Room Fresheners and air fresheners are always been used for masking unpleasant odor around you. The first type developed for uses in the home were aerosol, which when sprayed in the room creates a fine mist of fragrance to calm your senses. However, the aerosol based room fresheners become unpopular. Since the bad odor can have a negative effect on health and environment. Soon, the manufactures come out with high-tech versions of gel, liquid and heat-activated fragrances that can automatically mix into the environment and stay for longer hours.
Fragrance in Room Fresheners
Most air fresheners contain a variety of fragrances and chemicals. Fragrance is an umbrella term, which may include many chemicals mixed together, to mask the toxic products present in the room freshener. According to the Environmental Working Group, the fragrance is linked to allergies, asthma and other respirator concerns, hormone disruptions and other. This is definitely not the best, but the worst odor elimination method for any indoor.
Hazardous Chemicals in Room Fresheners
According to a report submitted by the Environmental Protection Agency, a store-bought air freshener contains chemicals like formaldehyde, petrochemical, p-dichlorobenzene and aerosol pollutants. A study from the university of California at Berkley confirmed the presence of ethylene-based glycol ethers and terpenes, which in dangerous and react with the ozone layer causing environmental problems.
Continuous exposure to these products can risk health and environment since room fresheners contain Volatile Organic Compounds that easily changes into a gaseous state at moderate room temperature. This compound can easily enter into the respiratory channel causing eye, nose and throat irritation, headache, loss of coordination, nausea. Some organic compounds can even cause cancer. The room air freshener is not only the sources for VOC at the home, but you can also come in contact through paints, wood preservatives, cleansers, disinfectants, pesticide and much more.
