Lake Forest, Illinois (PRWEB) July 23, 2012
In line with its mission to encourage Americans to ditch their toxic household cleaning products, a leading nationwide marketer of vapor steam cleaners announced today that TANCS®-equipped Ladybug steam cleaners are scientifically proven to produce better results than typical EPA-registered chemical disinfectants.
“Americans who purchase and use traditional household cleaners could be exposing themselves and their families to endocrine-disrupting phthalates, carcinogenic benzene and organ-damaging phenols, just to name a few,” says V. K. Dunlop of Chicago-area 1-800-GO-VAPOR.com.
According to Dunlop, the root of the problem lies in the fact that manufacturers are not currently required to label their products with a full list of ingredients. So even some ‘green’ ones marketed as containing safer ingredients contain chemicals. This is alarming because a growing body of scientific evidence has linked health problems like autism, heart disease and breast cancer to the regular use of chemical household cleaners.
“While there is a lot of talk about steam cleaners as a ‘green’ cleaning alternative to toxic household cleaners, only those made by Ladybug offer TANCS®,” says Dunlop. “It’s this factory-installed nano crystallization option that sets Ladybug steam cleaners apart.”
Thermo Accelerated Nano Crystal Sanitation, or TANCS®, carries an EPA establishment number (EPA Est. No. 82121-WA-01). Steam cleaners armed with Ladybug’s proprietary patented TANCS® technology, like the top-selling Ladybug Tekno 2350 steam cleaner, 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.”
