I am quite sure that all decks on which people lived where scrubbed in one way or another for hygienic reasons, though bacteria etc. at the time of sailing ships were not recognised yet. For the same reason, sides and ceilings where white-washed. The lime solution has a very high pH and acts as a mild bactericide.
