Using Vikan cleaning tools

To make sure you get the most out of your Vikan cleaning tools, be sure to read any instructions and other documentation that came with the tool.

The Vikan cleaning tools you’ve selected should be part of an overall validated cleaning programme, developed on-site to address your specific cleaning challenges and based on a concrete risk assessment.

The cleaning programme should specify:

  • The equipment and chemicals to use
  • How they should be used
  • How often they should be used
  • Who is responsible for using them
  • What the desired results should be
  • Which methods should be used to assess these results
  • Actions to be taken if anything doesn’t go as planned

The way you conduct your cleaning – including the tools and methods you use – impacts the safety and quality of your final product. When cleaning, it’s important to minimise any risk of cross-contamination from dirty to clean areas and to any open food product.

Using high-pressure hoses and compressed air can result in significant spread of contamination – whereas the use of high-quality manual cleaning tools and vacuum cleaners can help minimise it.

To get the results you need, it’s essential to comply with any instructions provided by Vikan, as well as following your company’s specific cleaning programme.
