Promotes A Water-Only ‘Green’ Cleaning System That Qualifies As A Disinfection Device For The EPA
Online PR News – 21-October-2010 – – Imagine being able to disinfect just about any surface better than traditional chemical disinfectants using only water—that’s just what Ladybug steam cleaners equipped with Ladybug’s proprietary patented TANCS® technology do.
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 Thermo Accelerated Nano Crystal Sanitation (or 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 thought 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 steam cleaner or the commercial-grade MondoVap 2400 vapor steam sanitization system have been scientifically proven to clean better than traditional disinfectants and qualify as disinfection devices for the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). 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.”
MRSA and VRE are groups of bacteria that cause several difficult-to-treat infections in humans, resulting in serious illness such as pneumonia. According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, more people in the U.S. now die from MRSA than from AIDS.
