Are Ladybug Products Effective Against SARS-CoV-2?
There are no available test strains of SARS-CoV-2, the cause of COVID-19. That said, products that have been tested and proven effective on either a harder-to-kill virus, such as canine parvovirus, or a similar human coronavirus, such as coronavirus 229E, are expected to be effective according to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Our steam vapor systems equipped with TANCS® (EPA Est. No. 82121-WA-01) satisfy both requirements:
- Human coronavirus 229E (99.94% reduction in 3 seconds)
- Harder-to-kill viruses, such as canine parvovirus (99.99% reduction in 7 seconds)
It is important to pay attention to disinfection times because most people don’t disinfect properly. A disinfectant needs to remain on a surface, often for several minutes, before it dries or is wiped off. In contrast, our TANCS®-equipped steam vapor systems are proven in peer-review format to disinfect in 7 seconds or less.
Provides the full Ladybug experience
The Ladybug Tekno 2350 was designed to give you nothing less than the full Ladybug experience. So when Ladybug engineers thought about which features to make standard, there was only one answer: all of them. The Tekno has a pressure gauge for monitoring steam levels, a low water indicator light, an LCD digital information display, and a wooden handle that makes it easy to pick up and hold. In addition, the Tekno comes standard with innovation you won’t find anywhere else—Ladybug’s proprietary patented TANCS® technology, which qualifies the Tekno as a disinfection device for the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. And while it packs 1700 watts of power, it still weighs just 13 pounds. Which is why the Tekno isn’t just enormously capable, it’s enormously portable, too.
The new definition of clean
Make barbecue grates look brand new. Remove crayon stains off the wallpaper. Spot clean area rugs. Or make kitchen appliances and bathroom fixtures sparkle like never before. For anything and everything you clean, there’s an attachment perfectly designed for the Tekno. They look like they are commercial grade—because they are commercial grade. With the Tekno’s incredibly hot tip temperature and pressure up to 80 psi, these attachments are ready for just about anything. You can kill dust mites and bed bugs, remove allergens, kill bacteria, and remove mold and mildew. Connect the rectangular floor bush and clean floors of all types. You can even use it in hospitals, physician and dental offices, veterinary and outpatient clinics, schools, laboratories, nursing homes, and ambulances. That’s because TANCS®-equipped steam cleaners like the Tekno are scientifically proven to achieve a level of performance that common chemical disinfectants, many of which are linked to cancer and birth defects, may never achieve.
It won’t call it a day until you do
The Ladybug Tekno is the most advanced and most versatile Ladybug there is. It even monitors its own water level, so you don’t have to. That’s because it has two tanks—and they work together. A pump inside the Tekno was designed to feed water to the boiler from a non-pressurized reservoir—automatically. When the low water indicator light comes on, you just add water to the reservoir, which takes just a few seconds. But even when the reservoir is empty, the boiler still has superheated vapor steam in it. So after you refill the reservoir, the Tekno is ready to go right away. Meaning whether you were cleaning the shower, sanitizing children’s toys, or deodorizing pet areas, you can pick up right where you left off. You don’t have to think about anything other than what you’re going to clean next. Which makes the tasks you do every day even easier.
