately, led to safer chemicals being introduced to the furniture industry. For more information check out our post on how to get rid of new furniture smell

Candles are One of the Bigger Culprits For IAQ

Candles are One of the Bigger Culprits For IAQEveryone loves burning a scented candle while going about their day or evening. Exercise caution when buying one, though. In addition to the wax they are made of, any scented candle contains benzene and toluene. These are both known to be cancer-causing chemicals or carcinogens. Burning a candle also releases hydrocarbons similar to the exhaust smoke of a vehicle into the air. A safe bet to maintain the air quality in your home is too shy away from scented candles and this includes those that contain essential oils for scents and artificial scents as well.

Your Printer Could Be Killing Your Fertility

Do you have a printer at home? For most people, the common printer type is an inkjet printer. All inkjet type printers contain chemicals that can be emitted into your indoor air, in addition, these very same chemicals and VOcs have been linked by the EPA to cause damage to the reproductive system due to long-term exposure. If you print your documents out regularly, you stand at risk of having your fertility impacted by these chemicals. One of the best things you could do to avoid this is to get yourself a laser printer or to simply get all your printing done at a store instead.

School Isn’t as Healthy as it Seems

Did you know that the IAQ at a school is far worse than it is in an office building? Schools are buildings designed to fit as many people into them as possible. It is a fact that there can be up to four times as many students as office workers per square unit of floor space. Children tend to breathe faster and deeper than adults. Studying in enclosed spaces for extended periods of time reduces the quality of the air so much that it is one of the main points of concern for the EPA and other government societies.

Your Asthma Takes a Big Hit with Poor Air Quality

Ever since asthma became an identified condition, and since the industrial revolution, people have been experiencing this respiratory condition in larger numbers every year. There is no discrimination with a disease like this. It can occur in adults and children of all nations, ethnicities, and social classes. It is, in every sense of the word, an epidemic. While it is rarely fatal, the only treatment is to reduce the onset of “attacks.” is to improve the indoor air quality in your home and reduce triggers that can lead to an asthma attack.If your home or office has poor IAQ, these attacks become way more frequent, especially in children.

Your Grandparents Take the Brunt of it

danger of vocs to elderlyThe elderly are among the most likely to contract one of the many serious effects of exposure to poor indoor air. This is because of the inordinate amounts of time they spend indoors when compared to people of other age groups. In fact, almost 90% of the day of a senior citizen is spent inside. Due to this, they are exposed to toxins indoors for longer periods of time and are more at risk of getting hurt by the aftereffects of this exposure.

It Isn’t Just Your Respiration That Takes a Hit

There are tons of pollutants and toxins out there that could be harmful to you. These include VOCs like formaldehyde and phthalates, PBDEs, pet hair, dander, and other material fluff. Any material particles that can cross into your bloodstream because of their size are considered a risk. You will typically see symptoms like dry eyes, headaches, a blocked nose, exhaustion, and even vomiting. You could also see even more severe conditions like asthma, infections, and possibly cancer as well.

Dangers of Air Fresheners to your indoor air

air freshener are a danger to your air qualityMost modern air fresheners contain chemicals known as phthalates. These are toxins that have been shown in numerous studies to cause developmental issues in young children and infants. They can also cause damage to your reproductive organs and worsen the symptoms of pre-existing respiratory conditions like asthma. In addition to this, some of the chemicals released by air fresheners in a home react with naturally occurring ozone in the air to form VOCs like formaldehyde which can be harmful to your health when you are exposed over long periods of time.

Chimneys and Fire Place to your Indoor Air

Oh, the weather outside is frightful, and the fire is so delightful…”. That indoor fireplace with the roaring log fire sure looks amazing, doesn’t it? Well, it could be harming you more than you know. In fact, you stand at risk of limited immune response to other illnesses and threats to your health if you burn wood fires indoors regularly. Even if you do have a fireplace with a well-regulated chimney, you are still at risk of exposure to some of the most common carcinogens out there. Remember that these are found in the soot as well as in the smoke, so be careful!

Dangers of a home with high VOCs

VOCs are organic compounds that are highly volatile in nature. This means that they could break down or react in a very toxic manner without warning. Commonly found in engineered wood such as in cabinets, home furnishings and laminated wood flooring, exposure to VOCs can lead to severe health problems. These include irritation of your eyes, nose and throat, headaches, dizziness, lowered reactions, nausea and vomiting, liver and kidney damage, damage to the central nervous system, and even cancer in some people.

