A 99.9999% reduction of MRSA and VRE on surfaces within 5 seconds is a level of performance that chemical disinfectants may never achieve.

Between now and spring, shoppers who purchase a chemical-free Ladybug Tekno vapor steam cleaner will receive a complimentary accessory set valued at $30, 1-800-GO-VAPOR.com, an ecommerce company that holds the top Google search engine ranking for vapor steam cleaners, announced today.
It’s almost that time of the year again to scrub the shower, clean the grout and wash the widows, says V. K. Dunlop of 1-800-GO-VAPOR.com. But according to Dunlop, consumers should be leery of using traditional household cleaning supplies.
“Ever wonder what’s in those cleaning products cheerfully lining grocery store shelves?” Dunlop asks. “You won’t learn a lot looking at the labels.”
That true, explains Dunlop, because manufacturers of household cleaners are not required to list ingredients, so what you often see instead is vague descriptors like ‘dye’ or ‘fragrance.’
But many cleaning products contain chemicals that are unsafe for our health, according to Dunlop. 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 shower 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 from your local supermarket, and keep the window open to avoid the fumes. Those fumes are dangerous to anyone who inhales them.”
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.”
Between now and the start of spring, shoppers who purchase a chemical-free Ladybug Tekno steam cleaner will receive a complimentary accessory set valued at $30. Because the Tekno is equipped with Ladybug’s TANCS® technology, it qualifies as a disinfection device for the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, making the Tekno suitable for many commercial settings such as dental offices, animal clinics, hospitals, restaurants, nursing homes, supermarkets and schools where the highest level of cleanliness is required.
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.”
