Green Cleaning System Wipes Out MRSA Bug In 5 Seconds
Online PR News – 18-July-2011 – – According to nationwide steam cleaner marketer 1-800-GO-VAPOR.com, water-only Ladybug vapor steam cleaners armed with Ladybug’s proprietary patented TANCS® technology are scientifically proven to produce better results than traditional disinfectants.
“TANCS® qualifies as a disinfection device for the U.S. Environmental Protection,” V.K. Dunlop of 1-800-GO-VAPOR.com explained today.
According to Benjamin Tanner, 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.”
Ladybug steam cleaners like the top-selling Ladybug Tekno 2350 steam cleaner use the minerals in ordinary tap water to generate high temperature dry steam for cleaning and killing biofilms without cancer-causing chemicals.
“Millions of consumers believe that because a disinfectant is sold at the grocery it is safe,” says Dunlop. “It’s not. The dangers of traditional household cleaners including bleach are well documented.”
According to Chuanwu Xi, an assistant professor at the University of Michigan Department of Environmental Health, "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’s proprietary patented TANCS® technology 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. TANCS®-equipped steamers have an 8-year boiler warranty.
