VOC Odors, VOC Gasses, Volatile Organic Compound Elimination, Chemical Smell Elimination. Use Odorox Hydroxyl Processor to Completely Eliminate
Many people struggle to understand how to get rid of VOC gases, but hydroxyl radicals have been proven to decompose VOCs in the Odorox machine itself as well as throughout the treatment space. This has been documented for more than 25 years. Hydroxyl radicals are able to decompose VOCs using a complex series of steps that results in the loss of carbon atoms, forming carbon dioxide. The maker of Odorox technology, describes it as being a cascading effect that allows future generations of oxidants to dissociate and decompose VOCs. This occurs because oxygen is introduced into the carbon chains, making it possible to eradicate VOC in your space. Many VOCs are emitted as a gas from liquids and solids, and can include multiple chemicals that may adversely affect your health. It is normal for there to be higher concentrations of VOCs inside rather than outside since they are emitted by thousands of products. Organic chemicals are often present in products like varnishes, wax, and paints, as well as products used for disinfecting, cleaning, and degreasing. Even fuel is
made of up organic chemicals, and they can be released while in use or in storage.
The EPA released a study that showed that around twelve common organic pollutants are found in up to five times higher concentration inside a home than outside, no matter where the home is located. This study showed that people using products that have these organic chemicals in them put themselves and others at risk of high pollutant levels, and the VOCs can remain in the air even when the activity is finished, making it important to understand how to stop VOC.
Where Do VOCs Come from?
There are many household products that can produce VOCs, so it’s important that you understand the risk that you undertake when you use them. Products such asaerosol sprays, wood preservatives, paint, solvents, paint trippers, air fresheners, moth repellents, fuel, and even dry-cleaned clothing and pesticides can all release VOCs into your home.
There are additional products to be careful of, including carbonless copy paper, building materials, office equipment, correction fluid, adhesives, permanent markers, and even glue.
How VOCs Can Affect Your Health
There are a lot of negative health effects from VOCs, including liver and kidney damage, headaches, and nausea. Other symptoms include discomfort in the throat and nose, skin reactions, dizziness, and fatigue.
There are some VOCs that have no known health effects, while others are highly toxic. The time spent exposed to VOCs as well as the number of VOCs that are in your environment will play a huge role in the health problems you may experience. Be on the lookout for the following symptoms:
Respiratory and eye irritation
VOCs in Homes
Homes generally have between two and five times more VOCs than are found outside. Certain activities, like stripping paint, can increase this to up to 1,000 times more VOCs.
Ways to Reduce Exposure:
Increase ventilation when using VOC-emitting products
Heed label precautions
Don’t store opened containers inside
Remove sources of VOCs
Reduce exposure by applying a sealant on exposed surfaces of furniture
Rely on integrated pest management techniques
Follow manufacturers’ directions
Allow fresh air into your home
Keep products out of reach of pets and children
Don’t mix products
Throw away excess product that won’t be used
Follow Instructions and Dispose of Excess Product Carefully
To reduce Volatile Organic Compounds' impact on indoor air quality, make sure that you follow the label instructions and rid your home of excess products in a safe matter. You may have to take the products to a toxic collection program, and not just throw it away in your household trash.
Buy Smaller Amounts
Try to only buy the amount of products containing VOCs that you are going to use.
Reduce Emission Exposure
Try to reduce your time spent around products that contain methylene, as it can cause cancer in animals and mimic symptoms of carbon monoxide exposure. These products include adhesive removers, spray paints, and paint strippers. Also reduce your exposure to benzene, which is a known human carcinogen and found in paint, fuel, and tobacco smoke.
Reduce Exposure to Perchloroethylene Emissions
Your dry cleaned clothes can emit perchloroethylene, which is known to cause cancer in animals. Don’t accept dry cleaned clothes that have a strong odor, and if you continue to have a problem with strong odors, find a new dry cleaner.
Benefits of Odorox Technology, Testimonials from our Customers
My youngest child has eczema. It had gotten so bad that he would itch himself bloody during the night. During a trip to the Gulf of Mexico he developed a skin staph infection because of the eczema. I brought him to the pediatrician, dermatologist, infectious disease specialist and a chiropractor. We tried acupuncture, numerous steroid creams, acidophilus, fish oil, Mona Vie and he was on an oral antibiotic because his skin was infected. He even asked me to tie his hands to his bed post so he could not scratch at night. I did not do this. I told him if there was a fire in the house he may not be able to get out.
One doctor implied that I was neglecting him because his skin was so awful. I was hurt and frustrated. We had been doctoring for three years! Then, I heard about the Odorox machine. I was willing to try anything! After about six weeks of the Odorox Oasis in my house, his eczema was under control! It has not cleared up completely but we only apply the steroid creams once a week now vs. TWICE DAILY!. We quit the acupuncture, Mona Via and the oral antibiotic! He no longer scratches at night. It has been a miracle for us. And if that is not enough, my older son has asthma. He has quit taking his daily Singulair and very seldom uses his albuterol inhaler. With all the past doctor appointments, prescriptions and my time away from work, the Odorox machine is saving me the money I spent on the machine!!
This is the most effective and profitable deodorization tool on the market. We?ve used ODOROX? systems on many different types of jobs and it works every time. The best part is being able to occupy the structure while it?s running. We now teach ODOROX? at our training facility
