Unique products for unique challenges
Delivering cleaner facilities at a lower cost and ensuring a safe working environment is a basic requirement of all local authroity cleaning programmes. Spotlessly clean windows, floors and surfaces will enhance the user and visitor experience of a public facility, while food preparation areas require a hygienically clean environment to prevent cross contamination from microbes or ingredients.
The Vikan microfibre-based solution uses a simple, single work process to deliver high levels of productivity and consistent quality of cleaning. As well as being a HACCP requirement, implementing our systematic cleaning and sanitizing procedures will also increase the janitorial team's professional status and improve employee health.
Daily cleaning of large surface areas exerts a huge demand on staff and their equipment, but Vikan's system ensures operators can spend their time effectively. Each self-contained trolley is equipped with specially selected, pre-prepared washable mops and cloths that can be deployed for use on a specific task or in a designated area.
The pre-prepared damp mops are more efficient at cleaning soiled areas than wet mops and remove the need to lift heavy buckets of water, while the dry cloths can be used with a spray of water. As well as reducing the volumes of water required and removing the need for chemicals, which makes them better for the environment, microfibres are also safer as they leave surfaces dry and eliminate the damp areas where microbes breed.
The ready-to-use tools are ergonomically designed to improve productivity in the workplace, and also to reduce repetitive strain injuries to muscles and joints, which in turn reduces rates of absenteeism and compensation claims by the janitorial team. Our tools are designed to be long lasting and, as they require much lower volumes of water and no detergents, our system is cheaper to operate too.
Consistency in cleaning quality
Vikan's microfibre mops and cloths have been proven to remove 99.9% of all microbes, and significantly higher levels of dust and dirt from surfaces than traditional cleaning. Surfaces also retain their sheen for longer, and there is no build up of biofilm or the sticky chemical residue on which microbes thrive in hard to reach areas, such as behind sanitary ware.
Not only is previously mopped up dirt and bacteria trapped in the fibres, but our simple click system allows the operator to detach a used mop head without ever touching it, reducing the risk of contaminating other surfaces. Our colour coding systems lower the risk of cross contamination yet further as mops and cloths used in food preparation areas are kept visibly separate from those used in corridors, offices and classrooms or in washing and toilet areas.
