From WebMD: Multiple chemical sensitivity (MCS), also known as idiopathic environmental intolerances (IEI), is an unrecognized controversial diagnosis characterized by chronic symptoms attributed to exposure to low levels of commonly used chemicals. Symptoms are typically vague and non-specific.
Your doctor may call it “idiopathic environmental intolerance.”
The symptoms people report are wide-ranging. They include headache, fatigue, dizziness, nausea, congestion, itching, sneezing, sore throat, chest pain, changes in heart rhythm, breathing problems, muscle pain or stiffness, skin rash, diarrhea, bloating, gas, confusion, trouble concentrating, memory problems, and mood changes.
Possible triggers that set off people’s symptoms vary a lot, too. They include tobacco smoke, auto exhaust, perfume, insecticide, new carpet, chlorine, and more.
Those feelings are real. But they can happen for many reasons. The question is whether MCS is an illness. Health experts don’t agree on that.
The American Medical Association doesn’t consider multiple chemical sensitivity to be an illness.
Some doctors suggest it’s an immune response similar to allergies. Others say that the symptoms stem from an extreme sensitivity to certain smells. It’s possible that conditions such as depression and anxiety play a role, too.
Diagnosis and Treatment
There are no reliable tests to diagnose multiple chemical sensitivity, and there are no effective or proven treatments.
People often find solutions on their own.
Master Odor Removal and our independent service professions use a variety of Professional Grade Odor Removal chemicals and processes and we are always eager to help, now with a caveat.
ALL odor removal chemicals have a slight fragrance designed to vanish fast!
We service clients across the US and never had a complaint regarding the tracer or fragrance not going away fast.
We are NOT MCS specialists, nor ever have claimed to be and always have our clients smell and approve the chemicals used 1st.
We do not use any cover-ups and never has a client, be it from the General Public, Real Estate Agents, or the many auto dealership / brands that we service across the country including: Bentley Motors, Ferrari, BMW, Mercedes, Audi, Lexus, Land Rover etc., ever had an issue or complaint.
Our main reference point is from our combined experiences from years of all types of odor services.

Judy Freed 3 reviews ***** 2 years ago-I needed help with significant odor issues in my elderly father’s apartment, particularly with the carpeting. I had specific concerns about treating the carpet with something that would be safe for my chemical sensitivities. Alex was incredibly helpful and responsive to all of my concerns. The treatment made an instantaneous difference!
Calla Delsignore ***** 2 months ago-Positive: Professionalism, Punctuality, Quality, Responsiveness, Value
Alex is the absolute best! He helped me get rid of an overbearing odor of vape, air freshener and cologne that the previous owner left behind in my recently purchased preowned BMW X1. This odor was so strong that you could smell it before you even opened the car door! The stench had soaked into the leather, seatbelts and headliner. I had a headache every time I drove it. I had tried everything that I could think of to get rid of the nauseating smell including enzyme cleaners, baking soda, coffee grounds, vinegar, and an ozone machine. Nothing touched it! I was about to give up when I found Master Odor Removal. Now my car smells breezy and neutral. I can finally enjoy my new ride! Thank you Alex! I am forever grateful!
All locations are small businesses and while we want to help serve our communities, if you have fragrance issues, MCS and are experiencing an odor issue we may decline the service as this is such a nebulas area.
