Galley hood exhaust ventilation systems undergo constant usage especially on yachts that have live aboard crews. Smoke and steam from cooking are exhausted from the galley hood through intricate ducting that zigs and zags over, up and out of the vessel. Overtime cooking grease builds up on the hood, duct interior and extraction fan surfaces. If it gets too long between cleanings, cooking grease can even leak out of the metal duct joints and through headliners of the vessel. Besides the mess, this is a potential fire hazard. Through regular cleaning intervals, you can be assured you do not have either of the two issues.
Coastal will work with you to identify the type of extraction system you have, the route of the ducting and come up with a cleaning plan. Some sections may be able to be high pressure steam cleaned while others may only e suitable for detailed hand cleaning. A cleaning certificate will be provided for vessel records which will allow you to keep track of when the service was completed last and also be on hand to show your Lloyds or ABS inspector what was and when it was completed. Once you are in our system, Coastal can also notify you when an inspection or service is due.
Coastal only specializes in yacht duct cleaning. Beware of land-based companies who may be under-insured and not familiar with navigating their way through vessel duct systems.
