Lake Forest, Illinois (PRWEB) July 24, 2012
1-800-GO-VAPOR.com, a leading nationwide marketer of vapor steam cleaners, announced today that TANCS®-equipped Ladybug steam cleaners can help control asthma by eliminating the need for bleach, which is a known cause of respiratory problems.
“Air quality has improved and people are smoking less,” says V. K. Dunlop of 1-800-GO-VAPOR.com. “So how do you explain a study that says the number of people with asthma is rising in the United States?”
Released last year on World Asthma Day by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the study found that in just eight years the number of people diagnosed with asthma in the U.S. grew by almost 5 million, specifically 25 million in 2009 compared to about 20 million in 2001. That means that 1 in 12 Americans live with the inflammatory disorder.
“If you are among the millions of Americans who suffers from asthma, everyday cleaning can trigger your condition,” says Dunlop.
According the Centre for Research in Environmental Epidemiology in Barcelona, Spain, cleaning sprays, chlorine bleach and chemical disinfectants may be contributing to the rise in asthma.
“Asthma can’t be cured but it can be controlled,” says Dunlop. “With growing evidence that exposure to household chemical cleaners can provoke asthma, it is important to know that Ladybug steam cleaners are scientifically proven to disinfect better and faster than traditional disinfectants using ordinary tap water.”
While bleach has been trusted for years as the perfect disinfectant, bleach leaves as many live bacteria cells as dead cells. But fortunately for asthma sufferers, scientific testing found that Ladybug steam cleaners when equipped with Ladybug’s proprietary patented Thermo Accelerated Nano Crystal Sanitation technology—called TANCS®—kill the cells that are unreachable by bleach.
"Scientific studies have found that biofilms can be up to 1000 times more resistant to biocide inactivation than are suspended microbes,” explains 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.”
A Ladybug steam cleaner like the top-selling Ladybug Tekno 2350 steam cleaner, which comes standard with TANCS®, allows asthma sufferers to effortlessly destroy microorganisms, eliminate biofilms, kill bacteria and disinfect almost any surface far better and quicker than most chemical disinfectants. TANCS®-equipped steam cleaners qualify as disinfection devices for the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
