Lake Forest, Illinois (PRWEB) July 26, 2012
According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, standard household bleach is a pesticide that contains the chemical sodium hypochlorite. For consumers looking to clean their homes without bleach, Chicago-area 1-800-GO-VAPOR.com announced today that Ladybug steam cleaners equipped with Ladybug’s proprietary patented TANCS® technology are lab tested to produce better results than bleach using ordinary tap water.
“TANCS® qualifies as a disinfection device for the EPA, making TANCS®-equipped vapor steam cleaners suitable for cleaning just about everything around the home, including kitchens and bathrooms where the highest level of cleanliness is required,” says V.K. Dunlop, vice president of 1-800-GO-VAPOR.com.
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.”
TANCS®-equipped vapor steam cleaners like the Ladybug Tekno 2350 steam cleaner use the minerals in ordinary tap water to generate high temperature dry steam for cleaning and killing biofilms without chemicals that harm human health and the environment.
When a Ladybug steam cleaner equipped with TANCS® is turned on, the water and minerals pass through the boiler, where the heat converts the water to superheated steam. Before the steam exits the boiler, the crystal structure of the decomposing minerals is modified, allowing the steam to carry these ‘energized crystals’ to the surface of what is being cleaned. The result is a process that destroys microorganisms almost instantly while inhibiting the growth of new biofilm, or microorganism colonies, as the change in crystal structure combined with the superheated steam leaves no place for biofilms to attach.
