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.
Lake Forest, IL (PRWEB) December 13, 2012
1-800-GO-VAPOR.com, a leading marketer of vapor steam cleaners with customers in every state in the nation and seven foreign countries, today announced that it intends to actively market the Ladybug Tekno 2350 steam cleaner to schools looking to reduce the risks of surfaces becoming contaminated with Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus Aureus (MRSA) infections.
“When MRSA skin infections happen, disinfection should be carried out immediately on surfaces that are likely to contact uncovered or poorly covered infections,” says V.K. Dunlop of 1-800-GO-VAPOR.com. “Cleaning surfaces using a steam vapor sanitization system that qualifies as a disinfection device for the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), such as the TANCS®-equipped Ladybug Tekno 2350 steam vapor system (EPA Est. No. 82121-WA-01), is scientifically proven to kill MRSA.”
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.”
In addition to killing MRSA, the Ladybug Tekno 2350 steam cleaner is more suitable than traditional hard-surface disinfectants for just about any school surface, including maintaining school restrooms, which many students avoid because they consider them a health threat.
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.”
