What's one of the most overlooked keys to total home comfort? Ask your nose.
Does your home smell like a dirty sock? Don’t laugh! There’s a phenomenon known as “dirty sock syndrome” where your central heating and cooling system circulates air throughout your home that actually smells like a dirty sock. This is the result of fungus, mold and mildew growing inside of your heating and cooling equipment. Considering that people spend 90% of their time indoors, dirty sock syndrome is not something you want to experience.
If you have been fortunate enough to evade dirty sock syndrome, you have likely fallen victim to other odor-causing sources in your home. From Fido’s pet bed to Felix’s litter box, pets are among the most common sources of unpleasant indoor odors. Or perhaps you have a child that plays organized sports? If you’ve never smelled a hockey player’s gear bag, consider yourself fortunate.
Activities performed inside your home are also common odor sources. The reason people don’t like to cook fish inside their homes is because it smells like fish—two days after they cooked it. Smoking inside the home? Enough said.
Odors are more than just a nuisance. They are often indicative of larger, health-threatening issues inside your home’s air. Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) are chemicals that evaporate into potentially-harmful gases and are frequently identified by odor. Molds and mildew are associated with stale, musty odors and are known aggravators of allergies, asthma and other respiratory ailments.
No one likes odors in their home—consider the millions of dollars consumers spend annually on air fresheners, candles and other “masks.” But does it really make sense to add something to the air in an attempt to remove something from the air?
