Formaldehyde Odor Problems
Formaldehyde, a colorless, pungent-smelling gas, is in widespread industrial use. Furthermore, it is found in a wide variety of products e.g. adhesives, carpets, curtains, cosmetics, dyes, embalming chemicals, explosives, fertilizers, filters, furniture, fiberboard, fuels, intermediate chemicals, insulation, upholstery, laminates, leather, lubricants, paints, papers, plastics, pharmaceuticals, rubber, surface coatings, photographic products, urethane resins, water softening chemicals, cigarette smoke, poorly vented gas appliances, etc. Formaldehyde can be released from many of these products because it vaporizes at room temperature.
Unfortunately, most ventilation systems only recirculate room air and remove large particulate matter such as dirt, dust, and lint. Noxious formaldehyde odors are left free to recirculate in the air you breathe. Over time, they could increase in concentration and result in serious indoor air pollution problems e.g. sick building syndrome. Medical problems that have been associated with formaldehyde exposure include watery eyes, burning sensations in the eyes and throat, nausea, and difficulty in breathing. High concentrations may trigger asthma attacks in people with asthma. There is evidence that some people can develop chemical sensitivity after exposure to formaldehyde. Furthermore, formaldehyde is also known to pose a carcinogenic and mutagenic risk to humans. The health and odor problems associated with formaldehyde could lead to complaints from customers as well as employees and OSHA fines.
The Smelleze® Formaldehyde Absorbent Granules was specially developed to adsorb, neutralize, and encapsulate formaldehyde odors on contact. Smelleze® will truly cleanse the air of noxious formaldehyde odors, complement existing ventilation systems, and create a safer cleaner environment.
It's No Cover-up
The Smelleze® Formaldehyde Absorbent Granules are a natural deodorizer that can be used to eliminate noxious and unpleasant formaldehyde odors instead of merely masking them with perfumes. Smelleze® is negatively charged whereas formaldehyde odors ride on positively charged particles. As a result, Smelleze® draws in formaldehyde odors like a strong magnet. Thereafter, it traps, neutralizes, and encapsulates the odors without smelly cover-ups. The molecular structure of Smelleze® is made up of a lattice structure arranged to form a honeycomb framework of billions of interconnecting channels. This gives Smelleze® an enormous surface area that is larger than several football fields. The latter enables Smelleze® to adsorb phenomenal amounts of formaldehyde odors.
The Smelleze® Formaldehyde Absorbent Granules are non-toxic, safe, non-hazardous, natural, non-scented, non-flammable, and non-caustic. It is an ideal environmentally friendly solution for eliminating formaldehyde odors without adding pollutants to the air employees breathe and improving indoor air quality. Smelleze® does not contain chemical additives and is especially beneficial for those suffering from chemical sensitivity.
Smelleze® can be effectively used by all types of industrial, commercial, medical, and agricultural facilities to eliminate formaldehyde odors and spills. Typical applications include:
- Anatomy Labs
- Autopsy Rooms
- Chemical Plants
- Chemical Storage Areas
- Formaldehyde Spills
- Funeral Homes
- Health Clubs
- Manufacturing Facilities
- Medical Offices
- Nursing Homes
- Safety Cabinets
- Shipping Companies
- Pathology Labs
- Any Other Area With Formaldehyde Odor Problems
For a breath of fresh air, simply sprinkle Smelleze® granules generously on spill, allow to react, clean, and smell the difference. This product can also be placed in an open top container close to formaldehyde odors to adsorb them. Use at least 4 pounds for every 400 square feet. This product will function most efficiently in an enclosed area with good air circulation. For extra effectiveness, use this product in conjunction with the Smelleze® Formaldehyde Absorbent Pouch.
The unused Smelleze® Formaldehyde Absorbent Granules are non-hazardous and environmentally safe. However, this may change if it is exposed to hazardous or toxic substances. Used Smelleze® should be disposed according to all relevant local, state, and federal regulations.
Formaldehyde can cause Cancer
Formaldehyde, a colorless, pungent smelling gas, is in widespread use in products such as particle board, insulation, plywood, laminates, cosmetics, dyes, smoke, fertilizers, fiberboard, filters, leathers, paper, plastic, rubber, textiles, etc. and can be emitted from them because it vaporizes at room temperature. In addition, formaldehyde is used in products such as embalming fluids, fuels, fungicides, adhesives and paints which can result in spills.
Medical problems associated with formaldehyde exposure include watery eyes, burning sensations in the eyes and throat, nausea, and difficulty in breathing. High concentrations may trigger asthma attacks. Some people can develop chemical sensitivity after exposure to formaldehyde. Formaldehyde is also a known to cause cancer.
For a breath of fresh air, simply sprinkle Smelleze® Formaldehyde Absorbent Granules on the spill and sweep up after the spill is absorbed. Smelleze® will contain dangerous formaldehyde spills and cleanse the air of odors, complement existing ventilation systems and create a safer environment.
Smelleze® is non-toxic, safe, natural, odorless, non-flammable and non-caustic. Smelleze® is an ideal environmentally friendly solution for eliminating dangerous formaldehyde spills and odors without adding pollutants to the air you breathe. It does not contain VOCs, harmful or ozone depleting chemicals and is especially beneficial for those suffering from allergies and chemical sensitivity. No fossil fuels are used in the production of Smelleze® odor control media.
Q & A
Questions & AnswersAsk a Question
I have new laminate flooring in my kitchen. They have high levels of formaldehyde. Will this product reduce or eliminate the problem?
It's not unusual for some amount of outgassing to occur from new laminate floors. The trapped vapors are released slowly over time causing odors and indoor air quality problems. You can restore clean air in your home by sprinkling Smelleze Natural Formaldehyde Smell Absorbing Granules on your floor to pull the aldehyde chemicals out before they are released into the air. Allow them to work for a day or more. Then simply sweep-up and repeat the treatment, if necessary, until all the chemical odors are removed.
