The following instructions are for the removal of soot from surfaces that are not harmed by water; this includes countertops, flooring, and walls. It is important to identify how old the fire damage is prior to cleaning. If the damage is only a few days old, it can be cleaned and saved. However, if the fire damage is five or more days old, many items can be severely damaged beyond saving.
Formica, plastics, ceiling tiles, etc. can be difficult to restore.
The item(s) that burned also relate to how well materials can be cleaned.
