There are many harmful chemicals in indoor air that can cause people to experience symptoms of chemical sensitivity. Some people feel light-headed and nauseous when they inhale these chemicals from the air. Chemicals are present in the indoor air of residences and businesses.

Chemicals that can cause these symptoms if breathed in include ammonia, formaldehyde, mold toxins, and tobacco smoke. Many people can experience sensitivity to these chemicals when they are exposed to them in an enclosed area. There are also many people who suffer from Multiple Chemical Sensitivity (MCS). The sufferers of this condition are very sensitive to chemicals. Those with MCS often feel symptoms of these chemicals even if exposed for only a short period of time or exposed to only a small amount of the chemical.

The best way to keep indoor air free of chemicals is with a home air purifier. The AllerAir 4000 Vocarb air purifier is able to filter chemicals from indoor air. The unit was found to be a perfect fit for the Clark family of Park Falls, Wisconsin. They had just bought a beautiful and newly-constructed home and were excited to move into the home. Unfortunately, upon move-in, they noticed an unusual smell. They learned that the smell was a result of the presence of formaldehyde in the home. Formaldehyde is generally used in the making of new homes and can remain in the air of a home after construction. The smell was not only unpleasant for the family, but it also made them experience uncomfortable symptoms if they spent much time in the house. The Clark family suffered from lightheadedness and headaches because of the chemical in their home. When the Clarks spent the first few days inside their home unpacking boxes, they knew they needed a solution to have cleaner air.

The family shopped around for home HEPA air purifiers the following day and found that the AllerAir was the perfect unit for their situation. They bought the air purifier and had it up and running as soon as they got home. The 4000 Vocarb was able to clear the whole room of the chemical, because it can handle and clean a room up to 1200 square feet in size. The home air purifier is equipped with effective HEPA filter technology and also has the extra ability to absorb and eliminate harmful chemicals that may cause chemical sensitivity symptoms. The air purifier is a small model, so it is able to sit in the room without being noticed or taking up too much space. The 4000 Vocarb home air purifier uses only 95 watts of power when placed on a high setting, so the Clark family is able to leave the unit running overnight. When the Clarks entered the living room in the morning to continue the daunting task of unpacking their possessions, they immediately noticed the air was fresh and cleaner smelling. The odor of the chemicals was no longer intrusive and they were able to work in the room non-stop without being bothered by the smell of chemicals.

After using the 4000 Vocarb air purifier, the Clarks have found that their new home no longer has the unpleasant chemical smell. Instead, it smells fresh and clean throughout their home, and they are able to comfortably enjoy their new surroundings. The family is very pleased with the quiet and effective performance that the Vocarb home air purifier provides on a daily basis in their home. By running the air purifier in the living room, living and breathing in their home is easier for the Clark family.
