The popularity of indoor air freshening products has surged in recent years, thanks especially to innovations such as plug-in candles and odor-neutralizing spray. But are these easy fixes really getting to the heart of the problem?
"Air fresheners almost never 'freshen' the air," Eco Childs Play reports. "They just mask odors, either with synthetic fragrance or by interfering with your ability to smell by coating your nasal passages with an oil film or releasing a nerve-deadening agent. In rare cases, they will actually break down the offensive odor."
According to the news source, many air freshening products contain toxic chemicals that can trigger headaches, dizziness, coughing, asthma and other respiratory grievances.
A much more worthwhile and effective solution would be to install an air purifying system. FreshAirPro carries the leading brands on the market today, equipped to handle a full range of indoor air problems. The combined use of various filter cartridge designs in most of these trusted models effectively removes over 99 percent of all particulate matter from the air, and many machines use activated carbon to strip the air of harmful chemicals and gases.
