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) December 24, 2012
With the New Year just around the corner, a leading nationwide marketer of Ladybug steam vapor sanitization systems is encouraging households to approach 2013 with an “out with the old, in with the new” attitude by ditching their toxic household cleaners.
Today 1-800-GO-VAPOR.com announced extended telephone hours to help consumers understand the dangers of using conventional cleaning products, and to educate them on the benefits of cleaning with a chemical-free Ladybug steam cleaner.
“Ever wonder what’s in those cleaning products cheerfully lining grocery store shelves?” asks V. K. Dunlop of 1-800-GO-VAPOR.com. “You won’t learn a lot looking at the labels.”
That’s true 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 human health.
According to Dunlop, 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.”
Part of the problem is that a many people looking to 'go green' have no idea where to start.
To help shoppers make the switch in 2013 to steam, 1-800-GO-VAPOR.com has extended its telephone hours. Shoppers can reach a live sales representative 7 days a week from 7:00 a.m. to 11:00 p.m. CST.
When equipped with Ladybug’s optional TANCS® technology, the Ladybug 2200S vapor steam cleaner and the popular Ladybug XL2300 vapor steam cleaner qualify as disinfection devices for the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA Est. No. 82121-WA-01).
“A Ladybug steam cleaner is a New Year must-have waiting for you online and in our showroom,” says Dunlop. “When you purchase a TANCS®-equipped model, you immediately notice the yellow sticker with the EPA number proudly displayed in bold letters."
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.”
