Virginia Beach, Va. - As winter comes to an end, many people are looking ahead to the season that's promised to bring warmer temperatures and blossoming flowers -SPRING!

But it's also that that time of a year that can put millions of Americans in a sneezing and wheezing frenzy -an estimated 40 million to be exact.

It's spring cleaning that can make a big difference. After months of winter, it's no secret that dust mites and bacteria have been building up, and those indoor allergens are exactly what can trigger asthma and allergy symptoms.

For spring cleaning, it goes beyond opening doors and windows. Experts say it's important to really do a thorough cleaning through the inside of the home by moving furniture.
