Traditional Household Cleaners Linked To Increase In Allergic Condition
Online PR News – 23-February-2011 – – An estimated 300 million people worldwide suffer from asthma and it seems to be on the rise. Cleaning sprays, chlorine bleach and chemical disinfectants may be contributing to the rise according to a series of studies by the Centre for Research in Environmental Epidemiology (CREAL) in Barcelona, Spain. 1-800-GO-VAPOR.com, a leading nationwide marketer of vapor steam cleaners, announced today that it hopes to help some of these asthma sufferers by making Ladybug steam cleaners more affordable.
“Asthma cannot be cured but it can be controlled,” says V.K. Dunlop, 1-800-GO-VAPOR.com vice president. “Each day 11 people die of asthma in the U.S., and there is growing evidence that exposure to household chemical cleaners can provoke the respiratory disorder. Ladybug steam cleaners are scientifically proven to disinfect better and faster than traditional disinfectants—without chemicals.”
While bleach has been trusted for years as the perfect disinfectant, current research shows that steam cleaners armed with Ladybug’s proprietary patented TANCS® technology 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.”
A Ladybug steam cleaner like the top-selling Ladybug Tekno 2350 steam cleaner, which comes standard with TANCS®, allows asthma sufferers to effortlessly use proprietary water treatment with nano crystals to destroy microorganisms, eliminate biofilms, kill bacteria and disinfect almost any surface far better and quicker than most chemical disinfectants. TANCS®-equipped steam cleaners qualify as disinfection devices for the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
“The asthma death rate in the U.S. has increased by 50% since 1980,” says Dunlop. “Asthma sufferers everywhere can benefit from owning a steam cleaner. The Ladybug Tekno not only cleans and disinfects faster and healthier than most chemical disinfectants—it does a better job.”
To make the Tekno more affordable, for a limited time 1-800-GO-VAPOR.com is including a free accessory set worth $30 with each Tekno order.