VOCs exposure symptoms

Some of the early warning signs you can look for to determine whether or not you have been exposed to VOCs in your home include irritation of your eyes, discomfort or soreness in your nose and throat, headaches, skin reactions like hives, extreme nausea, exhaustion, mild dizziness, and other hand-eye coordination impairments.
Always remember that these chemicals have varied effects on different people. Some are severely affected by exposure and others see no side effects at all. Some external factors determine how severe if any, the effects of exposure will be. These factors include the level of exposure, the duration of exposure, and the concentration of the chemical in the air.

How can you improve indoor air quality?

There are products out there like air purifiers and air cleaners that actively destroy toxins in the air and drastically improve the IAQ of your home by removing VOCs and allergy triggers. Our EnviroKlenz air purifier utilizes a patented technology to offer a two-stage filtration process designed to mitigate chemical odors and removal of particulates such as dust and dander.

The EnviroKlenz specialty cartridge is designed to adsorb chemical odors and VOCs inside of the filter media where the chemical neutralization takes place. Once these chemistries make contact with the earth mineral technology they are destructively adsorbed and the chemistry of these harmful VOCs are broken down and destroyed.


The EnviroKlenz mobile air purifier is versatile enough to remove the toughest chemical odors and VOCs as well as remove common malodors problems such as pet odors and musty smells. If you think about it all the odors in your home have multiple chemistries whether they are synthetic or anaerobic and the EnviroKlenz mobile system was designed to address and remove these various forms of odors.The entire process is extremely safe and very effective indeed.
The problem with the majority of whole house air purifiers is that they either utilize a carbon-based technology which is limited to the classification of chemical odors that it can be removed or use an Ionizer technology which works through a process of oxidation which in turn releases toxins of their own into your environment. This means that even though you get rid of the toxic compound you wanted to at the start, you are left with a bigger problem – new chemicals in the air you have no idea how to get rid of. We find it counter-intuitive to use a chemical pairing agent to remove chemical odors from your home and that is why the Envirolenz technology does not use any toxic material, fragrance, or release anything harmful back into your environment.

  • An easily installed EnviroKlenz-Air Cartridge contains a proprietary blend of materials to neutralize odors, chemicals, gasses, Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs), and larger particulates.
  • Covers up to 850 square feet
  •  A multi-speed blower offers the quiet and efficient airflow. The low setting allows for near silent operation while still maintaining odor elimination. Medium to High speeds creates maximum air efficiency at noise levels still suitable for residential and commercial use.
  •  Affordable maintenance costs.
  • No tools are required for unit maintenance.

Our Recommended Solution…

The EnviroKlenz Mobile Air System is your solution to removing VOCs and chemical pollutants from your indoor environment. With the use of a hospital-grade HEPA filter and an effective earth mineral technology air cartridge, this two-stage filtration is perfect to place in your indoor space to mitigate potential hazards to your health.

Green cleaning products for the home

green cleaning productsThose with chemical sensitivity have learned to become crafty and resourceful when searching for safe and effective products that they can use in their home for cleaning and deodorizing but there are many consumers who are unsure fo what to look for. Consumers are becoming more educated and aware of the health risks associated with some of the toxic products and building materials that are in our homes and many have made the transition to Lifestyles of Health and Sustainability.

If you have decided to make the switch to better health by going fragrance-free, congratulations you have joined the club of nearly 20 million people who have made this lifestyle change! The scary truth is that most consumers do not understand what their favorite fragrances are comprised of and more than 95 percent of the chemicals in synthetic fragrances are derived from petrochemicals. Some of the named chemicals in fragrances can include but are not limited to benzene derivatives, aldehydes, phthalate which are also cited on the EPA’s hazardous waste list.
According to Scientific America “The average fragrance product tested contained 14 secret chemicals not listed on the label,” reports EWG, which analyzed the Campaign’s data. “Among them are chemicals associated with hormone disruption and allergic reactions, and many substances that have not been assessed for safety in personal care products.” EWG adds that some of the undisclosed ingredients are chemicals “with troubling hazardous properties or with a propensity to accumulate in human tissues.” Examples include diethyl phthalate, a chemical found in 97 percent of Americans and linked to sperm damage in human epidemiological studies, and musk ketone, which concentrates in human fat tissue and breast milk. EWG explains that ingredients not in a product’s “hidden fragrance mixture” must be listed on the label, so makers disclose some chemicals but “lump others together in the generic category of ‘fragrance’.”

