Eliminating Tough Odors With Smart Technology

Eliminating Tough Odors With Smart Technology

When it comes to tackling bad odors in your home, conventional wisdom (or a trip to your local grocery store) offers little recourse. The most available options are usually heavily-scented sprays or sachets designed to simply cover up the offending odor. So instead of a kitchen that smells like baked fish, you now have a kitchen that smells like baked fish and lavender.

One of the greatest advantages of ActivePure Technology is the freedom it brings from chemicals and fragrances. ActivePure Technology  freshens the air inside your home by sending supercharged  molecules out into the environment to seek and rapidly destroy contaminants, fungi, mold, and odor-causing bacteria – even ones that try to hide in hard-to-reach cracks and crevasses. For individuals or families with sensitivities, this can be an ideal solution since introducing heavy fragrances or harsh chemicals into the home environment frequently exacerbates allergies, sensitivities and asthma.

Our ActivePure Technology is available in a variety of sizes: the smallest unit is perfect for use in hotels, stinky laundry rooms or around hampers or litterboxes; larger units like the FreshAir cover more square feet, as one unit can often deodorize an entire space, like a living room or bedroom. Additional features, like adjustable fan speeds and purifier settings, can create a customizable cleaning experience for every home.

Don’t rely on harmful chemicals found in aerosol sprays and potpourri to simply cover up odors — get to the root cause of the problem instead and knock it out with ActivePure Technology from Vollara!

Banish Stinky Odor With FreshAir!

Banish Stinky Odor With FreshAir!

If you’ve ever owned a Vollara FreshAir unit, then you know what kind of positive impact it can have on your home, your family and your overall wellness.

The FreshAir works by replicating a process that occurs in nature, which then destroys odors, eliminates smoke and reduces harmful contaminants ordinary cleaning can leave behind. So if you or someone in your family struggles with breathing difficulties, allergies or asthma, the FreshAir can be an invaluable asset to your home.

But consider this: there are a lot of great uses for your FreshAir unit that you may not have even thought about. One of the best ideas we’ve heard? Using the FreshAir to deodorize a stinky closet!

Does your daughter or son play sports, bringing home smelly, stained uniforms? Do you or your spouse keep that old pair of running shoes or hiking boots in your closet? What about hunting clothes? Did your recent trip to see Aunt Mary (who smokes) take a toll on your favorite coat?

Try this: use a FreshAir in your closet. Placing the unit inside of the offending closet and closing the door for a few hours will have an amazing effect on offensive odors. You’ll immediately notice a difference when you step back into that closet and take a deep breath. If it’s one item in particular (your kid’s basketball shoes, for example) you can place that item right in front of your FreshAir unit for even more odor removal.

From diaper pails to stinky pet beds to the kitchen the morning after you cooked halibut – the FreshAir works to destroy odors, not mask them with artificial scents and chemicals.

What are some of your favorite uses for your FreshAir unit?

 

Why the Air Quality Indoors is Important to Your Health

Why the Air Quality Indoors is Important to Your Health

 

air quality indoorsThere is a lot of concern over air pollution and greenhouse gasses in the environment, but it might be surprising to learn that the air quality indoors is often just as bad, and in many cases worse, than the air outdoors.  People, on average, spend the majority of their day indoors, so they are most likely going to inhale the pollutants that are present indoors.

Poor indoor air quality can be blamed partially on common pollutants entering buildings through air leaks in the structure. Indoor air pollutants can also come from sources commonly found indoors, like consumer products, gas appliances, building materials and furniture. The toxic emissions from many of these sources can have serious repercussions on your health.

Pollutants come in two main forms: particulate (particles) and gasses.  Particulate pollutants include things such as fine dust, dust mites, pet dander, mold spores, and pollen.  Gas pollutants include volatile organic compounds that come from many sources including cleaning solutions, carpets, building materials, and plastics.  Other common pollutants include tobacco smoke, radon, and fumes from fuel combustion (from furnaces, gas stoves, cars, etc.).

Poor indoor air quality can aggravate allergy symptoms, like runny nose and watery eyes, or it may lead to headaches, dry eyes, nasal congestion, nausea and fatigue.  All of these air pollutants may lead to serious health consequences over time.

The best way to protect against indoor air pollution is to prevent or minimize the release of indoor pollutants.  Indoor air pollutants can be reduced by following safety instructions when using chemical products; using appliances properly;  taking precautions when using building materials, carpets and fabrics that emit gasses; keeping the indoors free form dust, mold and mildew; and providing good ventilation.  Another way to reduce poor indoor air quality is by using an air purifier to help remove many of these contaminants from the air.  This will ensure that the air you are breathing is clean and free from harmful contaminants.

 

Worried about ‘Contagion’?

Worried about ‘Contagion’?

Contagion’ may soon be spreading more than the joy of entertainment at the box office. The premise of the movie seems to have brought reality a little too close to home for the actors and staff, including director Steven Soderbergh, screenwriter Scott Burns, and actor Matt Damon.

“The real-life education began with Burns’ intensive research for the script, which involved working with world health experts,” stated USA Today in their article titled ‘Contagion’ created a crew of germaphobes. “Actress Marion Cotillard was the most affected with her germ education. She concedes that she has always been careful pathogen-wise, bringing her own germ-killing spray to hotel rooms. But after long conversations with Soderbergh, she stepped up her game. Now Cotillard cleans every doorknob in the hotel room and the TV remote control.” The article then goes on to say “Her germ mind-set only got worse when she watched Contagion with studio executives,” a statement that seems to underscore the potential effect the movie may have on actual audiences.

Hollywood’s latest fright aside, being concerned about the issue of airborne and surface contaminants is nothing new at Vollara. For years, we have been involved in researching and developing air and surface environmental technologies designed to help combat and control certain common household contaminants. The potential effectiveness of our active technology on surfaces has been tested for us by Dr. James Marsden at Kansas State University, and separately for airborne particulate at the University of Cincinnati.

And while the work we’re doing at Vollara may not have the dramatic flare of a box office hit or the drama of trying to cure a worldwide contagion, we feel it’s very important for average people to have a healthy living space, without unnecessary chemicals or being afraid of the doorknob.

So if you own an active air purifier from Vollara, enjoy ‘Contagion’ knowing you have the power of active, Certified Space technology working for you while you’re out, and after you get back.
