Pets and Cooking Can Cause “Dirty Sock Syndrome”

Home » Blog » Pets and Cooking Can Cause “Dirty Sock Syndrome”

Remember that smell in high school when you opened your gym bag? That’s the origin of the name “dirty sock syndrome” for your home. But for your home it isn’t dirty socks that cause the odors.

Most lingering odors in homes are caused by pets (the dog bed and cat litter box) or by cooking (fish, deep fat frying, onions, and other strong foods). Most people cover up these odors with scented candles and room sprays. But that doesn’t get rid of the cause. If you experience dirty sock syndrome in your home consider having an Air Scrubber installed. Not only will your home smell better, Air Scrubbers remove pollutants from your air and purify it, which makes your home healthier. Call us at 610-593-5129 or fill out our appointment form. We can have an Air Scrubber installed right away.
