Reach Nooks And Crannies Chemical Bed Bug Killers Cannot
Online PR News – 11-January-2011 – – Reports of bed bugs are still sweeping the nation. Rare for a time, the blood-sucking pests today are everywhere—from hotels and movie theaters to department stores and posh homes.
“People across the nation are in a panic mode and don’t know how to stop the hitchhiking vampires,” V.K. Dunlop of Chicago-based 1-800-GO-VAPOR.com explained today.
Because the cost of professional help can cost thousands of dollars, people are turning to dangerous, do-it-yourself eradication methods. But chemicals that can eliminate bed bug infestations are rare and by and large ineffective, as bed bugs have developed resistance to chemicals that are being used against them.
“Another problem is that chemicals can’t reach bed bugs in every nook and cranny where they hide,” says Dunlop.
A highly toxic chemical called propoxur does work better than most, but the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) banned the chemical for home use because of the damage it can cause to the nervous system of children.
“Fortunately there’s a safe, fast, economical remedy that does not involve using toxic chemicals that harm human health,” say Dunlop. “It’s called a vapor steam cleaner.”
While vapor steam cleaners are traditionally used to clean and sanitize surfaces without chemicals, professionals and consumers alike are discovering that these marvels of technology also instantly eliminate bed bugs from clothing, bedding, furniture and structural areas like baseboards.
“People don’t have to douse their homes in chemicals,” says Dunlop. “Ladybug steam cleaners use heated vapor steam instead of chemicals to instantly kill bed bugs and the eggs they leave behind. And because vapor particles are so small, they can reach cracks and crevices chemicals cannot.”
With a vapor steam cleaner like the affordable Ladybug 2150 steam cleaner or the top-selling Ladybug Tekno 2350 steam cleaner bed bugs have nowhere to hide and are a thing of the past. And because Ladybug steamers kill bed bugs right away, they can be more economical than chemical alternatives that take several treatments.
“Ladybug steam cleaners are known the world over as the crème de la crème of steam cleaning systems,” says Dunlop. “Don't be fooled by imitations that rely on chemical injectors. If you use toxic chemicals to remove bed bugs from your home, what removes the toxic chemicals? These chemicals are linked to asthma, allergies, birth defects, cancer and psychological abnormalities.”
Ladybug steam cleaners equipped with Ladybug’s proprietary patented TANCS® technology qualify as disinfection devices for the EPA. In addition to killing dist mites and bed bugs on contact, Ladybug steamers with TANCS® have been extensively tested and scientifically proven to disinfect surfaces in much less time and with greater safety and effectiveness than traditional typical 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.”
