Ladybug XL 2300 Steam Cleaner Review

[myrpeditors]

Using the Ladybug XL2300 is an exercise in simplicity. It converts ordinary tap water into dry steam vapor in minutes which cuts through dirt, grease, grime, and chemical residues, leaving behind surfaces that look, feel, and smell clean. The Ladybug XL2300 canister will clean nearly any heat tolerant surface or material. With the optional Thermal Accelerated Nano Crystal Sanitation (TANCS®) system installed, the XL 2300 qualifies as a U.S. EPA Disinfection Device that cleans, sanitizes, and disinfects without the use of toxic chemicals, a major benefit for individuals with chemical sensitivities. TANCS works by converting the minerals in ordinary tap water into nano crystals that compromise the cell membranes of microorganisms, making them more vulnerable to the lethal temperatures of dry steam vapor. The TANCS system also prevents mineral build up inside the boiler, extending the life of the steam cleaner. Because of this, Advanced Vapor Technologies will add an additional 5 years to the boiler warranty on all TANCS equipped Ladybugs.

To ensure durability and a long service life, the boiler is made from 1.5mm thick, SS 304 stainless steel. SS304 provides excellent corrosion resistance and durability. Internal connections are made of copper, brass, and silver coated steel, further deterring corrosion and increasing longevity. The electronics are sealed against any possible moisture issues.

Lady bug vapor steam cleaners use a two tank, continuous fill system that provides uninterrupted dry steam vapor. The steam cleaner draws fresh water into the boiler from a reservoir on demand. As the fresh water is used, a “low water” light and audible warning are emitted, simply add more water to the reservoir and keep working.

The benefits of continuous fill are significant, both in convenience and time savings. During our tests, it was easy to go through multiple tanks of water just doing normal household tasks. The other single tank machines (boiler only) we tested, required time to cool down before we could refill them, then we waited some more while they reheated and were again ready to use. All told, the single tank machines added several hours to our cleaning regimen. You can expect to experience the same.

An excellent array of tools and accessories come as standard equipment with the Ladybug, 13 pieces in all. More accessories are available, such as additional extension wands and a wider selection of specialty brushes, etc., there is even a steam iron for deodorizing and pressing clothing, draperies, and fabrics. Wand and tool connections come with an auto locking feature that prevents separation of components during use.

Controls and operation are simple and straight forward. Other than adding water and plugging the Ladybug in, there is an on/off switch located on the vapor steamer canister itself, and a flow control on the handle which controls the amount of steam vapor being applied to the cleaning surface. And finally, a pressure gauge on the boiler, allowing the user to monitor working pressure and pause, if necessary during heavy use, to allow the boiler to recover. Speaking of recovery time, once the Ladybug steam cleaner is at operating temperature and being used under heavy conditions, the XL 2300 will recover from minimum steam vapor pressure to maximum in under 60 seconds, the fastest recovery time of any machine we’ve tested.

There are more uses for a Ladybug dry vapor steam cleaner than we can list. Suffice it to say that the Ladybug’s uses are only limited by your imagination. The more you use the Ladybug, the more uses you’ll find for it. The Ladybug comes with a DVD that covers general operation and a few of the many uses and environments that the XL 2300 is ideal for, from the kitchen to the bathroom, from the garage to the patio and deck.

Final Thoughts

First off, we’d like to thank Advanced Vapor Technologies for sending us a unit for review and always being available to answer any questions we had. We deal with a lot of product manufacturers and AVT has been one of the best companies to deal with … 5 stars!

We’d also like to thank Gary Rydel, owner of Rydel’s Healthy Home, for sharing his steam cleaner knowledge and expertise with us. Rydel’s Healthy Home has been selling floor care products since 1954. They are located in Lodi, CA and ship nationwide. They are knowledgeable, courteous, and available to answer any questions one could have about Ladybug vapor steam cleaners.

Now to the XL2300. Few people have the opportunity, as we did, to try out several vapor steam cleaners side-by-side to see for themselves just how different one machine is from another. To say we were impressed by the XL 2300’s performance would be an understatement. It was easy to see why consumers rave about Ladybugs and consistently rate them among the highest in quality and satisfaction.

Beyond the fact that the XL2300 is a workhorse and did everything we asked of it without complaint, the features that we liked the most were the uninterrupted operation provided by the continuous fill tank system and the onboard tool storage. Not having to wait on the system to reheat after a refill, nor wasting time tracking down accessories was invaluable to completing cleaning tasks quickly and easily.

The only “issues” we could come up with on the XL2300 are its price (it’s expensive, but well worth it) and that a trolley to hold the hose and wand would be nice (much like the Tekno 2350’s optional trolley).

Ladybug steam cleaners cost more than a lot of other steamers, but there’s a reason for that. When it comes to vapor steam cleaners, you definitely get what you pay for. If you want quality components, abundant features, versatility, durability, excellent customer service – both before and after the purchase, a good warranty, etc., the machine is going to cost more … pure and simple.

Ladybugs are available online at Amazon.com, along with many Ladybug steam cleaner parts and accessories.

Models in the Ladybug XL2300 Steam Cleaner Series include: XL 2300 and XLT 2300 with TANCS.

Consumer Reviews of the Ladybug XL 2300 Steam Cleaner

Comments

  1. I run a carpet & mattress sanitising business and I am always looking for new ideas to promote my business. I currently do not work with steam at all but I get the feeling that some of my clients would prefer the option. I guess my only concern is how wet would a mattress be after an application with your Ladybug XL 2300 Steam Cleaner. Would my clients be left with mattresses and pillows that can’t be used on the same day?

    • Steve,

      Dry vapor steam cleaning would be an excellent addition to your business, from both a customer service and marketing perspective. Steam is eco-friendly and highly effective at cleaning, sanitizing, and disinfecting. It also kills odors, bed bugs, dust mites, and other pests.

      A good quality dry vapor steam cleaner like the XL2300 or US Steam ES1900 do not leave things like mattresses, bedding, carpeting, or upholstery excessively wet. In our experience, these items are completely dry and ready to use within a few hours, depending on the environment. Locations with high humidity will take the longest of course, but still usually only 2-4 hours at most.

      I would suggest you consider a “commercial” quality steam cleaner for your business. While we like the XL 2300, the US Steam / Eurosteam machines are made for demanding business environments and have heavy-duty components and advanced features you won’t find on the Ladybug. And the price is comparable between the two, at least here in the U.S.
