MRSA Killing Vapor Steam Cleaner Achieves A Greater Kill Rate In 3 Seconds Than A Twenty Minute Exposure To Bleach
Online PR News – 10-January-2012 – – Zadoozy, the Internet’s best source for top performing products that promote a healthy, clean home, explained today that the Ladybug Tekno 2350 steam cleaner on display at the new Zadoozy showroom/warehouse in Vernon Hills, Illinois qualifies as a disinfection device for the U. S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
“Steam cleaners armed with TANCS® have been extensively tested and scientifically proven to disinfect surfaces in much less time and with greater safety and effectiveness than traditional disinfectants,” says Zadoozy co-founder Matt Delfino.
TANCS® stands for Thermo Accelerated Nano Crystal Sanitation. Steam cleaners equipped with TANCS®, like the Tekno, carry an EPA establishment number (EPA Est. No. 82121-WA-01) right on the machine.
According to Delfino, TANCS® is not an ingredient you add to your steam cleaner. Nor is it an attachment. TANCS® is a factory-installed internal component that modifies the crystal structure of the naturally occurring minerals in ordinary tap water to destroy microorganisms in a very short time.
“When a Ladybug steam cleaner with TANCS® is turned on, the water and minerals pass through the boiler, where the heat converts the water to superheated steam,” says Delfino. “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.”
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.”
Chuanwu Xi, Assistant Professor in the Department of Environmental Health at the University of Michigan, adds, "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.”
In addition to Ladybug steam cleaners, Zadoozy markets Miele vacuum cleaners, IQAir air purifiers, SEBO vacuum cleaners, Austin Air products and more.
