Wall Cleanup

Most wall surfaces, whether painted drywall, wallpaper, or brick, are porous and prime places for soot to cling. Tiny soot particles penetrate deep into porous wall and ceiling surfaces, causing stains and lingering odors if not cleaned promptly.

In cases of severe damage, it may be necessary to repaint or remove and reinstall the wallpaper.

Some surfaces, particularly types of wallpaper, can only be cleaned with dry cleaning methods. Other surfaces may tolerate and respond well to wet cleaning procedures. But before performing any wet cleaning methods, always test the cleaning solution on a small inconspicuous area of the wall, such as behind a switch plate.
