Using ordinary tap water, TANCS®-equipped vapor steam cleaners qualify as disinfection devices for the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, making them more suitable than traditional hard-surface disinfectants for many supermarket settings.
Lake Forest, Illinois (PRWEB) November 30, 2012
1-800-GO-VAPOR.com, a leading marketer of non-toxic vapor steam cleaners with residential and commercial customers in every state in the nation and seven foreign countries, today announced that TANCS®-equipped Ladybug steam cleaners like the top-selling Ladybug Tekno 2350 steam cleaner are lab tested and scientifically proven to produce better results than traditional disinfectants.
“This makes the Tekno ideal for supermarket cleaning staff to thoroughly clean, deodorize and maintain bakery exhaust hoods, deli slicing machines, meat department band saws, produce preparation tables, shopping carts, and dairy department steel shelving and walk-in coolers,” says V. K. Dunlop of 1-800-GO-VAPOR.com. “With simplified water-only protocols, there are no MSDS requirements to comply with or records to maintain.”
According to the Integrated Benefits Institute, exposure to cleaning chemicals is the largest contributing risk factor for occupational illness and injury.
Using ordinary tap water, the Ladybug Tekno 2350 with Ladybug’s proprietary patented Thermo Accelerated Nano Crystal Sanitation (TANCS®) technology qualifies as a disinfection device for the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA Est. No. 82121-WA-01), making it more suitable than traditional hard-surface disinfectants for many supermarket settings.
“While bleach has been trusted for years as the perfect disinfectant, bleach leaves as many live bacteria cells as dead cells,” says Dunlop. “But scientific testing has found that steam cleaners equipped with TANCS® kill the cells that are unreachable by bleach.”
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.”
