Rigorous safety training and empowerment of VIACS staff ensures continued productivity and hazard reduction at facilities and on vessels. Please contact VIACS to perform an evaluation of your particular needs. VIACS will investigate your facility/vessel and review your requirements to create a methodology and procedure suited to the particular application or areas to be serviced. Below is a list of the most common services VIACS performs for the shipyard and marine industry. You can click on Our Services at the top of the page to view all of the services we offer.

Boiler Fire Tube Cleaning
Fire tube cleaning is important to maintain high energy efficiency. Soot, rust and other buildup can severly degrade your boiler's efficiency and decrease its usable life not to mention, cause safety hazards. VIACS professionals will ensure your firetube boiler operates at peak efficiency for its maximum lifespan.

Chiller Tube Brushing
Chillers are often the single largest consumers of energy. The undoing of any chiller is the build-up of scale, biological growth, and corrosion inside chiller tubes. When this occurs, efficiencies are eroded and the chillers life cycle can be significantly reduced. Preventive maintenance, including cleaning the chiller tubes, will yield optimum efficiency of the chillers.

Coil Cleaning
A coil fouled with dirt and grime cannot supply proper heat transfer, resulting in greater energy consumption. Equipment operating with dirty coils uses more energy than those with clean coils. Additionally, a dirty systems cooling capacity is greatly reduced. Dirty coils increase operating pressure and temperature, which breaks down the compressors lubricant and can result in equipment failure. A failed compressor means no cooling and costly repair.

Drop Ceiling Cleaning
Ceilings are a trap for carbon monoxide, oils, grease, smoke, nicotine and carbon. They provide a breeding ground for bacteria and mold. These factors along with other unsanitary pollutants bond to amino and fatty acids to create the sick building syndrome. VIACS' cleaning system breaks down and dissolves these substances, returning your ceiling surface to a like-new condition. In addition to the ceiling tiles being deodorized and sanitized, they regain their acoustic, fire rating, and light reflection values. Your working and living environment is positively enhanced.

Ductwork Cleaning
If not properly installed, maintained, and operated, ductwork may become contaminated with particles of dust, pollen or other debris. If moisture is present, the potential for microbiological growth (e.g., mold) is increased and spores from such growth may be released into the living and/or working space. Some of these contaminants may cause allergic reactions or other symptoms in people if they are exposed to them.

Electrical Apparatus / Motor Cleaning
With our Cryogenic (Dry Ice) Blasting process, VIACS professionals can thoroughly and gently clean all kinds of electrical and electronic equipment. Dry Ice Blasting is nonabrasive and the materials used are nonconductive, making it the ideal choice for cleaning sensitive equipment like switchboards, circuit breakers, AC and DC motors, generators, and more.

Encapsulation & Coatings
VIACS specialises in offering environmental coating solutions through effective applications and technologies. These applications help in improving the safety of workplace, sustainability of natural resources, reduction of greenhouse gas emissions and energy efficiency. VIACS' encapsulation & coating services improve the comfort levels and extend the structural life of treated surfaces.

Fan Cleaning
One of the most fundamental ways to reduce fire risk is to eliminate built-up grease, debris, and other by-products that serve as fuel sources within ventilation and exhaust systems. With routine cleaning, equipment life is extended and most importantly, efficiency is increased. VIACS will clean your fans and exhaust systems to the metal and ensure these systems are in good working order.

Filter Rack Repairs
Damaged metal filter racking systems can often be repaired, avoiding the cost and inconvenience of a complete filter rack replacement.

Filter Replacement
VIACS professionals can replace just about any type of filter, including dust collection, HVAC and equipment filters. Regular filter replacement can help extend the useful life of your HVAC units and equipment, decrease energy costs, and reduce the risk of poor health caused by poor indoor air quality.

Fire Cleanup HVAC systems
A fire loss is very complex because of the unique behavior of smoke, which flows through plumbing cavities and HVAC systems. Hot embers of a fire will often damage the interior of the HVAC system and duct work. It is important to have an experienced restoration team on your side. Fast treatment will help reduce smoke and soot health hazards. VIACS is the most comprehensive resource for fire damage services, assessment, and recovery.

High Bay Cleaning (Beams, Ceilings, Walls, Equipment, etc.)
Buildings that require high bay cleaning usually have large and/or hard to clean surfaces. VIACS has the tools, the knowledge, and the trained professionals to ensure that your building is cleaned to perfection.

HVAC Unit Cleaning
One of the biggest contributors to indoor air quality is the HVAC system (heating, ventilation and air conditioning). The HVAC system "conditions" the air inside the building so that it is clean, odor-free and at a temperature and humidity that the majority of the buildings occupants find comfortable. HVAC maintenance plays a significant role in keeping the HVAC system running at peak efficiency.

Interstitial Space Cleaning
Interstitial space is that volume of space above the operating area's ceilings where the mechanical systems such as HVAC duct, electrical and piping are run. These mechanical systems often have valves, instruments and other items which require periodic cleaning. This space is also often used as a return air plenum warranting periodic cleaning to alleviate potential detrimental health effects on people.

Laboratory Equipment Cleaning
Regular cleaning and sanitizing is necessary to keep laboratory equipment and tools in operable condition and to maintain peak efficiency and safety.

Lead Abatement
As an industry expert in Lead Abatement, VIACS can deliver a wide array of lead abatement techniques in a variety of settings. Using our time-proven program, procedures and personnel, VIACS will safely and economically solve your lead abatement requirements in an environmentally conscious manner. Our experienced personnel use the latest proven systems and technology to assess the extent of your lead problem, devise an effective solution, and execute a program that brings you into conformance with federal and local regulations.

Mold Abatement
Molds can be found most anywhere, as long as moisture and oxygen are present. When excessive moisture accumulates in buildings or on building materials, mold growth will often occur, particularly if the moisture problem remains undiscovered or unaddressed. VIACS technicians can remediate your indoor mold problem by not only stopping the source of moisture but also removing the mold growth.

Stack Cleaning
From generator and equipment exhaust stacks to ship diesel and paint booth stacks, VIACS professionals can clean any type of exhaust stack system, keeping your equipment running efficiently and your air quality at its best.

Systems Evaluations
VIACS has an extensive inventory of cutting edge instrumentation to aid us in identifying and solving indoor air quality problems. Our team of technicians has the analytical skills to measure, document and troubleshoot indoor air quality problems in existing construction and to help prevent such problems in new construction.

Tank Cleaning
Tank cleaning can be a complicated process that requires years of expertise and training. VIACS maintains and cleans tanks for various industries and offers a full spectrum of tank cleaning services that are best suited to our customer's needs.

Testing & Reporting
Quality assurance is a vital part of any construction project. By documenting and reporting mechanical and related items that do not conform to the project specifications or other contract documents, VIACS serves as an agent to the owner for quality assurance. VIACS provides independent testing services with absolutely no affiliation with any manufacturer, vender, provider, contractor or installer of HVAC equipment or systems.
