Two products for cleaning and sanitizing air handlers are available. The Dirty Sox Kit is an annual, three-step application process that treats the evaporator coil. It is generally applied in the fall or winter months and in systems where Dirty Sock Syndrome is thought to be present. The first step is to apply Instant Powder Kegs coil cleaner to clean the evaporator coil of deposit buildup. The second step is to apply Fast Attack to sanitize the coil, and remove any odor-causing algae, fungus, bacteria, or mold. The third step is to apply First Strike Micro Coat to the coil surface to protect against future buildup of dirt and contamination. The CleanAC Kit is an annual, four-step application process that treats both the evaporator coil and condensate pan. It is generally applied in the spring or summer months when condensate pans accumulate moisture, and in systems requiring a thorough cleaning. The first three steps are identical to those listed for the Dirty Sox Kit. The fourth step is to place a PanGuard timed-release strip, which eliminates clogs and overflows due to deposit accumulation, in the HVAC condensate drip pan.
