Efficacy of Steam Vapor on Dust Mite Allergens

Dry Steam Significantly Reduces Allergen Exposure

House dust mite allergen exposure is a postulated risk factor for allergic sensitization, asthma development, and asthma morbidity; however, practical and effective methods to mitigate these allergens from low-income, urban home environments remain elusive. The purpose of this study was to assess the feasibility and effectiveness of physical interventions to mitigate house dust mite allergens in this setting.

The scientists found that dry steam cleaning resulted in a significant reduction in carpet HDM allergen that persisted for up to 8 weeks postintervention. These findings are consistent with the study by Colloff et al. (24), which showed that steam cleaning alone is an effective mitocidal treatment for carpets.

The Alternative to Toxic Germicides – TANCS® Steam Vapor

Kills the Germs – Not Your Health

AllergiesAccording to the CDC’s April 22, 2016 report, “Respiratory Symptoms and Skin Irritation Among Hospital Workers Using a New Disinfection Product”–a “nontoxic” and “one-step” cleaner, disinfectant, and deodorizer product consisting of hydrogen peroxide, peroxyacetic acid, and acetic acid–poses a possible health hazard to workers exposed to it, according to a NIOSH (National Institute for Occupational Health) investigation.

TANCS® Steam vapor cleaning can play a vital role in a healthcare infection prevention program.  Patented* water-only TANCS Steam vapor cleaning enables rapid disinfection, improves appearance, indoor hygiene, worker/patient safety and indoor air quality; while reducing cross-contamination, odor, expense, and exposure to chemicals.

How Safe Are Green Cleaning Products?

Not so safe as it turns out

Green Cleaning ChemicalsA growing number of Americans are seeking so-called green cleaners — products made with natural, nontoxic, and biodegradable ingredients. Some of these cleaners promise that they contain natural (instead of synthetic) agents, break down quickly in the environment, or pose less of a toxic threat to humans and ecosystems. But critics caution that just because the ingredients in green cleaners are plant-based or natural doesn‘t necessarily mean they‘re safe.

Steam Vapor the Clear Winner in Fighting Mold

Steam Vapor with TANCS® Superior

MoldA study funded by U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, evaluated three carpet cleaning methods and their ability to clean moldy carpet. The goal was to evaluate the growth of fungi and its removal over time using the selected methods: high-flow, hot-water extraction; hot water and detergent; and steam vapor. The results achieved with the three cleaning methods showed that Steam vapor with TANCS® technology emerged as the superior alternative to eliminating mold.
