1. Which kind of dirt can be removed?
Whether it is dust, sand or dried, sticky food on the floor or other surfaces, there is a Vikan mop, which ensures effective removal and cleaning.
2. How long is the life of the Vikan tools?
In the development of the Vikan microfibre concept tools, great attention was paid to their durability. Furthermore, numerous corporate and independent tests have been performed to ensure that the tools can withstand continuous use and achieve a very long life.
3. What is the expected lifespan of Vikan's textiles?
For most Vikan mops and cloths a guarantee of 500 application and washing cycles is granted. This guarantee exceeds the usual washing guarantee because we guarantee that the mops can be used and washed at least 500 times.
4. How much liquid is to be used for the preparation of the mops?
Depending on the surface of the floor (if porous surface a little more - coated surface a little less) between 110 to 150 ml per mop.
5. Which microfibres are used?
Vikan uses a microfiber 0.27 d-tex/denier, which is the best material to use on the surface to be cleaned (even for high-quality surfaces). The microfibres of Vikan have unique cleaning properties. The material acts as a magnet for dust, which is absorbed into the material and held there. This is due to the capillary effect exerted when mops are used damp and the static electricity effect when used dry.
6. Why should we clean in an ergonomically correct manner?
- An ergonomically correct working position reduces strain on muscles and joints.
- Performing the cleaning tasks in a simpler way further reduces strain on the body.
- Provides more well-being in the workplace.

There is no need for wringing or rinsing, more of mop head in contact with floor, etc
10. What are the advantages of a damp pre-prepared system over wet mopping?
With damp mopping, you overcome the problems associated with recycling of dirt, aquaplaning, slip and trip risk, repetitive strain, etc
