A face mask developed especially for people with MCS. It utilizes the EnviroKlenz patented earth mineral technology which has the ability to chemically dismantle a wide range of undesirable chemical compounds. The fibers of the mask can filter out many common particulates. Reduces exposures to fragrances, VOCs, pollen, dust, dander, odors, and more. It’s light weight, comfortable, reusable, and latex free. I have one here and the mask itself is odor-free.
Get help from HomeLab to reduce indoor air pollution in your home. When you sign up for this service (less than $10/month) they send you an air monitor that measures four key indicators of indoor air quality: particles, VOCs, carbon dioxide, and humidity. You also get a cell phone app that shows if your air quality is in a safe range or not using red-yellow-green buttons, and a real-time graph that shows ups and downs with numeric measurements. But best of all, the fee includes access to a team of certified building biologists who are there to guide you on your journey to clean air. And as you make improvements, you’ll see your indoor air quality improving on your graph. This is an amazing tool. I got one for my home. Even though I have a base-line reading in a “healthy” range, I do see occasional spikes that I didn’t know were happening. Now that I know they are there, I can investigate and improve them. If you are concerned about toxics in the air in your home, this service can give you peace of mind that everything is OK, or guide you to improve. 95% of the homes they test are out of the healthy range. Requires a cell phone and wifi read my comments about wi-fi.
The EnviroKlenz HVAC Filter is specifically designed to remove odors and chemical pollutants from air spaces in the home. It was inspired by the special needs of people with Multiple Chemical Sensitivities (MCS), who require a home environment as free from toxic chemicals as possible. This technology captures and destroys chemicals and odors for true elimination. A unique and advanced manufacturing process greatly enhances the beneficial neutralizing properties of the earth minerals and retain their natural safety characteristics. The earth minerals may include Magnesium Oxide (MgO), Zinc Oxide (ZnO), and Titanium Dioxide (TiO2). For a 10% discount on your entire purchase, enter coupon code “toxicfree10” at checkout.

The EnviroKlenz Mobile Unit is specifically designed to remove odors and chemical pollutants from air spaces in the home. It was inspired by the special needs of people with Multiple Chemical Sensitivities (MCS), who require a home environment as free from toxic chemicals as possible. The metal housing holds two filters: a HEPA filter to remove particles and a filter made from the EnvrioKlenz “core techniology,” made from safe, natural earth minerals that remove both natural odors and volatile toxic chemicals. This technology captures and destroys chemicals and odors for true elimination. A unique and advanced manufacturing process greatly enhances the beneficial neutralizing properties of the earth minerals and retain their natural safety characteristics. The earth minerals may include Magnesium Oxide (MgO), Zinc Oxide (ZnO), and Titanium Dioxide (TiO2). For a 10% discount on your entire purchase, enter coupon code “toxicfree10” at checkout.

This is the best home air purifier I have seen in thirty years. It uses an entirely different technology than all other air filters in the past to remove 99.99% of ALL types of air pollutants: gases, particulates, and microorganisms. It removes pollutants from indoor air so effectively that the health of the user can be improved. First, the O2 uses a combination of airflow and neutral charge to capture all types and all sizes of airborne pollution without limitation. This neutral charge pulls pollutants of all kinds to the unit, just like your television attracts dust when you turn it on. Once pollutants are captured in the system, they are entrenched in a water bath. Then they are literally digested by natural microbes and their enzymes and broken down into their elemental components. Pollution gone. It’s the only technology that can capture and destroy all three types of pollutants. Please use code D2010 at checkout to get $10 off the retail price.
A great selection of face masks developed and made by a woman with an adult onset lung disorder, to take control of her environment. Various masks have different purposes, including an organic cotton comfort mask that reduces exposure to particles like dust and pollen, a silk comfort mask also for particles, and a honeycomb activated carbon filter that reduces exposures to smog, smoke, ozone, diesel exhaust, fragrances, and particles (ideal for travel to strange polluted places…”effective for poor air quality infoors or on airplanes.”). And more! The website gives many reasons why YOU might want to use a face mask to protect your lungs and health.

Activated carbon felt and fabric for fume and odor control. These work to absorb chemical fumes quietly from places where you cannot take an air filter. Put a felt over a mattress, to block fumes from carpets…the list of odors and applications is very long. Especially good for cars and travel. Also a nontoxic photo-catalytic spray that can remove mothball odors from closets, smoke from walls, perfume odors. and more.
"The World's Largest Vacuum Cleaner Store — The Vacuum Cleaner Experts for Over 57 Years!" Since this store happened to be right across Tampa Bay from my house, I went there when I was looking for a vacuum cleaner. They have every kind of vacuum I could think of and helped me choose the best one for my needs. They are very friendly and knowledgeable about vacuums.
Captures and reduces particles as small as 1 micron, including mold spores, smoke, pet dander, pollen, cooking smoke, dust mite debris, and household fibers. MERV 10, Filter Effectiveness Rating 1000. Baking soda (optional) coating on fibers increases odor removal and gives more contact area for the dust to be captured by the filter.
A variety of photoelectric smoke detectors.
Home test kit for lead.
Has product certification programs which recommends products that improve indoor air. They currently have three programs: GREENGUARD Indoor Air Quality Certified® (for low emitting interior building materials, furnishings, and finish systems), GREENGUARD for Children & SchoolsSM (for low emitting interior building materials, furnishings, and finish systems used in educational (daycare and K-12) environments), and GREENGUARD for Building ConstructionSM (for newly constructed multifamily and commercial properties that follow best practice guidelines for preventing mold during the design, construction and ongoing operations). All GREENGUARD Certified Products have been tested for their chemical emissions performance according to specific emissions standards given on the website. A good place to check when you are looking for building and interior products.

Do-it-yourself test kits for asbestos, caron monoxide, lead, mold, radon, water quality, and more.
These tempered glass "crystals" are used instead of wood or gas logs as the heating component in natural gas or wood-burning fireplaces and outdoor fire pits. Burning these glass crystals gives the heat (as much as burning wood) and ambiance of a fire while dramatically reducing fine particulate air pollutants–no soot or ash or carbon toxins are released. The glass crystals are completely safe to handle and last a lifetime. They come in many colors, about half are made from recycled glass.
A 100% natural, nontoxic product that allows you to control mold (in basements, bathrooms, kitchens), prevent mold growth after flooding or water damage, and pretreat building materials to prevent mold growth. Contains no bleach, ammonia, acids or volatile organic compounds (VOCs), works by encapsulating and then physically surrounding the underlying mold, inhibiting its growth. Website has good links to mold control.
A list of over 150 high performance vacuum cleaners that have passed stringent testing which measures soil removal, dust containment, and carpet appearance retention. Certified vacuums include backpacks, canisters, central systems, and uprights. Individual models may or may not contain high-efficiency HEPA filters.
Lots of information in English and Spanish about indoor air quality. Detailed tip sheets tell about choosing and using furnace filters, mold control, testing your home for radon, carbon monoxide poisoning, controlling cockroaches, use and care of home humidifiers and dehumidifiers, reducing dust mite allergens, and more.
