Chemical-Free Steam Cleaners Could Help Reduce Cancer Risk to Children, Distributor Announces

Non-Toxic, TANCS®-Equipped Systems Achieve A Greater Kill Rate In Three Seconds Than A 20-Minute Exposure To Bleach

Online PR News – 22-February-2012 – – Incidences of childhood cancer are increasing across America, and researchers believe toxic chemicals are partly to blame.

Cancer in U.S. children has increased since 1975, while exposure to toxic chemicals has also intensified, warns the Safer Chemicals, Healthy Families coalition. Last year, a report from the President’s Cancer Panel declared that Americans are ‘bombarded’ with cancer-causing chemicals.

Concerned, a leading nationwide marketer of Ladybug steam cleaners is trying to change the way people clean.

“Who of us doesn’t know someone with cancer?” asks V.K. Dunlop, vice president of “Or a parent with a child diagnosed with autism? There is credible scientific evidence linking these health problems and others like heart disease and diabetes to some of the 82,000 chemicals available for use in the U.S., only 200 of which have been required to be tested for safety.”

Many cleaning products at the supermarket contain chemicals that may cause cancer. To encourage families to switch to natural products and systems that keep homes clean and fresh smelling without the toxic side effects, for a limited time Chicago-area is shipping a free accessory set worth $30 with each Ladybug Tekno 2350 steam cleaner order.

Vapor steam cleaners armed with Ladybug’s proprietary patented TANCS® technology not only clean, disinfect and deodorize with ordinary tap water—they do a better job that traditional disinfectants,” says Dunlop.

"Scientific studies have found that biofilms can be up to 1000 times more resistant to biocide inactivation than are suspended microbes,” says 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.”

When armed with TANCS®, steam cleaners like the popular Tekno allow families to effortlessly use proprietary water treatment with nano crystals to destroy microorganisms, eliminate biofilms, kill bacteria and disinfect almost any surface far better and quicker than most chemical disinfectants. TANCS®-equipped steam cleaners qualify as disinfection devices for the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
