Precautionary measures for cleaning soot damage
Cleaning soot involves a series of steps starting with cleaning the stains, vacuuming the soot, using different types of cleaning products, etc. Here are some of the precautions that you must employ while cleaning soot:
- Ash from soot is extremely harmful when inhaled or when it comes in contact with your skin. Make sure you wear rubber gloves, a full-sleeved t-shirt, and pant while cleaning soot.
- Inhaling the soot ash can cause severe lung infections and illnesses. Make sure you wear a dust mask or a bandana to cover your nose and mouth when cleaning the soot
- The cleaning solutions that you use for soot damage can be very powerful and equally harmful like the soot ash when inhaled. Make sure you open up all the windows and doors while you work on cleaning the damage. If possible, take out the items with soot and clean them outdoors.
Cleaning soot is a considerable undertaking, and we recommend you hire a professional to get the job done. An experienced professional can complete the cleaning in no time with ease using the most effective cleaning products. Call us today to book a soot damage clean-up.
Cleaning up after a fire
Soot and smoke after a fire can affect your walls, furniture, floors, and other home appliances. You can clean these areas by mixing 5 tbsp. of tri-sodium phosphate, 1 cup of chlorine bleach and a gallon of warm water in a bucket. Use this solution in the damaged areas to clean the soot. However, it takes professional cleaning services to eliminate soot, smoke, and other debris more efficiently.
