Water-Only Device Provides A Level Of Performance Conventional Disinfectants May Never Achieve
Online PR News – 01-June-2012 – Lake Forest/Illinois – Steam cleaners equipped with Ladybug’s proprietary patented TANCS® technology are lab tested to produce better results than traditional disinfectants a leading player in the green cleaning industry announced today.
According to 1-800-GO-VAPOR.com, Thermo Accelerated Nano Crystal Sanitation technology—called TANCS®—qualifies as a disinfection device for the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA Est. No. 82121-WA-01), making TANCS®-equipped vapor steam systems like the Ladybug Tekno 2350 steam cleaner suitable for many commercial settings such as dental offices, animal clinics, restaurants, nursing homes, supermarkets and schools where the highest level of cleanliness is required.
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.”
The Ladybug Tekno 2350 steam cleaner uses the minerals in ordinary tap water to generate high temperature dry steam for cleaning and killing biofilms without chemicals that harm human health and the environment.
“The Tekno is the pinnacle of design and engineering,” says V.K. Dunlop, vice president of 1-800-GO-VAPOR.com. “When the Tekno 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.”
According to Chuanwu Xi, Assistant Professor in the Department of Environmental Health at the University of Michigan, "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 come with an 8-year boiler warranty.
