What Are VOCs and Why Are They a Problem?VOCs are a wide class of chemical compounds that can become airborne at or near room temperatures. These compounds will vaporize under normal temperature and pressure conditions, allowing them to build up in the air. While many different types of chemicals qualify as VOCs, many of them are quite dangerous to human health, especially when they are breathed in. Of course, VOCs wouldn't be a significant problem if they weren't present in your home to begin with. Unfortunately, many home products and even building materials are treated with these chemicals as part of their manufacturing processes. Formaldehyde, for example, is used in a variety of resins and adhesives that are used to make products such as engineered wood and laminate countertops. The presence of such chemicals in the home is why many people choose to select a high-quality air purifier for VOC reduction.
What Are Some of Our Best Air Purifiers for VOCs and Formaldehyde?Fortunately, there are several great air purifiers that are meant specifically to deal with VOCs and formaldehyde in home air. Below are four of our top picks for this application:
- Airpura F600: Engineered specifically to target formaldehyde, but very effective against other VOCs as well
- Airpura G600: Chemical and VOC removal for those suffering from chemical sensitivities
- Amaircare 3000 VOC: 1,800 square foot coverage offering excellent VOC removal and HEPA filtration
- EnviroKlenz: Novel chemical and VOC filtration technology
Understanding What's In Kitchen OdorsOne of the interesting things about odors is the fact that they can be caused by a wide range of different airborne compounds. In the case of kitchen odors, we're mostly discussing compounds that have become airborne as a result of heating or burning during a cooking process. Because of this, a special type of filter is needed to remove odors from the air. A standard HEPA filter, which is used to remove particulates like pollen, dust and dander, won't be able to target the gases that make up odors. So, if you want to use an air purifier for kitchen odors, you'll need a unit that includes a carbon filter. Carbon filtration allows air purifiers to remove gases, thus reducing or eliminating odors.
Best Air Purifiers for Kitchen OdorsWhile there are many great air purifiers that feature carbon filtration, we've selected a few of the best options for this purpose. Following are a few of the units we most highly recommend for dealing with kitchen odors:
What Exactly Is New Car Smell?To understand how the new car smell can have a negative impact on your health, we first need to examine what it really is. To manufacture your car's interior parts, automakers have to use a wide variety of different chemicals, many of which remain in the finished parts. While there's nothing inherently wrong with treatment chemicals locked in manufactured parts, these chemicals end up becoming airborne through a process known as outgassing. In outgassing, the parts inside your car slowly release the chemicals stored within them. This process can be accelerated by heat, which is why new car smell is often most intense on hot summer days. Even under other circumstances, outgassing wouldn't be a huge problem. Because of how confined the space within a car is, however, VOCs produced by outgassing are allowed to build up in relatively high concentrations.
How Toxic Does New Car Smell Have the Potential to Be?This is still something of a disputed question among experts. On one hand, the chemicals produced by offgassing in cars include several known toxins, such as BFRs, chlorine and even lead. While there's no doubt that these chemicals can be harmful, there's still some dispute as to whether the concentrations and exposure times that result from normal driving are enough to cause serious health complications. One class of drivers who may want some added protection, though, are those who suffer from asthma or other respiratory conditions. While a healthy driver may not see any direct adverse effects from inhaling fumes outgassed by the interior of a car, the heightened sensitivity of people with existing respiratory conditions could take a relatively lower risk and turn it into a more severe one.
What Can You Do to Protect Yourself?If you're concerned about the effects of toxic outgassing in your car, there are a couple of things you can do about it. The first is simply to start your car and roll down your windows for a few minutes before you start driving. This will allow some of the VOCs that have built up in your car to escape, particularly on hot days. Keeping your windows down or at least cracked can also help you disperse gases as you drive. For even better protection, though, you can put a small air purifier in your car to remove gases and odors. For this application, we recommend the Amaircare Roomaid VOC, which will offer compact and portable protection from VOCs. For more information about the Roomaid's capacities as a car air purifier, check out our other blog post on this air purifier! Whether you choose to roll down your windows or use an air purifier for added protection, keep in mind that no solution will be immediate. You'll need to wait a few minutes for the levels of VOCs in your car start to go down in either event. Have questions about the Amaircare Roomaid VOC or any of our other air purifiers? We're here to help! Feel free to contact us with your questions for answers and personalized product recommendations.
Why Would You Need an Air Purifier in a Locker Room?There are two main reasons to use an air purifier in a locker room setting. The first of these is the fact that locker rooms are home to unpleasant odors that can make people less interested in coming to a gym. The second is the fact that bacteria, viruses and fungi are quite common in these environments. Removing these contaminants from the air can help your gym patrons stay healthy and ensure they can change and shower in a clean setting. Related to this last point is the fact that the right air purifier can help to keep chemicals from building up in the air. For purposes of cleanliness, many gyms use strong chemical cleaners in their locker rooms. While this is necessary to get rid of potentially harmful bacteria, the fumes from these cleaners can build up and have a negative impact on people who suffer from asthma or other respiratory illnesses.
What Kind of Air Purifier is Best?For maximum effectiveness, you need three types of filtration in a locker room air purifier. A HEPA filter will help to eliminate particulate matter like dust and pollen, while a carbon filter will remove unpleasant odors and chemical fumes. The final type of filtration you'll need is a UV germicidal lamp. Intense UV light renders bacteria, viruses and mold spores neutral, preventing them from causing illnesses. Some of our top air purifiers with all three of these features include:
- Field Controls TRIO (medical grade)
- Airpura UV600 (covers up to 2,000 square feet, great for larger locker rooms)
- AllerAir AirMedic Pro 6 Exec UV (three carbon filter options with up to 39 pounds of activated carbon available)