What’s the difference between organic and natural?

organic verus naturalThe answer seems pretty simple if one has experience in shopping for safe and healthy products but let’s go into these two categories and better define them. When a product states that its ingredients are natural it doesn’t necessarily mean that the product is organic and vice versa. Unfortunately, natural does not mean organic and comes with no guarantees are far to often assumed to be foods that are minimally processed and free of hormones, antibiotics, and artificial flavors.

In the United States, however, neither the FDA nor the USDA has rules or regulations for products labeled “natural.” As a result, food manufacturers often place a “natural” label on foods containing heavily processed ingredients.

What is an organic product?

organic cleaning porductsThe term organic has a lot of influence and pulls in the food industry. simply stated an organic should contain no toxic synthetics or pesticides, toxic synthetic herbicides, or chemical NPK fertilizers are used in production, and no antibiotics or growth hormones are given to animals.

Organic producers and processors also are subject to rigorous announced – and unannounced – certification inspections by third-party inspectors to ensure that they are producing and processing organic products in a manner you and your family can trust.

The technology works by seeking out and coming int contact with the chemical pollutants in circulating air or on surfaces and once in contact attaching and reacting with the pollutants and/or destroys/neutralizing the pollutant at the source.

In addition, w do not dope our metal oxides with chemicals nor do we smash our materials into nanoparticles and beyond Magnesium Oxide (MgO),Zinc Oxide (ZnO), and Titanium Dioxide (TiO2) the only other active ingredients in the EnviroKlenz branded products are as follows

 

  • Water – in our liquid based products to aid dispersal and contact with the chemical odor that needs to be neutralized
  • Soda Ash – in our powder laundry enhancer for material handling and dispersal in the wash water

“My experience has been great, I purchased the EK everyday Odor Eliminator to treat the newly varnished floor of the apartment I was moving into, EnviroKlenz took care of the problem and I was able to move in without being negatively affected by the varnish.”

Rose M. –⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

“We had a small water leak in our basement and the odors made it into our living area. At first, it wasn’t too bad but over time the musty smells began to take over my belongings. I tried baking soda, vinegar, borax, and oxy clean and not one of these remedies had a positive effect on the odors. I purchased the EnviroKlenz source and laundry additive and was able to get the odors out of my clothing after just two cycles and also clean my furniture and solid surfaces!! This stuff is magic, my only advice is to follow the directions and call if you have any questions as their staff is such a pleasure to work with.”

“We recently had mold in our home and had the entire home remediated for the mold but for some reason, my favorite piece of furniture still reeked of mold. The contractor assured me there was no mold on the couch and that I can salvage it by using EnviroKlenz for the odors. I was shocked that something that is pretty inexpensive could remove the mold smell after one application. This couch held true sentimental value for me so it was important for me to keep it and thanks to EnviorKlenz I can.”

MCS awareness monthMultiple Chemical Sensitivity (MCS) is a condition where people experience symptoms of all kinds in response to toxic chemical exposures from everyday consumer products found in the home, office, and public environment.It is a phenomenon of the twentieth century, a result of the increase of consumer products made using toxic substances and materials.

Symptoms range from slight to disabling. At it’s most extreme, “universal reactors” respond continuously to everything in their environment, whether toxic or benign.

Because people with MCS react to toxic chemicals in their surrounding environment, they need understanding and cooperation from neighbors and others in their communities. They need neighbors to not use fabric softener or BBQ lighter fluid because these easily move through the neighborhood on a breeze. They need fellow parishioners to not wear perfume so they can attend church services.

Even though MCS has been known to exist for more than 50 years, most people still are not aware of this condition, what causes it, how it can be prevented, or how they can help those who live with MCS every day.

A Long Road to Recognition

raising awareness for MCSMCS was first reported in the mid-1950s by Dr. Theron Randolph, an allergist who practiced in Chicago. He began to identify patients with the “petrochemical problem,” who complained of becoming ill when exposed to car exhaust, smoke from factories, and various products that contain ingredients derived from gas, oil, or coal. Dr. Randolph advised these patients to avoid chemical exposures to see if their condition improved. If so, they were to reintroduce the offending substances one by one to see if the symptoms reappeared.

