All-New EnviroMate PRO EP1000 Produces 257°F Dry Steam, More Than Double The Temperature Needed To Kill Bed Bugs And Their Eggs

Online PR News – 02-November-2010 – – 1-800-GO-VAPOR.com opened for business in 1998 with a clear and unwavering mission. That was to change the way people clean. And that is exactly what they have been doing for 13 years. Now the company wants to change the way people kill bed bugs.

“Water and heat are a lethal bed bug killing combination,” V.K. Dunlop of 1-800-GO-VAPOR.com announced today. “The brand-new EnviroMate PRO EP1000 from Reliable Corporation converts ordinary tap water to a high temperature dry steam that kills bed bugs and the eggs they leave behind on contact.”

Chemicals that can eliminate bed bug infestations are rare and mostly ineffective, as bed bugs have developed resistance to the chemicals that replaced the synthetic insecticide DDT in the 1970s when it was banned.

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. Other chemicals can irritate the skin and eyes—or even cause cancer.

“The PRO EP1000 is a safe, fast, economical remedy that does not involve using toxic chemicals that harm human health,” says Dunlop.

While vapor steam cleaners like the Italian-designed PRO EP1000 are traditionally used to clean and sanitize surfaces without chemicals, professionals and consumers alike are discovering that these marvels of technology 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.”

The pristine white PRO EP1000 uses heated vapor steam instead of chemicals to instantly kill bed bugs and the eggs they leave behind, which are rapidly killed when exposed to temperatures over 113°F. And because vapor particles are so small, they can reach cracks and crevices chemicals cannot. With a vapor steam cleaner like the PRO EP1000 steamer bed bugs have nowhere to hide and are a thing of the past. And because the PRO EP1000 kills bed bugs right away, it can be more economical than chemical alternatives that take several treatments.

“The PRO is the perfect steamer for any commercial setting, yet it remains light and compact enough for use in the home,” says Dunlop.
