Study Links Chemical Household Cleaners To Rise In Allergic Condition
Online PR News – 26-October-2010 – – About 300 million people worldwide suffer from asthma, which kills more than 4,000 a year in the U.S. Researchers at the Centre for Research in Environmental Epidemiology (CREAL) in Barcelona, Spain say cleaning sprays, chlorine bleach and chemical disinfectants may be contributing to the rise. 1-800-GO-VAPOR.com, a leading marketer of vapor steam cleaners nationwide, announced today that it hopes to help some of these asthma sufferers by making water-only Ladybug steam cleaners more affordable.
“Asthma cannot be cured but it can be controlled,” says V.K. Dunlop, 1-800-GO-VAPOR.com vice president. “Each day 11 people die of asthma in the U.S., and there is growing evidence that exposure to household chemical cleaners can provoke the respiratory disorder. Ladybug steam cleaners are scientifically proven to disinfect better and faster than traditional disinfectants—without chemicals.”
While bleach has been trusted for years as the perfect disinfectant, current research shows that a 60-minute exposure to bleach leaves as many live bacteria cells as dead cells. But, fortunately for asthma sufferers, scientific testing found that Ladybug steam cleaners equipped with Ladybug’s proprietary patented TANCS® (Thermo Accelerated Nano Crystal Sanitation) technology kill the cells that are unreachable by bleach.
A Ladybug steam cleaner like the top-selling Ladybug Tekno 2350 steam cleaner, which comes standard with TANCS®, allows asthma sufferers to effortlessly use proprietary water treatment with nano crystals to destroy microorganisms, eliminate biofilms, kill bacteria and disinfect almost any surface far better and quicker than most chemical disinfectants. Not only do steam cleaners outfitted with TANCS® qualify as a disinfection device with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, but they also have been scientifically proven to kill drug-resistant superbug infections like MRSA and VRE within 5 seconds.
“The asthma death rate in the U.S. has increased by 50% since 1980,” says Dunlop. “Asthma sufferers everywhere can benefit from owning a steam cleaner. The Ladybug Tekno not only cleans and disinfects faster and healthier than most chemical disinfectants—it does a better job.”
To make the Tekno more affordable, for a limited time 1-800-GO-VAPOR.com is including a free accessory set worth $30 with each Tekno order.
All Ladybug steam cleaners kill dust mites and bed bugs on contact, remove allergens, kill bacteria, and remove mold and mildew. They are ideal for cleaning and sanitizing tile floors, grout, kitchens and bathrooms, children's toys, workout rooms, auto interiors, scatter rugs, pet areas and much more.
