Learn why Advap steam cleaners are better

We’re on a mission

To educate the world that steam vapor cleans and disinfects better and faster than most chemicals

Don’t be fooled by improper claims of disinfection

At Advap we believe people should live happy, healthy lives. Fueled by a frustration that traditional cleaning products are loaded with chemicals tied to cancer risk, we’ve spent 25 years pioneering steam vapor systems and continually improving them. Our proprietary Thermal Accelerated Nano Crystal Sanitation (TANCS®) technology is a factory-installed internal component designed to kill microscopic organic matter such as germs, bacteria, and viruses in mere seconds. In fact, in a study published in the American Journal of Infection Control, researchers in the School of Environmental Health at the University of Michigan found that TANCS®-equipped steam vapor systems achieve a greater kill rate in 3 seconds than a 20-minute exposure to bleach. As with anything that starts trending, Advap-inspired lookalike products with no scientific verification, lab testing, or peer review to back their claims are popping up over the web in the pandemic era. Before you consider buying these products, it’s important you understand what claims the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) does and does not allow. Disinfection devices are subject to rigorous EPA testing, and an establishment is assigned a unique number only if their products pass. Advap’s number is “EPA Est. No. 8121-WA-01” and—by law—it must appear on each steam vapor system we offer for sale. Products without an EPA establishment number are, at best, sanitizer devices. Although sanitize and disinfect are often used interchangeably, there is a significant difference between the two.

Designed to perform and built to last

Continuous refill technology

Hard impact-resistant shell

TANCS® technology

Disinfect in 7 seconds or less

Our proprietary technology encourages nano crystals to form from dissolved minerals within tap water. This allows faster penetration of lethal moist heat, destroying the germs, viruses, and spores contaminating the surface you want to clean and disinfect.

Peer reviewed

We take pride in offering the highest level of validated evidence. Numerous peer-reviewed studies published in respected scientific journals have demonstrated the efficacy of steam vapor with TANCS® and our devices are regulated by the EPA (EPA Est. No. 82121-WA-01). 

Anti-scale technology

By lowering the zeta potential and changing the crystalline structure of the minerals in tap water, they're prevented from sticking to surfaces. No scale. No worries.