At that time, the marketplace was being flooded with products made from new materials derived from petroleum and other petrochemicals that had not been used before. Brand new televisions ran DuPont’s cheery commercials proclaiming, “better living through chemistry.” In the 1960s, Rachel Carson wrote Silent Spring, the first book to expose the health and environmental effects of pesticides, while Dustin Hoffman was encouraged to go into the field of plastics in the movie “The Graduate.”

While a growing number of patients were being diagnosed with MCS and finding relief by avoiding toxic chemicals in consumer products as best they could, the medical community now had to come to terms with a condition they had never seen before and did not know how to treat. No drug or surgery could exist to treat MCS. Government agencies had to recognize MCS as an illness before they could approve financial aid for disabled sufferers.

The energy crisis of the 1970s also contributed to MCS. Prior to this, buildings were “leaky,” allowing air to escape through cracks and other small openings. This was good for allowing toxic fumes to escape but made it difficult for buildings to hold heating and cooling. To save energy, buildings were “tightened” by filling all holes and cracks. Suddenly indoor concentrations of toxic chemicals emitting from consumer products and building skyrocketed, creating the new field of Indoor Air Quality (IAQ). And more MCS.

Natalie Golos coping with MCSThe first books about MCS weren’t written until the early 1980’s. Patient advocate Natalie Golos wrote the first book on how to live with MCS Coping With Your Allergies, and Debra Lynn Dadd wrote A Consumer Guide for the Chemically Sensitive, which identified the toxic chemicals those with MCS were reacting to, where they were found in consumer products, and how to find safe alternatives. Support groups began to form, as patients began to help each other with the difficulties of reacting to practically everything in the modern world.

Up until this time, there wasn’t much awareness of MCS in the general population. And then, in 1988, the EPA installed 27,000 square yards of synthetic wall-to-wall carpet in their headquarters in Washington DC. More than 200 employees became ill. Some reported exactly the same symptoms as those with MCS.
Now awareness of MCS became widespread. In the mid-1990s, two top television shows—Northern Exposure and LA Law—created characters with MCS.

Over the years, MCS has become recognized as a disabling condition by
• the Department of Housing and Development (HUD)

MCS is considered a valid condition for workman’s compensation claims.The governors of many states have signed proclamations recognizing MCS. MCS has been accepted as a disabling illness by Social Security, with a diagnostic code of DI 24515.064.But there is still a long way to go.

For example, there is no International Classification of Diseases (ICD) code in the USA for the health condition of environmental illness. MCS is explicitly identified in the ICD codes of several European and countries and actions are underway to recognize it in the ICD codes of all European countries.And still, there are many online articles that discredit the validity of MCS entirely.

MCS Awareness

how to continue to raise awareness for MCSThose with MCS are in a unique situation in that their well-being is very much influenced by the choices and actions of others.A person with MCS needs to live in an environment that does not contain toxic triggers that cause a reaction, which means for the most part they need to stay home in their protected space.At the very least, a person with MCS should be able to go out into the world and have others understand their needs and be willing to help. And so there needs to be education to build awareness.

May is MCS Awareness month when people with MCS all over the country make an effort to bring awareness of MCS to their own communities. The general public needs to know how they can help and accommodate those with MCS, But they also need to know that anyone can develop MCS from the exposures commonly found in American homes and offices.

And they need to know that MCS can be prevented. There is no need for any man, woman, or child of any age to develop MCS. All anyone needs to do is learn where the toxic exposures are in their lives and eliminate them.

We can end MCS entirely, by collectively creating environments in which we live, work, and play that are free from toxic exposures. And that would help everyone, everywhere.

What We Still Need to Improve

While MCS has become recognized over the years, there is still much that is misunderstood about the condition. First, regardless of the debates and disagreements in the medical community, there needs to be more awareness that MCS is a very real and disabling condition for many people.

In 2009, Professors Stanley Caress and Anne Steinemann published the results of their national prevalence study for MCS in The Journal of Environmental Health. In their national phone survey, 3.2 percent of the respondents said that they had been medically diagnosed with MCS. This result suggests that over ten million Americans are suffering from MCS. We’re not talking here about a small group of people in a minority. It’s like everyone in the entire state of North Carolina has MCS.

