The Vikan mop guide

What mop to use, where and why!

This guide will be of great help when you want to quickly check which of our mops works best for each individual task.
Of course, all the mops offer several advantages but, for the sake of simplicity, this guide focuses on just one or a few characteristics of each mop.
The aim is to make it easier for you to choose the right mop, and provide you with a short-cut to achieving the best possible cleaning result.

The high content of Vikan ultra microfibre insures that large quantities of dust and dirt particles can be removed by the mop with an extremely low level of friction.

Damp/Dry mops

Microfibre technology enables damp and dry cleaning now with the same powerful mop. Designed for use in hotels, hospitals and other facilities.

Wet mops

Wet mops are used in those areas where soaking is necessary to achieve the best possible results. Excess water must be dried up.
