NEHA - Housekeeping Channel Partnership to Improve Home Cleanliness and Health
Date:8/18/2009

Relationship to enhance the availability of environmental health research to consumers.

Boise, Idaho (PRWEB) August 18, 2009 -- The Housekeeping Channel (HC) and the National Environmental Health Association (NEHA) have announced a collaboration that will bring consumers the research necessary to help them make informed decisions to keep their homes clean and healthy. The Housekeeping Channel is an online resource dedicated to keeping consumers up-to-date with the latest cleaning tips and techniques. The relationship furthers NEHA's mission to "provide a healthful environment for all."

Now, visitors to The Housekeeping Channel will be able to access environmental health science data in easy-to-read articles pertaining to related health risk areas in their homes. Articles will cover topics such as indoor air quality, dust containment, toxic substances, children's environmental health, emerging pathogens such as the swine flu and MRSA, and pest management.

"Consumers often clean for appearance and do not understand the potential health implications of using particular cleaning products or processes," said Nelson E. Fabian, Executive Director and CEO of NEHA. "From asthma triggers to the long-term implications of toxic chemical exposure, there are a variety of potentially harmful agents associated with cleaning in the home. By increasing accessibility to NEHA research, consumers will have the information necessary to make educated decisions to keep their homes clean and families healthy."

"HC exists to help consumers clean, protect and enhance their home environment using proven processes and practices from experts," said Allen Rathey, President of The Housekeeping Channel. "Our relationship with NEHA is a clear extension of this mission, and we are gratified to be aligned with them and to help bring their expertise to mainstream consumers."

As a part of the agreement, Fabian will serve on the advisory board of The Housekeeping Channel. Serving as the Executive Director of NEHA for more than 25 years, Fabian has achieved several accolades, including the Journal of Environmental Health's "One of the Nation's Top 15 Leaders in Environmental Health" in 2007. Recently, Fabian has focused on the topic of pandemic outbreaks, giving numerous presentations on the subject and authoring online courses for environmental health practitioners.

"The direct correlation between cleaning and environmental health is becoming apparent to more consumers," added Fabian. "This relationship will bring consumers the information they need to make informed decisions that will help keep their homes safe and healthy."