And there needs to be more awareness that the problem is not those who suffer from MCS, but rather the problem is the toxic environments so common in our modern world. Those with MCS are having a normal response to being poisoned with toxic chemicals. When those with MCS create living spaces that are free from toxic triggers, their reactions significantly lessen.

non-toxic living for MCSWhat those with MCS need most is for the world to be less toxic. They need others to become aware of the common exposures that trigger reactions, like perfume and cigarette smoke, and for others to be considerate.If we all were to create a world where those with MCS could walk into a store to buy groceries without having a reaction, or could ride in a car without having a reaction, work in an office without requiring special considerations, eat in a restaurant, go to a movie, do everything everyone else does. If we could create a world that would be safe for them, it would be safe for everyone else too. And medical costs would be practically nothing.

When MCS was first observed, Dr. Randolph was looking at how the emerging toxic chemicals in consumer products were affecting the immune system. Now we know that these same toxic chemicals that create MCS and trigger reactions are the same toxins that cause cancer, birth defects, endocrine disruption, and more. Every symptom and illness have now been associated with exposure to toxic chemicals. There needs to be more awareness of this. Toxic chemicals are not just causing MCS for ten million Americans. They are causing every illness for everyone.

As difficult as it can be to live with MCS, it may be our greatest blessing. For those with MCS have brought awareness to the presence of toxic chemicals in our world and then need to create safe products for our own health and the health of generations to come.

Hear What People Are Saying About Us…

“Before purchasing our EnviroKlenz air purifier, we were seriously considering leaving our dogs outside or making a room for them in our basement. No joking as soon as I pulled in my driveway the smell wet dog reached from inside of the home to outside.After a while, we became nose blind to it until our children came to visit and told us they will not come back if the home continued to smell like this. After 3 days of running two air purifiers from EnviroKlenz air began to smell fresh and clean and the best part is my babies “dogs” are still here in our home but their odor isn’t.”

C. Shaw –⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

“I suffer from asthma and my Naturopath recommended that I purchase an EnviroKlenz air purifier for my home. I was skeptical based on my experiences in the past but since nothing else was working I decided to go ahead and purchase one. After owning the unit for 3 months I can honestly give my feedback that it has helped me control my asthma and I can function during the day ( I work from home) and sleep during the night- Thank you, George, for all your help with this,again your customer service is absolutely phenomenal and your patience with me during the process is greatly appreciated.”

Noah. T- ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

“The EnviroKlenz Air purifier that I purchased arrived sooner than expected and I was pleasantly surprised about how well it was packaged too. Often air purifier comes in many pieces and I feel like I am putting together a puzzle but this system arrived ready to go and I had it up and running in less than 5 minutes. I noticed in a couple of hours how refreshed the air was!”

Are You Aware of MCS? Multiple Chemical Sensitivity (MCS) is a condition where people experience symptoms of all kinds in response to toxic chemical exposures from everyday consumer products found in the home, office, and public environment. Multiple Chemical Sensitivity (MCS) is a condition where people experience symptoms of all kinds in response to toxic chemical exposures from everyday consumer products found in the home, office, and public environment.It is a phenomenon of the twentieth century, a result of the increase of consumer products made using toxic substances and materials.
Symptoms range from slight to disabling. At it’s most extreme, “universal reactors” respond continuously to everything in their environment, whether toxic or benign.
Because people with MCS react to toxic chemicals in their surrounding environment, they need understanding and cooperation from neighbors and others in their communities. They need neighbors to not use fabric softener or BBQ lighter fluid because these easily move through the neighborhood on a breeze. They need fellow parishioners to not wear perfume so they can attend church services.
Even though MCS has been known to exist for more than 50 years, most people still are not aware of this condition, what causes it, how it can be prevented, or how they can help those who live with MCS every day.
A Long Road to Recognition
MCS was first reported in the mid-1950s by Dr. Theron Randolph, an allergist who practiced in Chicago. He began to identify patients with the “petrochemical problem,” who complained of becoming ill when exposed to car exhaust, smoke from factories, and various products that contain ingredients derived from gas, oil, or coal. Dr. Randolph advised these patients to avoid chemical exposures to see if their condition improved. If so, they were to reintroduce the offending substances one by one to see if the symptoms reappeared.
At that time, the marketplace was being flooded with products made from new materials derived from petroleum and other petrochemicals that had not been used before. Brand new televisions ran DuPont’s cheery commercials proclaiming, “better living through chemistry.” In the 1960s, Rachel Carson wrote Silent Spring, the first book to expose the health and environmental effects of pesticides, while Dustin Hoffman was encouraged to go into the field of plastics in the movie “The Graduate.”
While a growing number of patients were being diagnosed with MCS and finding relief by avoiding toxic chemicals in consumer products as best they could, the medical community now had to come to terms with a condition they had never seen before and did not know how to treat. No drug or surgery could exist to treat MCS. Government agencies had to recognize MCS as an illness before they could approve financial aid for disabled sufferers.
The energy crisis of the 1970s also contributed to MCS. Prior to this, buildings were “leaky,” allowing air to escape through cracks and other small openings. This was good for allowing toxic fumes to escape but made it difficult for buildings to hold heating and cooling. To save energy, buildings were “tightened” by filling all holes and cracks. Suddenly indoor concentrations of toxic chemicals emitting from consumer products and building skyrocketed, creating the new field of Indoor Air Quality (IAQ). And more MCS.
The first books about MCS weren’t written until the early 1980’s. Patient advocate Natalie Golos wrote the first book on how to live with MCS Coping With Your Allergies, and Debra Lynn Dadd wrote A Consumer Guide for the Chemically Sensitive, which identified the toxic chemicals those with MCS were reacting to, where they were found in consumer products, and how to find safe alternatives. Support groups began to form,]]>

