Sanitizing and Disinfecting

At West Coast Extraction Systems we use Government regulated products to professionally sanitize and disinfect against even the toughest viruses. View details

Outer decks and housework cleaning

Vessel decks and sides are exposed to some of the harshest weather conditions; from scorching heat to rain and snow. We are able to clean and restore weathered surfaces by utilizing specialized tools and applying effective and environmentally sensitive methods.

Inner decks, passenger and crew spaces

Though vessel inner spaces are generally well protected from the effect of varied weather conditions the surfaces in these spaces deteriorate over time due to effects of human traffic.

Engineroom spaces

Engineroom surfaces get contaminated by an array of compounds such as lubricating oils and greases, diesel fuel and many other chemical agents and additives. This is an area where expertise of West Coast Extraction personnel shines. We are proficient in cleaning and preserving tank tops, bilge spaces and deck plates.

Galley and cafeteria spaces

Passenger and crew vessel food handling spaces are the spaces where customer and regulatory demands are very high. These areas require a very thorough and planned approach in order to deliver quality cleaning and preservation.

Air handling ducting and galley exhaust cleaning

HVAC systems are very specific and demanding spaces to clean and preserve. An inadequately cleaned ducting is not only unsightly and potentially allergenic but also fire hazardous. Our equipment can eliminate contaminants even on the most difficult to reach surfaces.
