Markets ‘Green’ Cleaning Steam Cleaners Nationwide That May Help Prevent Breast Cancer In Women And Young Children
Online PR News – 24-April-2012 – Lake Forest/Illinois – 1-800-GO-VAPOR.com, a leading nationwide marketer of vapor steam cleaners, announced today that the company is offering a special promotion to encourage consumers to ditch their toxic household cleaning supplies this spring.
Chemicals found in many household cleaning products may be contributing to the rise in breast cancer in the U.S. according to doctors and environmental scientists.
According to The New York Times, the chances that a 50 year-old white woman will develop breast cancer has increased from 1% in 1975 to 12% today.
1-800-GO-VAPOR.com hopes to encourage consumers to ditch their toxic cleaning supplies by making Ladybug steam cleaners more affordable.
“Women who regularly use conventional household cleaners and air fresheners face double the risk of developing breast cancer versus those who never use the products,” says V.K. Dunlop, 1-800-GO-VAPOR.com vice president. “That fresh smell American’s love may also be advancing cases of breast cancer in young children.”
Ladybug steam cleaners are scientifically proven to disinfect better and faster than traditional disinfectants—without chemicals.
When equipped with Ladybug’s proprietary patented TANCS® (Thermo Accelerated Nano Crystal Sanitation) technology, Ladybug steam cleaners like the popular Ladybug Tekno 2350 steam cleaner allow consumers 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. Steam cleaners equipped with TANCS® qualify as a disinfection device for the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
To make Ladybug steam cleaners more affordable, for a limited time 1-800-GO-VAPOR.com is including a free accessory set worth $30 with each Ladybug order.
“The use of the term ‘disinfectant’ is regulated by the EPA,” says Dunlop. “TANCS®-equipped steam cleaners display an EPA Establishment Number (EPA Est. No. 82121-WA-01) right on the device using a yellow label.”
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.”