She was trained at the University of Pennsylvania and Johns Hopkins and her broad expertise in preventive and lifestyle medicine, environmental health, yoga, and health coaching allow her to offer innovative wellness and education programs.

Dr. Weinberg touched upon several types of air pollutants that air purifiers need to be able to address to have a positive impact on personal environment spaces. Pollen and allergens, VOCs, cleaning chemicals, outside factors, furniture odors among others. Poor indoor air quality represents one of the top public health risks, according to the National Institute of Environmental Health Science. And since the average person spends ~ 90% of their time indoors, doing things to positively impact the air quality in your personal environments can provide significant lifestyle benefits.

Do indoor air purifiers really work?

Do indoor air purifiers really work?In our everyday lives we are bombarded with toxins and chemicals in the water we drink and bathe in, the food we eat and the air we breathe. When the body is overwhelmed with toxins, it cannot properly perform its functions, produce appropriate levels of hormones or digest our food.
Chemicals in common products which we use every day and in our environments are linked to rising rates of diseases including obesity, diabetes, thyroid diseases, behavioral problems, cancers and more.

Do you or your children suffer from allergies, autoimmune issues, sinus problems, metabolic imbalances, headaches, fatigue or other health issues? Many common and debilitating health issues can be linked to the quality of the air, water, and other substances inside of our homes.

Air purifiers and filtration systems can be an effective solution for removing a variety of pollutants from the air, but you need to research what is can do and does that match what you actually need. We are often asked how different technologies such as ionizers and carbon compare in their ability to address all these aspects of poor air quality with the EnviroKlenz Technology


Ionizer Air Purifier Dangers

are ionizer safe for use in a homeIonizer sends charged molecules into the air in your home. They interact with dust particles in the air due to an electric attraction. These ions either make the pollutants stick to walls or surfaces within the air space or capture them on an electrically-charged collection plate in the unit. So these devices can reduce some particulates, but a big drawback is they have no effect on gasses and odors, they are less effective than HEPA for particulates, and the area they can treat is often limited. Additionally, some ionizers have been known to produce ozone which may be more problematic for air quality than the particulate it may remove.

Carbon filtration

Activated carbon filters have been used for decades by people with MCS to remove volatile gasses.Activated carbon is so called because the carbon is “activated” by treatment with oxygen. This causes millions of pores to open up, giving a huge surface area to the carbon. Just one pound of activated carbon has up to 150 acres of surface area.It works by adsorption, a process by which pollutant gasses are attracted by and stick to the carbon.

carbon filter for odor removalCarbon has many holes, like a sponge, which trap the pollutants as they go by. But there are some problems with activated carbon.First of all, many people with MCS cannot tolerate the carbon itself. Carbon is often treated with chemical additives in an attempt to improve the efficiency, which can end up in the filtered air.And when all the pores in the carbon are full, it can dump air pollutants back into the air.Activated carbon does collect pollutants from the air in your home environment, but then they are stored within the carbon that then needs to be disposed of somewhere

Charged Media Filters For Particulate Removal

Charged media filters utilize “electrostatic” technology, which utilizes static electricity to attract and capture pollutants. Just like synthetic clothing can stick to your body when you put them on after taking them out of the dryer, electrostatic filters primarily attract micron or sub-micron particulate pollutants in the same way.Charged media filters utilize electrostatic energy by charging synthetic fibers during the manufacturing process.

