Promotion Encourages Americans To Ditch Asthma-Provoking Toxic Household Cleaning Supplies This Spring Cleaning Season
Online PR News – 02-May-2011 – – Just in time for spring, 1-800-GO-VAPOR.com, a leading nationwide marketer of vapor steam cleaning systems, today announced that the company is continuing its special promotion to encourage Americans to ditch their toxic household cleaning products.
Cleaning sprays, chlorine bleach and chemical disinfectants may be contributing to the rise in asthma according to a series of studies by the Centre for Research in Environmental Epidemiology (CREAL) in Barcelona, Spain. 1-800-GO-VAPOR.com hopes to help some of these asthma sufferers by making chemical-free Ladybug steam cleaners more affordable.
“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,” says V.K. Dunlop, 1-800-GO-VAPOR.com vice president. “Ladybug steam cleaners equipped with Ladybug’s proprietary patented Thermo Accelerated Nano Crystal Sanitation technology—called TANCS®—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 TANCS®-equipped steam cleaners 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.”
Ladybug steam cleaners like the popular Ladybug 2200S steam cleaner and the Ladybug XL2300 steam cleaner, sometimes called the Ladybug XLT2300 steam cleaner, qualify as disinfection devices for the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency when equipped with the TANCS® option.
To make Ladybug steam cleaners more affordable for spring cleaning, 1-800-GO-VAPOR.com is including a free accessory set worth $30 with each Ladybug order for a limited time.
