Steamer Achieves A Greater Kill Rate In Three Seconds Than A 20-Minute Exposure To Bleach
Online PR News – 12-January-2011 – – According to a series of studies by the Center for Research in Environmental Epidemiology in Barcelona, Spain, cleaning sprays, chlorine bleach and chemical disinfectants may be contributing to the rise in asthma. A leading nationwide marketer of vapor steam cleaners announced today that it hopes to help some of these asthma sufferers by making the water-only Ladybug Tekno 2350 steam cleaner more affordable.
“According to the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America, 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 disease,” says V.K. Dunlop, vice president of 1-800-GO-VAPOR.com. “The TANCS®-equipped Ladybug Tekno steam cleaner is scientifically proven to disinfect better and faster than traditional disinfectants without chemicals.”
"Scientific studies have found that biofilms can be up to 1000 times more resistant to biocide inactivation than are suspended microbes,” said Chuanwu Xi, Assistant Professor in the Department of Environmental Health at the University of Michigan. “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 armed with Ladybug’s proprietary patented TANCS® technology qualify as a disinfection device for the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
“Since 1980, the asthma death rate in the U.S. has increased by 50%,” says Dunlop. “While there is not cure for asthma, cleaning without chemicals can help manage the disease. 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.
