Water-Only Steamer Qualifies As A Disinfection Device For The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency
Online PR News – 29-May-2012 – Vernon Hills/Illinois – Zadoozy, the Internet’s best source for top performing products that promote a healthy, clean home, announced today that its top-selling steam cleaner is the Ladybug Tekno 2350 steam cleaner.
The Tekno ships standard with Ladybug’s proprietary patented Thermo Accelerated Nano Crystal Sanitation, or TANCS®, technology.
Coming in at No. 2 is the Ladybug XL 2300 steam cleaner, sometimes called the Ladybug XLT 2300 steam cleaner, which offers TANCS® as an option.
“Steam cleaners equipped 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.
Steam cleaners armed with TANCS® like the Tekno qualify as disinfection devices for the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and carry an EPA establishment number (EPA Est. No. 82121-WA-01) right on the machine.
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.”
A national ecommerce company headquartered at 1000 Butterfield Road, Suite 1029 in Vernon Hills, Illinois, Zadoozy is an authorized dealer for each brand they sell.
