Groundbreaking Water-Only Device Kills Multi-Drug Resistant Bacterium in 5 Seconds

Revolutionary Green Cleaning Technology Does Not Require Chemicals To Wipe Out MRSA And VRE

Online PR News – 05-August-2010 – –, a leading nationwide marketer of vapor steam cleaners, today explained that the Ladybug Tekno 2350 vapor steam cleaner equipped with Ladybug’s proprietary Thermo Accelerated Nano Crystal Sanitation (TANCS) technology allow consumers and businesses to effortlessly use proprietary water treatment with nano crystals to wipe out MRSA and VRE bacterium thousands of times better and quicker than most chemical disinfectants.

“The Tekno joins an impressive line of state-of-the-art Ladybug steamers designed to clean and deodorize while thoroughly killing multi-drug resistant organisms such as MRSA and VRE,” says V. K. Dunlop, a vice president with “These germs are not just found in hospitals anymore. You can pick them up anywhere there are people—the gym, school, the grocery store.”

Tested scientifically in four different laboratories, Ladybug steamers outfitted with the TANCS option qualify as a disinfection device with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. “The TANCS System has shown extraordinary results in laboratory tests,” said Benjamin Tanner, president of Antimicrobial Test Laboratories, in a published statement. “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 (methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus) and VRE (vancomycin-resistant Enterococcus) cause several difficult-to-treat infections in humans, resulting in serious illness such as pneumonia. While these germs are especially worrisome in hospitals where patients with open wounds and weakened immune systems are at risk, new research published in the journal Pediatrics found that community-based cases are becoming more common.

“It goes without saying that keeping your environment as clean as possible is very important,” says Dunlop. “Steam cleaners can help. But you don’t need one with a detergent chamber. Just look for an EPA Establishment Number. Your steamer doesn’t qualify as an EPA disinfection device unless it’s been certified by a recognized third party and has an EPA Establishment Number.”
