Lake Forest, IL (PRWEB) November 12, 2012
1-800-GO-VAPOR.com, a leading marketer of Ladybug vapor steam cleaners with customers in every state in the nation and seven foreign countries, today announced that it intends to actively market the Ladybug Tekno 2350 steam vapor sanitization system to nursing homes and assisted living facilities.
“In addition to reducing noise, carpet is used in nursing homes and other long-term care settings to cushion falls,” says V. K. Dunlop of 1-800-GO-VAPOR.com. “But a common complaint of family members is obnoxious odors. The smell of urine is the greatest problem.”
Vapor steam cleaners are ideal for spot cleaning, disinfecting and deodorizing carpets without the use of toxic chemicals that are hazardous to nursing home residents and cleaning staff.
Steam vapor systems like the Tekno 2350 are lab tested and scientifically proven to produce better results than traditional disinfectants. With simplified water-only protocols, there are no MSDS requirements to comply with or records to maintain.
“This makes the Tekno ideal for nursing home cleaning staff,” says Dunlop. “The hot vapor frees the carpet of urine and other unwanted contaminants, and restores and maintains the color while raising the pile back to its former height.”
Using ordinary tap water, the Ladybug Tekno 2350 with Ladybug’s proprietary patented Thermo Accelerated Nano Crystal Sanitation (TANCS®) technology qualifies as a disinfection device for the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA Est. No. 82121-WA-01). In addition to carpets and other flooring, the Tekno is more suitable than traditional disinfectants for cleaning other nursing home settings like upholstery, bathrooms, windows and kitchen areas.
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.”
