MRSA Killing Vapor Steam Cleaners Wipe Out Bed Bugs, Too

Chemical-Free Steamers Modify The Crystal Structure Of Mineral In Tap Water To Qualify As Disinfection Devices For The EPA

Online PR News – 12-May-2011 – – According to a new study, researchers in Canada have found MRSA, a bacteria resistant to common antibiotics, in bed bugs from three hospital patients from a blighted area of Vancouver.

Although bed bugs have not been know to spread disease, they can cause itching. If scratching breaks open the skin, researchers say MRSA (methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus) can set in.

“Steam cleaners equipped with Thermo Accelerated Nano Crystal Sanitation technology, or TANCS®, are scientifically proven to wipe out MRSA in seconds,” V. K. Dunlop of, a nationwide marketer of TANCS®-equipped vapor steam cleaners, explained today. “These marvels of technology also kill bed bugs on contact with 250°F dry steam.”

According to Benjamin Tanner, PhD, president of Antimicrobial Test Laboratories, “The TANCS® System has shown extraordinary results in laboratory tests. A 99.9999% reduction of MRSA and VRE on surfaces within 5 seconds is a level of performance that chemical disinfectants may never achieve.”

When a steamer with TANCS® is turned on, the water and minerals pass through the boiler, where the heat converts the water to superheated steam. Before the steam exits the boiler, the crystal structure of the decomposing minerals is modified, allowing the steam to carry these ‘energized crystals’ to the surface of what is being cleaned. The result is a process that destroys microorganisms almost instantly while inhibiting the growth of new biofilm, or microorganism colonies, as the change in crystal structure combined with the superheated steam leaves no place for biofilms to attach.

Bed bugs are rapidly killed when exposed to temperatures over 113°F.

The proprietary patented TANCS® technology, which is available only in Ladybug steam cleaners, comes standard with the Ladybug Tekno 2350 steam cleaner and is available as an option with the Ladybug XL2300 steam cleaner and the Ladybug 2200S steam cleaner.
