Traditional Household Cleaners Linked To Rise In Asthma
Online PR News – 16-November-2010 – – Cleaning sprays, chlorine bleach and chemical disinfectants may be contributing to the rise in asthma according to a series of studies by the Centre for Research in Environmental Epidemiology (CREAL) in Barcelona, Spain. 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 the water-only Ladybug Tekno 2350 steam cleaner more affordable.
“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,” says V.K. Dunlop, 1-800-GO-VAPOR.com vice president. “The TANCS®-equipped Ladybug Tekno steam cleaner is 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 TANCS®-equipped steam cleaners achieves a greater kill rate in 3 seconds than a 20-minute exposure to bleach.
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.”
The top-selling Ladybug Tekno 2350 steam cleaner 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. Steam cleaners outfitted with Ladybug’s proprietary patented TANCS® technology qualify as a disinfection device for the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
“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.
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.
