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.
Lake Forest, Illinois (PRWEB) January 02, 2013
In line with its mission to encourage businesses to ditch their toxic cleaning products, 1-800-GO-VAPOR.com, an authorized dealer of Ladybug steam vapor sanitization systems nationwide, today announced its plan to actively target commercial settings of all types with TANCS®-equipped vapor steam cleaners.
“While there is a lot of talk about vapor steam cleaners as an alternative to traditional cleaning products containing chemicals that are linked to all sorts of health risks such as cancer, only those made by Ladybug offer TANCS®,” says V. K. Dunlop of 1-800-GO-VAPOR.com. “It’s this factory-installed nano crystallization option that sets Ladybug apart.”
Ladybug steam cleaners equipped with TANCS® like the Ladybug Tekno 2350 vapor steam cleaner are scientifically proven to produce better results with ordinary tap water than typical EPA-registered chemical disinfectants.
Thermo Accelerated Nano Crystal Sanitation, or TANCS®, carries an EPA establishment number (EPA Est. No. 82121-WA-01), which is proudly displayed on the Tekno 2350 using a yellow sticker. Steam cleaners equipped with TANCS® 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.”
The Ladybug Tekno 2350 is perfect for hospital housekeeping staffs to clean wheelchairs, operating rooms, bed rails and gurneys, which are difficult to clean and disinfect quickly between each patient. Restaurant operators and supermarkets use the Tekno to sanitize food preparations surfaces, such as stovetops and hoods, countertops and cutting boards. It’s great for hotel housekeepers to thoroughly clean, deodorize and maintain guest rooms and public areas. It’s ideal to maintain school restrooms, which many students avoid because they consider them a health threat. Contractors knowing that exposure to mold can cause a variety of health effects use the Tekno for mold remediation. Airlines use the Tekno for aircraft interiors cleaning, deodorization and sanitization. And manufacturers use the Tekno to clean and sanitize processing equipment.
Dunlop explains how TANCS® works.
“When the Tekno 2350 is turned on, the water and minerals pass through the boiler, where the heat converts the water to superheated steam,” she says. “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.”
According to Benjamin Tanner, president of Antimicrobial Test Laboratories, “The TANCS® System has shown extraordinary results in laboratory tests. A 99.9999% reduction of MRSA and VRE on surfaces within 5 seconds is a level of performance that chemical disinfectants may never achieve.”
