Produces More Than Double The Temperature Required To Kill Bed Bugs And Disinfects Faster And More Effectively Than Typical EPA-Registered Chemical Disinfectants
Online PR News – 08-November-2010 – – 1-800-GO-VAPOR.com, a company that prides itself in offering the industry’s best vapor steam cleaners at competitively low prices to customers in every state in the nation and seven foreign countries, last week announced that it extended its hours for toll-free telephone ordering to accommodate the fast-growing demand for steam killers that kill bed bugs the natural way—without chemicals. Customers can now reach a live sales representative 7 days a week from 7:00 a.m. to 11:00 p.m. CST to help them select the steam cleaner that is right for them. Customers can still order 24 hours a day, 7 days a week via the Web. Hours for other customer support issues remain from 9:00 a.m to 5:30 p.m. Monday thru Friday.
“With more and more consumers interested in cleaning their homes without cancer-causing chemicals, the demand for ‘green’ cleaning steam cleaners has already been growing rapidly,” says V. K. Dunlop, 1-800-GO-VAPOR.com vice president. “But now, with the added incentive to kill bed bugs the natural way, demand has soared. People are starting to realize they don’t have to douse their beds in dangerous chemicals to eliminate bed bugs.”
Bed bugs and their eggs are rapidly killed when exposed to temperatures over 113°F. Generating temperatures more than double that, steam cleaners are the natural, pesticide-free way to kill the bloodsucking pests on contact.
“Ladybug steam cleaners equipped with Ladybug’s TANCS® technology also qualify as a disinfection device for the EPA,” says Dunlop. “Our top selling Ladybug Tekno 2350 steam cleaner, which comes standard with TANCS®, is scientifically proven to produce better results than traditional disinfectants.”
According to Chuanwu Xi, Assistant Professor in the Department of Environmental Health at the University of Michigan, "Scientific studies have found that biofilms can be up to 1000 times more resistant to biocide inactivation than are suspended microbes. It is extremely difficult to get rid of biofilms and kill them. The efficacy of the steam vapor system is important because even strong chemical disinfectants such as bleach when allowed 20 minutes of dwell time did not achieve the same degree of kill that the TANCS-equipped unit accomplished in three seconds.”
While TANCS® is standard with the Ladybug Tekno 2350 steamer, the proprietary patented technology is available as an option on most other Ladybug models, including the Ladybug XL 2300 steam cleaner with popular onboard tool caddy.
Besides killing bed bugs and disinfecting using ordinary tap water, steam cleaners equipped with TANCS® wipe out MRSA and VRE superbugs in seconds. “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,” said Benjamin Tanner, president of Antimicrobial Test Laboratories.
