Water And Heat Are Safer, Faster And More Effective
Online PR News – 16-September-2010 – – Because of a newly developed resistance to chemical pesticides, bed bugs are crawling all over the country and people in crisis are taking desperate measures. The critters are infesting homes and public places on a scale unseen in 50 years—from hotels and movie theaters to department stores and office buildings. Because bed bugs aren’t drawn to filth like cockroaches and other insects, they don’t discriminate. The tiny vampires are interested in one thing only—human blood—and even the most sterile environments have become infested.
“The tiny blood-suckers can’t swim or fly but they can thumb a ride anywhere by clinging to your clothing,” V.K. Dunlop of 1-800-GO-VAPOR.com explained today. “People everywhere are freaking out.”
Much of the nation is turning to dangerous chemical pesticides. But chemicals that can kill bed bug infestations are mostly ineffective, as bed bugs are building up immunity to chemicals. Some people that use insecticides anyway end up treated in hospitals.
Another problem is that chemicals can’t reach bed bugs in every nook and cranny where they hide. A highly toxic chemical called propoxur does work better than most, but the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) banned propoxur for home use in 2007 because the pesticide can damage the central nervous system of children.
“Fortunately there’s a safe, fast, economical remedy that does not involve using toxic chemicals that may put you in the hospital,” says Dunlop. “It’s called a vapor steam cleaner.”
While vapor steam cleaners are traditionally used to clean and sanitize surfaces without chemicals, professionals and consumers alike are discovering that these marvels of technology also instantly eliminate bed bugs from where they hide including in mattress seams, sheets, clothing, picture frames, furniture and structural areas like baseboards.
"Two months ago we were getting a couple of bed bug calls a week, now it's a couple of calls an hour,” says Dunlop. “The thing that people are starting to realize is that they don’t have to douse their homes in chemicals to eliminate bed bugs.”
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 Ladybug 2150 steam cleaner or the industrial-strength 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.
