Soot Removal from Fireplace

When SERVPRO of South Austin is called out to remove soot from a fireplace we follow a process to make sure the job is done properly.

We use our #355 Stone and Porcelain Cleaner, #351 Wall and All Surface Cleaner, 3 buckets, stiff-bristled brushes and the appropriate Personal Protective Equipment.

  1. First step is to fill the buckets with water and cleaning solutions.
  2. We start cleaning with a brush and the Stone and Porcelain cleaner which is an acidic cleaning solution. Let it sit for 5-10 minutes
  3. Then the Wall and Surface cleaner is brushed in, which is the neutralizer for the first solution. Let sit for 5 minutes.
  4. Last step is hot water brushed over all to rinse the solutions off.
