Lake Forest, Illinois (PRWEB) December 28, 2012
Now that Santa has come and gone and New Year’s Eve is around the corner, it’s time to start thinking about a clean and chemical-free environment. As part of their commitment to sustainability, and to encourage consumers to ditch their traditional toxic household cleaning supplies in 2013, 1-800-GO-VAPOR.com, the nation’s leading go-to source for quality build vapor steam cleaners, today announced that consumers who purchase a chemical-free Ladybug steam vapor system from them this January will receive a complimentary accessory set valued at $30.
“Have you ever wondered what’s in those cleaning products cheerfully lining up on supermarket shelves?” asks V. K. Dunlop of 1-800-GO-VAPOR.com. “They may be making you sick.”
That true, Dunlop says, because manufacturers of household cleaners are not required by law to list ingredients, so what you often see instead is vague descriptors like ‘dye’ or ‘fragrance.’
But according to Dunlop, supermarket shelves are filled with a multitude of harmful cleaners in addition to chlorine products that are unsafe for human health. Surprisingly, she warns, there are over 82,000 chemicals currently used in the U.S. in everyday products, and only 200 of these have been tested for safety. Meanwhile breast cancer, autism, asthma, reproductive disorders and other health problems linked to chemicals are on the rise.
Dunlop uses bathroom cleaning as an example.
“Scrubbing the shower is one of the most dangerous jobs you do around your home,” she says. “You probably wear latex gloves, use a bathroom cleaner with bleach, and keep the window open to avoid the fumes. Those fumes are poisonous to anyone who breathes them.”
But cleaning a bathroom does not have to be a situation where you inhale toxic fumes in order to clear away soap scum.
“Using a Ladybug vapor steam cleaner will keep your bathroom sparkling clean in half the time without the toxic side affects,” says Dunlop.
While bleach has been trusted for years as the perfect disinfectant, current research shows that Ladybug steam cleaners equipped with Ladybug’s proprietary patented Thermo Accelerated Nano Crystal Sanitation technology—called TANCS®—produce better results using ordinary tap water.
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.
When equipped with Ladybug’s optional TANCS® technology, the Ladybug 2200S steam cleaner and the popular Ladybug XL2300 steam cleaner qualify as disinfection devices for the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. TANCS® comes standard with the Ladybug Tekno 2350 steam cleaner.
