Proprietary Technology Offers A Simple Water-Only Disinfection Process Approved By The EPA
Online PR News – 29-June-2010 – – 1-800-GO-VAPOR.com, a leading marketer of Ladybug steam cleaners nationwide with an unblemished A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau, today explained Ladybug’s patented TANCS technology.
“People are always asking us how TANCS works,” says V. K. Dunlop, a 1-800-GO-VAPOR.com vice president. “Although we’re not scientists by any stretch of the imagination, we though we’d take a stab at explaining TANCS in layman’s terms.”
According to Dunlop, 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 Dunlop. “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.”
Ladybug steam cleaners with TANCS such as the top-selling Ladybug Tekno 2350 have been certified by Nelson Labs of Utah to clean thousands of times better than most chemicals and qualify as a disinfection device with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). According to a published report by 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.”
MRSA and VRE are groups of bacteria that cause several difficult-to-treat infections in humans, resulting in serious illness such as pneumonia.
