DR. MICHAEL BLAISS, Nationally-Recognized Allergist, Clinical Professor of Pediatrics and Medicine at the University of Tennessee
With spring allergy season upon us, it is important for the estimated 60 million Americans who are affected by nasal allergies to know how to locate lurking allergens to improve their spring cleaning routine. According to a Spring Cleaning Survey of more than one thousand adults, ninety four percent of respondents recognized that proper cleaning can help reduce incidences of illness including nasal allergies, yet four out of five people in the U.S. are exposed to house dust mites, the most common trigger of nasal allergy symptoms.
The Clean Sweep campaign encourages people to take an extra step in their spring cleaning by logging onto www.CleanSweepContest.com to view a home investigation by Jeff May which pinpoints the areas of the house where allergens often lurk. Nasal allergy sufferers are encouraged to ask Jeff May questions as to how they can better clean their home with an eye for allergens and submit a personal testimonial as to how their nasal allergies affect their daily life. The top 100 testimonials will win a signed copy of Jeff Mays book My House is Killing Me! to provide detailed cleaning tips and techniques to sweep away hidden allergens. Contestants are encouraged to visit the Web site frequently to learn if their questions have been answered by Allergen Xterminator Jeff May.
Jeff May is available to provide practical and often overlooked cleaning suggestions to help sweep, dust and wash away allergens likely to trigger nasal allergy symptoms. He can also discuss the most common places allergens hide so that the average American, who spends nearly 22 hours indoors, can properly manage their symptoms.
Michael Blaiss, M.D. is available to discuss the Clean Sweep campaign and provide perspective on the rise and prevalence of nasal allergies, ways to manage symptoms, and what you should expect from treatment.
