Multiple Chemical Sensitivities

Are You Chemically Sensitive to a Variety of Everyday Chemicals?

Multiple Chemical Sensitivity (MCS) is a socially debilitating disorder that leaves an individual with extreme sensitivities to everyday chemicals that they come across within the environment. It is nearly impossible to avoid the many different chemicals that afflict reactions within an individual with MCS. Paint fumes, building materials, aerosol sprays, hair products, perfumes, and air fresheners are all items that we use or come into contact with daily that can make an MCS individuals sensitivities trigger. No matter where they go, a person suffering from MCS will be faced with some potential source of irritation and a possible outbreak of symptoms triggered by their sensitivities.

Creating chemical-free, safe places for those suffering from MCS such as their home or office is critical to shielding the health of these sensitive individuals.

What are the Symptoms & Treatments of MCS

The potential symptoms that someone with MCS may face includes itchy and watery eyes, sore throat, dizziness, nausea, and even fatigue. When a chemical is present within the environment it will elicit this string of symptoms for an MCS sufferer and can last for an unknown period of time.

The vital component to minimizing reactions and symptoms of MCS is to create a safe haven inside the environment in which you spend the most time, your home. Creating a safe haven inside your home requires the removal of any and all traces of chemicals in your home environment, particularly within the indoor air of this environment.

Can an Air Purifier Help with MCS

Air purifiers were specifically designed to remove contaminants from within the air including allergens, chemicals, and VOCs. These contaminants are often times a contributing factor to MCS symptoms or flares and need to be addressed and/or removed from the indoor air of the environment. Therefore, utilizing an air purifier inside your home can help to reduce the exposure to chemicals and minimize MCS triggers.

Choosing the Right Air Purifier for MCS

Selecting the right air purifier for your needs can be a very difficult task, especially for those who battle with MCS. There are many different options available when looking for an air purifier, with a variety of brands and technology used to operate these air purification devices.

To help make the selection process easier for those with MCS, there are several different criteria to be on the lookout for before purchasing an air purifier.

Plastic Free

Did you know that plastic is loaded with toxic chemicals that can harm your health? Plastic can also dramatically affect someone suffering from MCS as it contains a high number of chemicals in its composition. Many air purifiers on the market today, unfortunately, use plastic materials to construct their air purification devices – which can in turn limit the options available for MCS sufferers. However, there are air purifier options specifically available to MCS individuals but be sure to check the exact materials used in the system before you purchase.

Powder Coated Paint

Many paints and finishes used during the manufacturing process can contain numerous amounts of chemicals and VOCs that will become introduced into your home when the item is added to the environment. Air purifiers are no different. Air purification companies utilize both hazardous paints and finishes to their purifiers that will lead to the potential off-gassing of these chemicals when it enters into your home. That is why it is important to be aware of what exactly is used during the manufacturing process and what type of paints/finishes are used before you select an air purifier. If possible, look for an air purifier that uses safe materials and paints such as powder coated paint, which does not use or contain harsh chemicals that can become released into your home.

Chemical & VOC Elimination Capabilities

Many air purifiers utilize the same few technologies – carbon, ozone, and ionizers, with carbon being the most popular among the options for its ability to remove chemicals from the environment. Although carbon is effective against chemicals and capturing them from the environment, there is a scary potential for the chemicals that were captured by the carbon filter to become re-released back into the area overtime as the filter fills up. This can be problematic for those people who suffer from MCS that cannot tolerate the presence of chemicals within their personal environment. Therefore, finding a technology that actually has the capability to capture and break-down the chemicals completely, alleviating any fears of chemicals potentially re-entering the environment is important when searching for an air purifier for MCS.
