Water-Only Steam Cleaners Kill The Bloodsucking Pests The Environmentally Safe Way
Online PR News – 24-September-2011 – – A leading nationwide marketer of vapor steam cleaners announced today that Ladybug steam cleaners are proven to instantly eliminate bed bugs from clothing, bedding, furniture and structural areas like baseboards—without the use of toxic chemicals.
The bed bug crisis continues, says Chicago-area 1-800-GO-VAPOR.com. The bloodsucking pests are everywhere—from hotels and movie theaters to department stores and posh homes.
“People are in panic over bed bugs and are turning to dangerous, do-it-yourself chemical eradication methods,” says V. K. Dunlop, a vice president with the company.
But doing your own bed bug work can be fatal.
According to a report issued today by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), 39 people became sick and one person died in 2010 because of insecticides used to kill bed bugs.
In addition to being dangerous to your health, chemicals that can eliminate bed bug infestations are generally ineffective, as bed bugs have developed resistance to chemicals that are being used against them. Another problem is that chemicals can’t reach bed bugs in every nook and cranny where they hide. A highly toxic chemical called propoxur does work better than most, but the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has banned the chemical for home use because of the damage it can cause to the nervous system of children.
“Fortunately people don’t have to douse their homes in chemicals,” says Dunlop. “Ladybug steam cleaners use heated vapor steam instead of chemicals to instantly kill bed bugs and the eggs they leave behind. And because vapor particles are so small, they can reach cracks and crevices chemicals cannot.”
With an affordable steamer like the Ladybug 2150 steam cleaner, or a high-end model like the Ladybug Tekno 2350 steam cleaner, bed bugs have nowhere to hide and are a thing of the past. And because steam cleaners kill bed bugs right away, they can be more economical than chemical alternatives that take several treatments.
