BARNSTABLE, Mass., April 3, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- UV Flu Technologies, Inc. (OTCQB: UVFT)(the "Company") announced today that the Company is forecasting that this year may the worst allergy season ever, particularly in the Northeast, as well as many northern states.
"This Winter has conditions in place for a horrible allergy season," said Jack Lennon, President of UV Flu Technologies. "Record snowfalls in many of the 48 states this season that did get snow, not only put in place high levels of moisture, but record levels of nitrogen, which stimulates plant growth in a fertilizer-like fashion. When added to the warmer global temperatures, longer allergy season, and higher CO2 levels, we expect record levels of pollen, mold and mildew, particularly acute in areas that were impacted by Hurricane Sandy," said Mr. Lennon
"We highly recommend a high quality air purifier, like our ViraTech UV-400, to the over 50 million Americans that suffer from allergy and asthma symptoms. Although our device is filter-less, and treats almost all forms of indoor air pollution, including smoke and toxic chemicals, it is very important that users of filter-based technologies change their filters regularly, as the filter mediums can become infected, and actually make allergies worse," said Mr. Lennon.
"Consumers are just beginning to recognize that the purchase of a high quality air purifier may be the most cost-effective purchase they've ever made for the health and safety of their entire family, particularly families with asthma, allergies, or other medical conditions. No one would ever allow their children to drink water they knew to be contaminated, yet the toxic air they breathe daily in their home is left untreated. Ninety-eight percent of consumers that purchase our ViraTech UV-400 air purifier report dramatically reduced levels of allergy symptoms, along with better sleep at night."
"Our 1st quarter sales increased 75%, but we expect growth rates two to three times this rate for the second and third quarter of this year. With this in mind, we are adding Mr. Glenn Bushee, President of Brite-Strike Technologies, to our Board of Directors. Mr. Bushee's extensive experience in marketing and production will be of immense value to our Company," said Mr. Lennon.
