Secret of Activated Charcoal and Activated Carbon for Odor Elimination and Removal

Photo - charcoal1
Innofresh Activated Charcoal Products is a leading supplier of U.S. manufactured activated charcoal odor absorbers for the consumer and commercial markets.  Since 1992, we have provided superior activated charcoal odor absorbers for home, work, dorm, pet areas and automobiles and outdoor recreation from musty odors in cabinets and closets to power outage problems in refrigerators and freezers.   Our activated charcoal with VAC technology provides effective odor removal and elimination even from the toughest odor causing environments including outgassing, dead rodent odors, diaper pails, musty basements, college dorm rooms and office break rooms.  


Here are some of the more frequently asked questions about Activated Charcoal:

Photo activated carbon 2What is Activated Charcoal?
Activated charcoal is a highly porous, natural material that attracts and removes organic chemicals and gas from the environment.  It is manufactured by burning various carbon materials, such as wood, coconut shells and other organic material in a specialized oxidation – oxygen free process that results in literally, millions of microscopic pores and cracks inside the carbon that provides an enormous amount of interior and exterior surface area in which odor molecules are attracted to and neutralized.

What is the difference between Activated Charcoal and Activated Carbon?
Actually, there is not any difference.  Both of these terms can be used interchangeably and are synonymous with each other.

What can Activated Charcoal remove?
Activated charcoal is used in many fields including water treatment and medical devices to eliminate various organic pollutants from the water and the air including some toxic chemicals including VOC’s such as benzene and some other oils.   At Innofresh, we use this amazing material to create superior carbon filters for elimination of household, pet and car odors including smoke, food, animal, musty and other unwanted odors.  For additional information about Innofresh Activated Charcoal, click on this link to our website page – What is Activated Charcoal?

Is there a difference between regular charcoal briquettes used for barbeque grills and activated charcoal for odor elimination?
The answer to this is a big “YES”.  And, even more importantly is the safety of not using ordinary barbeque charcoal for odor control.  Activated charcoal or activated carbon goes through an extensive process which significantly increases the microscopic pores that attract and eliminate odors.  To explain it further, not all activated charcoal is the same and this makes a difference in performance.  Our activated charcoal filters are made from high quality materials and undergo a porous binding process that eliminates black powder and small particles common to most activated charcoal.   
Safety – Another important distinction is that, in addition to not being “pure” or oxidized as activated charcoal, charcoal briquettes generally have other chemicals added to them to make them combust better for use in grills.   So, keep your charcoal briquettes for grilling and use activated charcoal specifically made for odor elimination for a safer, more effective way to eliminate odors.

Cleaning and Safety Tip: Charcoal Briquettes compared with Activated Charcoal for Odor Control

Activated Carbon

Regular Charcoal compared to Activated Charcoal for odor control….and, is it Safe?

Q & A Forum:
Here’s a question that we are often asked about how to get rid of various household odors. “Does activated charcoal (or activated carbon) really work better than regular charcoal briquettes used on the barbeque grill to absorb and eliminate odors?”

Activated Charcoal works much better but more importantly is the safety of not using ordinary barbeque charcoal.  Activated carbon or activated charcoal is actually special oxidized charcoal that has gone through a pretty extensive process which significantly increases the microscopic pores that attract and absorb odors.  Click here to learn more about activated charcoal at this link –   http://www.innofresh.com/activated-carbon/ To explain it even further, not all activated carbon is the same and this makes a significant difference in performance.   Our Innofresh and Fridge IT activated charcoal is made from the highest quality materials such as coconut shells compared with other products that use a lesser grade of materials.   This makes a difference in the end-product.

Safety – This is something very important. Another distinction is that, in addition to not being as “pure” or oxidized as activated carbon, charcoal briquettes generally have other chemicals added to them to bind and make them combust better for use in grills. This is another reason we do not recommend charcoal briquettes for eliminating odors to avoid cross contamination with chemicals.

Keep your charcoal briquettes for grilling and for a much more effective and safer way to eliminate odors, use activated carbon. Innofresh activated carbon with VAC technology utilizes a patented ventilated porous system to provide maximum odor absorption and elimination effectiveness.    This all adds up to superior odor control performance compared with other products.    For more information, please visit our web site at www.innofresh.com and learn more about our popular FRIDGE IT and Innofresh fragrance free activated carbon odor absorbers and how to use them effectively.

That Time Of The Year – How To Eliminate Dead Mouse and Rat Odors Behind Walls and Vents – Secret of Activated Charcoal

 It is that time of the year and a change in weather.  The faint scratching that you heard in the walls have gone quiet.  Instead, it has been replaced with the rather pungent, very “stinky” odor of decomposing rodents – mice or rats.   The amazing property of activated charcoal is in it’s ability to absorb (actually adsorb) a huge volume of odor in it’s millions of microscopic pores.  That’s why it’s often the preferred solution for eliminating the toughest of odors without the use of fragrances that just cover up odors.  100% fragrance free and allergen free.

