According to Advanced Vapor Technologies (AVT) principal Rick Hoverson: “At Advanced Vapor Technologies, we believe our products are making facilities healthier by redefining the gold standard for an environmentally-sound and scientifically-proven clean. We conduct our business with absolute integrity and we stand proudly behind every product we sell; thus, we are very proud to announce the availability of three scientifically-verified, peer-reviewed papers linked below.

N15: Peer-reviewed scientific paper, "Reduction in infection risk through treatment of microbially-contaminated surfaces with a novel, portable, saturated steam vapor disinfection system," published online in the American Journal of Infection Control. See

N16: Peer-reviewed scientific paper, "Reduction in the microbial load on high-touch surfaces in hospital rooms by treatment with a portable saturated steam vapor disinfection system." See

N17: Peer-reviewed scientific paper, "Biofilms on environmental surfaces: Evaluation of the disinfection efficacy of a novel steam vapor system." See

"The marketing hype that is pervasive in the cleaning industry makes it difficult for cleaning professionals to make sound judgments when evaluating products and technologies for their operations," said David Mudarri, PhD, former Senior Indoor Air Quality Scientist at the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. "From cleaning agents to high efficiency filters, vacuum cleaners, and duct cleaning technologies, product efficacy claims for cleaning, disinfection, indoor air quality and environmental friendliness abound; but many are without scientific validity. Product and service providers whose messages are built on a platform of accurate science-based information will have a clear advantage because their claims can be trusted. It is gratifying to see efforts that assist the cleaning sector in providing such scientifically sourced marketing messages."
