Have you ever walked into a business or home and automatically thought, “Wow! I smell feet.” I can almost, ALMOST guarantee you it is not your clothes, it is not you, it is not the person you are doing business with, or even the homeowner.
In most cases, it is that this individual’s building or home is suffering from Dirty Sock Syndrome. This does not mean that you have dirty laundry of some sort, though, if not contained will eventually transfer to your clothing and other surroundings. Dirty Sock Syndrome is a case where the HVAC system coils and other components have accumulated mold and other fungus due to microbes being in constant moisture from your HVAC’s condensation.
Because our sense of smell is one of the biggest factors in our sense of comfort, Dirty Sock Syndrome (DSS) can be devastating to a family’s home, or place of business. Would you agree that “Home Sweet Home” does not exist if you too have “Dirty Sock Syndrome”? Home is where we go for comfort, where you raise your children, where you go to rest your head after a long days’ work. Not only will DSS cause you to become aggravated, it could also cause irritation to your nose, eyes, and throat.
If your business attracts Dirty Sock Syndrome (Especially where dealing with the public), it’s a given that inflow will drastically decrease until’ the smell is extinct.
The tricky thing to keep in mind is that a lot of products on the market do not work to eliminate the odor, but instead work as a temporary cover up. So, purchasing the wrong product could ultimately result in spending large amounts of unnecessary money.
The reasons above are why CRT developed an easy to follow, step-by-step, kit to end Dirty Sock Syndrome. CRT’s “Dirty Sox Kit” eliminates the odor by starting at the source of the problem – Ridding the unit of the already settled microbes. After cleaning any remaining debris from the coils with the provided coil cleaner, complete sanitation of the unit. Lastly, apply the coil coating to protect it from bacteria between cleanings.
With only a once a year application! CRT’s Dirty Sox Kit “nose” best!
