Enjoy Fresh Air & Keep Dirty Sock Syndrome Away

When Edenton resident Keith Stevens strangely continued coughing for a couple of months, he and his wife were concerned. Sure enough, mold entered their home after a heavy rain.

Through a mutual friend, Keith connected with mold remediator Harry Cannon of Dwelling Management Solutions. DMS fogged his entire house- including the crawlspace, attic, and HVAC ducts.

“My wife and I noticed significant improvements and a purer air,” Keith said.  

“He was proactive,” Stevens noted, “and [since arranging subsequent treatments] I have a high level of confidence. You have a partner, not just a short-term service provider.”  

Recently, Cannon and his team shared their expertise with another couple, the Felton’s, in Camden. Sharon Felton contacted Andy Fox and Wavy News 10 after reporting about 5 years of problems with a foul smell resembling dirty socks in her home.

“We’ve found if we don’t pay attention to the HVAC system, then the contaminated air can continuously be recirculated,” Cannon noted while on the scene.

Known as Dirty Sock Syndrome, this condition is the result of mold, bacteria, dust, dead rodents, and other particulates that build upon your air conditioning coil. This is not directly related to any one manufacturer or dealer but is industry related.

A homeowner or business could become so familiar with Dirty Sock Syndrome they might not notice until leaving and encountering an offensive smell and other issues.

Most of the mold and bacteria that accumulates is not detrimental unless you have a compromised immune system, asthma, or allergies. However, you could experience symptoms such as sneezing, coughing, running eyes and nose, etc.

You don’t have to spend big bucks replacing your HVAC coil, sometimes annually, which costs upwards of $1,200 per coil. We have a simple process using proprietary, EPA-approved chemicals to kill impurities and improve your air quality.
