Thousand Palms, CA (PRWEB) March 27, 2008
A new five-year study released last week from the University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston suggests many with severe West Nile Virus disease may never fully recover, and according to the Center for Disease Control (CDC), http://www.cdc.gov/ncidod/dvbid/westnile/index.htm, the virus is now in most of the United States. The CDC suggests mosquito-proofing homes as a crucial line of defense against the West Nile Virus by draining standing water, inspecting for insect breeding grounds, and repairing or installing screen doors and windows.
Screenmobile, a national home delivery screen installation company, is aiding homeowners in safeguarding their homes against West Nile infected mosquitoes. The company recommends that screens be replaced if they have tears or holes, or frames that are loose or bowed. Additionally, homeowners who live in areas where tinier insects are prevalent should look into a tighter weave. Homes with enclosed decks benefit from screens underneath to prevent insects from coming in through the floor.
"Everyone loves fresh in their homes, but it's necessary to be protected from insect invasion," says Scott Walker, president and CEO of Screenmobile. "Fixing and installing screen doors and windows is a quick and affordable way to stay protected from insect invasions."
Insect-control screens cost on average $20-$50 per window, depending on size, and come in a variety of fabrics, weaves and colors. In addition to protecting from mosquitoes, screens block the sun's heat and glare, offer excellent outward visibility and improve daytime privacy. They work with open or closed windows. It is recommended to replace screens every five years to seven years, (in some conditions, screens last much longer), to ensure effectiveness and safety.
With more than 20 years of experience and 98 locations nationwide, Screenmobile specializes in home delivery and installation of screens for windows, doors, patios, porches, lanais and garages, as well as sun shades, storm windows, and pet doors, screens and guards.
