Vapor Steam Cleaner Launches War Against Bed Bugs
Online PR News – 31-January-2011 – – 1-800-GO-VAPOR.com, a company that prides itself in marketing the industry’s best vapor steam cleaners at competitively low prices to customers in every state in the nation and seven foreign countries while maintaining an unblemished A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau, today explained that water and heat are a lethal bed bug killing combination.
Rare for a time, bed bugs today are found just about everywhere—from hotels and apartments to dorm rooms and private homes. Even movie theaters and clothing stores are infested with the bloodsucking pests, whose bites leave itchy red welts.
But there’s a solution than does not involve using toxic chemicals that annihilate everything in their path. According to V.K. Dunlop, a vice president at Chicago-area 1-800-GO-VAPOR.com, Ladybug steam cleaners are proven to instantly eliminate bed bugs—which are normally very difficult to kill—from clothing, furniture and bedding.
Bed bugs and their eggs are rapidly killed when exposed to temperatures over 113°F.
“Doing away with bed bugs used to be a challenge,” says Dunlop. “The critters can survive for a year or longer without a meal. Sure, you can purchase toxic chemicals that will kill the bed bugs over time. But if toxic chemicals are removing the bed bugs from you home, what’s removing the toxic chemicals? These chemicals can cause serious and adverse impacts on your health. Fortunately, you don’t have to douse your bed in chemicals that harm you and the planet.”
Ladybug steam cleaners use heated vapor steam between 245°F and 260°F instead of chemicals to instantly kill bed bugs—which are about the size of an apple seed—and the eggs they leave behind. And because vapor steam is only about 4% water, whatever you clean dries in a matter of minutes.
“Vapor particles are so small they can reach nooks and crannies chemicals cannot,” says Dunlop. “With a vapor steam cleaner like the affordable Ladybug 2150 steam cleaner bed bugs have nowhere to hide and are a thing of the past. And because Ladybug steamers kill bed bugs right away, they can be more economical than chemical alternatives that take several treatments.”
Located in Lake Forest, Illinois, 1-800-GO-VAPOR.com is moving fast to educate consumers and businesses that finally, there's a feasible, environmentally friendly alternative to chemicals. The company markets Reliable, Vapamore and Ladybug steam cleaners. 1-800-GO-VAPOR.com’s top-selling Ladybug Tekno 2350 steam cleaner, which comes standard with Ladybug’s proprietary patented TANCS® technology, qualifies as a disinfection device for the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and is scientifically proven to achieve a greater kill rate in 3 seconds than a 20-minute exposure to bleach.
According to Chuanwu Xi, Assistant Professor in the Department of Environmental Health at the University of Michigan, "Scientific studies have found that biofilms can be up to 1000 times more resistant to biocide inactivation than are suspended microbes. It is extremely difficult to get rid of biofilms and kill them. The efficacy of the steam vapor system is important because even strong chemical disinfectants such as bleach when allowed 20 minutes of dwell time did not achieve the same degree of kill that the TANCS®-equipped unit accomplished in three seconds.”
