Lake Forest, IL (PRWEB) December 22, 2012
Imagine being able to disinfect just about any surface better than traditional chemical disinfectants using only water. According to 1-800-GO-VAPOR.com, a leading nationwide marketer of vapor steam cleaners, that’s just what Ladybug steam cleaners armed with Ladybug’s proprietary patented TANCS® technology do.
1-800-GO-VAPOR.com today announced that almost 90% of customers who purchased a vapor steam cleaner from them over the past 90 days chose a Ladybug. The figure was approximately 75% for the same period last year.
“Ladybug sets the pace in the cleaning industry when it comes to chemical-free disinfecting, and with its proprietary patented TANCS® technology the brand demonstrates its leading role in this field,” says V. K. Dunlop of 1-800-GO-VAPOR.com.
According to Dunlop, Thermo Accelerated Nano Crystal Sanitation (or TANCS®) is not an ingredient you add to your Ladybug steam cleaner. Nor is it an attachment. TANCS® is a factory-installed internal component that modifies the crystal structure of the naturally occurring minerals in ordinary tap water to destroy microorganisms in a very short time.
“When a Ladybug steam cleaner with TANCS® is turned on, the water and minerals pass through the boiler, where the heat converts the water to superheated steam,” says Dunlop. “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.”
Ladybug steam cleaners with TANCS® such as the top-selling Ladybug Tekno 2350 steam cleaner have been scientifically proven to clean better than traditional disinfectants and qualify as disinfection devices for the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA Est. No. 82121-WA-01).
“When you unpack a Ladybug Tekno, you immediately notice the yellow sticker on one side that says TANCS® in bold letters,” says Dunlop.
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.”
Chuanwu Xi, Assistant Professor in the Department of Environmental Health at the University of Michigan, adds, "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.”
