1-800-GO-VAPOR.com Offers Holiday Shoppers Free Ladybug Steam Cleaner ‘Tuff’ Kit

When Equipped with TANCS®, Ladybug Steamers Qualify As Disinfection Devices For The EPA

Online PR News – 03-December-2010 – – A leading marketer of vapor steam cleaning systems nationwide today announced that shoppers purchasing a Ladybug steam cleaner this holiday season will receive a free ‘Tuff’ Kit valued at $30. The kit includes 2 stainless steel pads and 2 brass brushes.

When equipped with Ladybug’s proprietary patented TANCS® technology, Ladybug steam cleaners are scientifically proven to produce better results than traditional disinfectants and qualify as disinfection devices for the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

“The use of the term ‘disinfectant’ is regulated by the EPA,” says V.K. Dunlop, vice president at 1-800-GO-VAPOR.com. “Ladybug steam cleaners equipped with TANCS® display an EPA Establishment Number (EPA Est. No. 82121-WA-01) right on the device using a yellow label. Qualifying as a disinfection device for the EPA makes TANCS®-equipped steamers suitable for many commercial settings such as dental offices, animal clinics, hospitals, restaurants, nursing homes, supermarkets and schools where the highest level of cleanliness is required.”

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 3 seconds.”

A Ladybug steam cleaner with TANCS® uses the minerals in ordinary tap water to generate high temperature dry steam for cleaning and killing biofilms without chemicals that harm human health and the environment. TANCS® comes standard with the top-selling Ladybug Tekno 2350 steam cleaner, and is available as an option with the Ladybug XL2300 steam cleaner and the Ladybug 2200S steam cleaner.

“When a Ladybug steamer with TANCS® s 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.”

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.”

“So if you’re looking for a hot, eco-friendly gift this holiday season, spend some time on our Website,” says Dunlop. “Or give us a call. Giving your loved ones and friends a steam cleaner that will help them live healthier is a wonderful thing to do during the holidays."
