(after deemed safe)

  1. Wear a respirator in heavy soot situations while cleaning
  2. Clean all carpets, window coverings, upholstered furniture and mattresses with steam or other appropriate equipment to clean, disinfect and deodorize. Wash, dust or otherwise clean all household items like picture frames and knickknack, etc.
  3. Call DryHome professional for more information
  1. Do NOT spray liquids on any metal surfaces affected by soot. Doing so could cause secondary damage to the metals and increase the chance for corrosion.
  2. Do NOT use any liquids to clean porous surfaces inside the home such as unpainted drywall, unfinished wood products and brick. Doing so could inset the soot into the surface making it more difficult for a professional to remove.
