TANCS®-Equipped Ladybug Steam Cleaners Are Lab Tested To Wipe Out The Highly Contagious Disease Of Dogs Without Toxic Chemicals
Lake Forest, Illinois (PRWEB) December 30, 2012
According to Antimicrobial Test Laboratories, vapor steam cleaners equipped with Ladybug’s proprietary patented Thermo Accelerated Nano Crystal Sanitation technology (called TANCS®) have been scientifically proven to eradicate the NDM-1 strain of Klebsiella pneumoniae bacteria and wipe out the drug-resistant MRSA infection with a level of performance that chemical disinfectants may never achieve. Today, 1-800-GO-VAPOR.com, a leading nationwide marketer of Ladybug steam cleaners, announced that further testing by Microbiotest and Nelson Laboratories has shown that TANCS®-equipped vapor steam cleaners are also a safe and cost-effective way to kill canine parvovirus.
Canine parvovirus (commonly called parvo) is a contagious virus affecting dogs caused by the canine parvovirus type 2 (CPV-2) virus. Parvo attacks rapidly reproducing cells, like those lining the gastrointestinal tract. The disease is spread from dog to dog by oral contact with infected feces. It can be especially severe in puppies. In untreated dogs, the mortality rate can go over 90 percent.
“Parvo is the most common infectious disease affecting dogs in America,” says V. K. Dunlop of 1-800-GO-VAPOR.com. “TANCS®-equipped steam cleaners offer a proven and effective method for killing parvo without the toxic side effects of chemicals.”
Recent testing conducted by Microbiotest and Nelson Laboratories demonstrated that a 7-second application of TANCS® resulted in a 5-7 log reduction of canine parvovirus.
Steam cleaners equipped with Ladybug’s proprietary patented TANCS® technology qualify as disinfection devices for the U. S. Environmental Protection Agency and proudly display a yellow sticker with the EPA number (EPA Est. No. 82121-WA-01) in bold letters. Using a simplified water-only protocol, TANCS®-equipped steam cleaners are suitable for cleaning, disinfecting and deodorizing many surfaces in healthcare settings such as hospitals, physician and dental offices, animal and outpatient clinics, laboratories, nursing homes and ambulances.
“When a steamer 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.”
TANCS® technology comes standard with the Ladybug Tekno 2350 steam vapor system and is available as an option with the Ladybug XL2300 steam vapor system and the Ladybug 2200S steam vapor system. All TANCS®-equipped systems achieve a greater kill rate in 3 seconds than a 20-minute exposure to bleach.
"Scientific studies have found that biofilms can be up to 1000 times more resistant to biocide inactivation than are suspended microbes,” said Chuanwu Xi, Assistant Professor in the Department of Environmental Health at the University of Michigan. “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.”
