What Not to Do Cleaning a Kitchen Fire
This picture shows the result of the homeowner attempting to clean soot off a kitchen ceiling following a protein fire by using a wet rag and a household cleaning product. Unfortunately, all this did was embed the soot into the sheet rock causing staining. The proper cleaning technique for cleaning a protein fire is to first use a chemical dry sponge. The sponge allows for a proper cleaning before we seal and paint.
