Steam Cleaners Allow Mineral Nano-crystals to Eradicate Biofilms of Microorganisms and Bacteria

According to the Integrated Benefits Institute, people exposed to cleaning chemicals are susceptible to occupational illness and injury. In such a scenario, steam cleaners with Non-toxic TANCS have been scientifically tested to offer better options.

Steam cleaners featuring Ladybug’s Thermo Accelerated Nano Crystal Sanitation technology, TANCS, are disinfection solutions suitable for the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. The steam clearers use only water and can clean sanitize and deodorize multiple surfaces in healthcare facilities such as hospitals, clinics, animal and outpatient departments, laboratories, nursing homes and ambulances.

The Antimicrobial Test Laboratories have recently lab-tested to show rapid elimination of the NDM-1 species of Klebsiella pneumoniae bacteria with the TANCS-fortified steam cleaners, according to V. K. Dunlop of 1-800-GO-VAPOR.com in Chicago. Benjamin Tanner, president of Antimicrobial Test Laboratories, said that the steam vapor products could destroy the NDM-1 Klebsiella on a hard surface in two seconds. The laboratory had earlier shown that the steam cleaners could destroy the MRSA superbug in seconds.

When a heater equipped with TANCS is switched on, the water and minerals flow through the boiler. The heat changes the water into super hot steam. But before the steam can leave the boiler, the mineral gets disintegrated into nanostructures that are carried by the steam on the surface being cleaned. This causes microorganisms and bacteria existing on the surface to be destroyed, at the same time, preventing further reproduction of the bacteria as the technique does not allow biofilms to bind to the surface.

The technology is available with the Ladybug Tekno 2350 steam cleaner and as an alternative with the Ladybug XL2300 steam cleaner, or the Ladybug XLT2300 steam cleaner, and the Ladybug 2200S steam cleaner.