Charged Media Filters for dust removalThe charge is retained during use, attracting airborne particles and giving them an electrostatic charge before trapping them within the fibers of a conventional filter.Charged media filters are extremely efficient at the beginning of use, but become less efficient as pollutants are collected. Charged media filters must be changed regularly to maintain efficiency.

Ozone Generator Effectiveness

Ozone generators remove chemicals and odors from indoor air by oxidation. Normal oxygen has two molecules of oxygen and ozone has three. When ozone comes in contact with a pollutant, it breaks apart and combines one molecule of oxygen with the pollutant, leaving the two molecules that make up pure oxygen.Many people with MCS have used ozone generators as air purifiers, but there are many warnings about the danger of breathing ozone.Ozone generators that are sold as air cleaners intentionally produce the gas ozone.

Are Ozone Generators safe to use?Often the vendors of ozone generators make statements and distribute material that leads the public to believe that these devices are always safe and effective in controlling indoor air pollution. For almost a century, health professionals have refuted these claims.Some vendors suggest that these devices have been approved by the federal government for use in occupied spaces. To the contrary, NO agency of the federal government has approved these devices for use in occupied spaces. Because of these claims, and because ozone can cause health problems at high concentrations.

“We are loving the new EnviroKlenz pad filter material! I have MCS and we live in a clean-built Airstream. We are using the pad material in the vents of our trailer. Our neighbors use strongly scented laundry detergent that drifts into our home and that had prevented us from being able to open our vents all summer, but now with the filter material in place we are able to have our vents open without any car exhaust, smells from laundry or the dairy farm next door getting through. It’s a game changer!”

“I was on the fence about buying an EnviroKlenz air unit because of the cost to my fixed budget and I have always had the notion that air purifiers were a big drag on the energy efficiency of my home but that is not the case. I keep my unit running for at least 15 hours per day and have not noticed any difference in my electric bill and more importantly than cost- I have the freshest air in my home that I have ever experienced.”

What Chemical Odors Can Trigger your Allergies

headaches from chemical expsoureChemicals enter the body in many different ways, food, drugs, skin exposure, but we are constantly breathing and inhaling whatever is in our immediate environment through the air. Any harmful chemical that enters the body has to be eliminated. This process is carried out by a range of biological pathways and organ systems in the body. Some believe that chemical sensitivity develops when these body functions cannot keep up with the demand or are functioning improperly.

Chemical sensitivity appears to develop in individuals who are prone to have the more traditional allergies or have asthma, eczema, or other related conditions and are very sensitive to a wide range of chemical stimuli. Even strong smells may cause respiratory problems for an individual when they are dealing with an environmental illness.

 About EnviroKlenz

The creation of EnviroKlenz® was inspired by our Customers with multiple chemical sensitivities and environmental illnesses. We have been honored to be able to work closely with them and learn from their experience and feedback. Through their recommendations, we were able to introduce a product line that is both effective and safe for everyone—especially those with illnesses triggered by environmental exposures.

We have worked vigorously and diligently to test our products with MCS influencers and support groups to provide “Personal Environmental Protection for Everyone.” We look forward to continuing our work with those affected by Multiple Chemical Sensitivities, to provide resources and products that will help overcome the challenges of living in our toxic world.

The EnviroKlenz program is a process that addresses odors and chemical contamination in air space, surfaces, and on contents through a variety of products to collectively create a clean air environment.

Each EnviroKlenz product is made from various combinations of our proprietary metal oxides powders. These earth mineral powders include our proprietary NanoActive® Magnesium Oxide (MgO), Zinc Oxide (ZnO), and Titanium Dioxide (TiO2) materials. We combine them to achieve the right balance of active components to suit the desired application.

The EnviroKlenz® Mobile Air System improves your personal environment air quality by removing chemical odors, fragrances, VOCs, particulates, and allergens all in one process. The patented EnviroKlenz technology neutralizes chemicals, pollutants, and fragrances while the high-efficiency particulate air (HEPA) filter removes harmful dust, particulate, allergens, pet dander, and more.

