Heat, Not Chemicals, Kills The Tiny Vampires
Online PR News – 23-August-2010 – – Rare for a time, bed bugs today are found just about everywhere across the world—from hotels and movie theaters to retail stores and private homes. Even the basement of New York City’s most iconic building, the Empire State Building, is infested with the blood-sucking pests.
“People are in a panic mode and don’t know how to stop the vermin,” V.K. Dunlop of Chicago-based 1-800-GO-VAPOR.com explained today. “The cost of professional help can cost thousands of dollars. So people are turning to dangerous, do-it-yourself eradication methods.”
Chemicals available to the public that can eliminate bed bug infestations are rare and generally ineffective, as bed bugs have developed resistance to chemicals that are being used against them abroad. Another problem is that chemicals cannot reach bed bugs in every nook and cranny where they hide. While a highly toxic chemical called propoxur does work better than most, the EPA has banned the chemical for home use because of the damage it can cause to the nervous system of children.
“Fortunately there’s a safe, fast, economical remedy that does not involve using toxic chemicals that harm human health,” say Dunlop. “It’s called a vapor steam cleaner.”
While vapor steam cleaners are mostly used to clean and sanitize surfaces without chemicals, more and more consumers are discovering that these marvels of technology also instantly eliminate bed bugs from clothing, furniture and bedding.
“Consumes don’t have to douse their beds in chemicals that harm them and the planet,” explains Dunlop. “Ladybug steam cleaners use heated vapor steam instead of chemicals to instantly kill bed bugs and the eggs they leave behind. And because vapor particles are so small, they can reach cracks and crevices chemicals cannot.”
With a vapor steam cleaner like the affordable residential Ladybug 2150 steam cleaner or the industrial-grade MondoVap 2400 vapor steam sanitization system bed bugs have nowhere to hide and are a thing of the past. And because Ladybug steamers kill bed bugs right away, they can be more economical than chemical alternatives that take several treatments.
“We’ve had several customers partner with a neighbor on sharing the cost to buy a Ladybug,” says Dunlop. “Considering the alternative, that makes good sense for those on a budget. If you use toxic chemicals to remove bed bugs from your home, what removes the toxic chemicals? These chemicals are linked to asthma, allergies, birth defects, cancer and psychological abnormalities.”