So now you know the secret that the experts use.  Safely, Quickly and Effectively Eliminate Dead Rodent Odor that is hidden behind a wall or in a vent – without harmful chemicals or irritating fragrances that just cover up the odor.  BEST OF ALL – NOW ON SALE at www.innofresh.com

Another common problem with rodents this time of year is well, sorry, mouse poop.  Here’s a great article from Deadspin that addresses this problem – How Do I Clean Up All This Mouse Poop? Written by Jolie Kerr – a cleaning expert  

We know from experience.  You can smell it the minute you walk into a room or open a closet where the smell is coming from.  The odor from a dead, decomposing mouse or other small rodent is enough to drive you out of the house.   Before you take a hammer to the wall or search through the vents, there is an easier solution to reducing and even eliminating the strong odor from a dead mouse behind the wall or in a vent.   Dead mice and rats hidden behind walls, cabinets, vents and closets are among our top odor inquiries.   The good news is that we have helped many readers just like you.

There is a way to SAFELY eliminate the odor with natures best odor absorbing material – Activated Charcoal.   No chemicals or irritating fragrances that just mask the odor.  There are a number of products that claim to reduce the odor, but the best answer is to actually absorb the odor with carbon or charcoal.  Getting a spray bottle of odor reducer is not going to help when you can’t get to the dead rodent.   Placing activated charcoal odor eliminators in the area where the smell is the worst is your best choice.    Our popular FRIDGE IT Cube activated charcoal odor absorber is extremely effective in tackling the strong odor from a dead mouse.

Our customers often ask – “But, I thought that FRIDGE IT was for refrigerator, freezers and trash odors?”   That is certainly some of the uses for FRIDGE IT.  However, the special ventilated activated charcoal fliter that we use for FRIDGE IT is amazing in effectively absorbing and neutralizing a broad range of odors and has the absorption capacity to handle even the toughest of odors including dead mouse odor.   FRIDGE IT contains a powerful micro carbon filter that absorbs and neutralizes odors as they pass though millions of micro-pockets and pores in the activated charcoal.  The amazing property of activated charcoal is the enormous microscopic surface area that odors (gases) actually “adsorb” to, adhering to the surface of the activated charcoal.  Just placing a few of these FRIDGE IT filters in the area that you feel the dead mouse is likely located will help tremendously in absorbing the smell that is lingering in the air.   For best results, place these odor absorbers near the baseboards and in the general area near the wall.  Depending upon the size of ther room and difficulty of the odor, we typically recommend 3-6 odor absorbing filters placed nearby. 

If you have problems with mice in your home, we recommend first trying to trap the mice in the open with a mouse trap or other device so that it doesn’t just end up eating the poison bate and then die behind the wall.  However, despite best efforts to trap them, the reality is they often end of simply dead behind a wall and the smell is pretty darn bad.  So, again, before taking a hammer to the wall, discover the amazing power of activated charcoal for absorbing odors.   Not just any charcoal, but the ventilated activated charcoal of FRIDGE IT.

Lighter Side of Blood Supermoon – Vampires, Garlic and Activated Charcoal

Photo - Moon 2 SUPERMOON TONIGHT

The largest full moon of 2015, called “supermoon” will light up the sky this Sunday, September 27.  At approx. 8:00 AM EDT, the moon will arrive at “perigee” which is the point in its orbit bringing it closest to Earth.   The full moon can appear as much as 14% larger in the sky.  This total lunar eclipse will spawn a rare and dramatic “supermoon”.

Supermoons occur when the moon reaches its full phase at or near the satellite’s closest approach to Earth, and appears abnormally large and bright as a result. The Sept. 27 event is quite special; the last supermoon eclipse occurred in 1982, and the next won’t take place until 2033

ON THE LIGHTER SIDE….

So, what does this mean for all those concerned about werewolves and vampires?  There are lots of stories, myths and legends surrounding a full moon including stories of Vampires.  Vampires are very popular again in the movies and talked about more than ever.  So, here’s what you need to know.  If you believe that garlic keeps away vampires, you’ll have a cabinet or refrigerator full of these odoriferous cloves.   Right?  Perhaps this works and you won’t have Vampires.  But now, what do you do about the garlic odor and how did our ancestors keep the smell in control?  Charcoal, perhaps?

MORE ON THE LIGHTER SIDE….  History Behind Garlic and Vampires.

To a lot of folks out there, a full moon brings to mind lots of stories, myths and legends that surround a full moon including Vampires.    For years, cultures around the world considered garlic, not only as a food, but also garlic is said to hold medicinal properties among other uses.  As far as vampires, according to some traditions, various methods including garlic can be used to protect against vampires.   This originated back to Eastern Europe where vampires were believed to be afraid of garlic.   Perhaps this had something to do with the idea that garlic can be used to get rid of many insects and mosquito bites (and maybe vampire bites too).

More about Charcoal  –
So, if you are inclined to follow in the footsteps of legend, make sure you keep your refrigerator and cabinets odor free with activated charcoal.   FRIDGE IT activated charcoal odor absorbers are the perfect odor eliminator for maximum odor eliminating results.

Whether there is a full moon or not, if you love garlic, make sure you keep FRIDGE IT activated carbon odor absorbers in your home too.   The activated carbon absorbs, neutralizes and eliminates even the toughest odors.   FRIDGE IT doesn’t cover up odors with fragrances but eliminates the odors for good with natural activated charcoal in a long lasting, convenient filter that you can just hang or place near any odor.