The process utilizes EnviroKlenz technology in the multistage filtration treatment to adsorb, neutralize, and eliminate chemical pollutants coming from a broad array of sources while removing airborne particles such as dust and miscellaneous debris to improve indoor air quality. The processor moves air through a polyester filter pad, an EnviroKlenz Air Cartridge, followed by HEPA filtration. What makes the total process unique is the use of the EnviroKlenz advanced chemical treatment technology for the control of odor-causing molecules and a broad array of hazardous indoor pollutants.

These unique and advanced manufacturing approaches greatly enhance the beneficial neutralizing properties of the earth minerals by turning them into an active form while retaining their inherent safety characteristics. When EnviroKlenz compounds come into contact with harmful chemicals and vapors, the earth minerals’ receptors capture the bad chemicals. The manufacturing techniques are designed to facilitate, enhance, and add to that process. EnviroKlenz’s earth minerals more efficiently capture and destroy the harmful chemical through a process we call “adsorptive neutralization.”

EnviroKlenz has increased surface area, unique morphology, high chemical reactivity, and high porosity, all contributing to the enhanced adsorption and neutralizing characteristics. EnviroKlenz has the ability to not only contain, but to also chemically break down a wide variety of chemical compounds. This technology has been tested and certified for a broad array of chemical pollution mitigation including the highly toxic chemical warfare agents. The technology has been tested by the following laboratories for chemical breakdown and neutralization applications:

  • Battelle Memorial Institute
  • Edgewood Chemical Biological Command
  • Coal Mines Technical Services
  • Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW)

The EnviroKlenz® Process Overview

The EnviroKlenz® Process is the scientifically and field proven choice for the safe, rapid, convenient, and cost-effective restoration of indoor spaces from toxic and irritating chemical air pollutants.

The EnviroKlenz core chemistry (the “Product”) irreversibly captures and neutralizes a broad range of indoor air pollutants. EnviroKlenz works by “adsorptive neutralization.” As EnviroKlenz comes in contact with chemical pollutants in circulating air or on surfaces of materials, the Product’s chemistry 1) irreversibly attaches to and reacts with the pollutants, and 2) destroys/neutralizes the pollutant. The irreversible result is a benign, environmentally safe byproduct and elimination of the unpleasant and potentially dangerous pollutants.

To be effective, the Product must:

(i) come into contact with the chemical pollutants in the air or on surface(s) within the enclosed residential, commercial, or mobile space,
(ii) be positioned to permit its contact at an air flow rate, contact time, treatment schedule, temperature, humidity, and/or concentration, as prescribed for the specific application, and (iii) be deployed in accordance with instructions detailed in the EnviroKlenz User Guide and/or instruction sheet, and other Product labeling.

EnviroKlenz has been tested and proven effective against a broad spectrum of hazardous chemicals and volatile organic chemicals (VOCs). When used as directed, EnviroKlenz will irreversibly adsorb and/or destroy the following chemical compounds:

Air Filtration Overview

Removal of hazardous pollutants from the air is an important application area with significant impact on human health and quality of life. Portable home air filters, personal protection respirators, and large-scale filtration systems installed in buildings are examples of air filtration products widely used to improve air quality and prevent exposure to harmful pollutants. Air filters removing chemical pollutants, gasses, or vapors, are frequently used in facilities using toxic chemicals or in buildings where such pollutants may be present.

The majority of air systems only focus on particle filtration. These devices may use a combination of traditional Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value (MERV) rated filters and high-efficiency particulate air (HEPA) filtration. Some devices add in solid sorbents, most commonly carbons, which capture air pollutants by means of physical absorption. Such filters have only limited removal capacities and often no destructive capabilities resulting in the odor chemical contaminants being released back into the environment which is a major drawback of traditional carbon-based filtration systems and the main factor limiting their wider applications effectiveness.

Hear What People Are Saying About Us…

“I have the filter in my home, office, and son’s school. One of the biggest difference I notice is that we all sleep better when the filters are running. Furthermore, we had the filters running in the office after it was painted and the carpets were changed, and that toxic smell was gone in a day and a half. The work was done Friday, and by Monday no one complained of headaches and very few people even commented that the smell of remodel was noticeable”
