I have exposed red brick in my 1830 home that has black soot on it from a house fire.
Does anyone know how i can get this brick clean.
I know that sand blasting will work but i was hoping for another way to do this. Let me meantion that it is "on sight" brick and over 170 years old. Much of it is pumpkin brick and the pointing is pretty dry and crumbly. I do plan on re-pointing it but not sure if i should before or after cleaning the brick.
Also, i think that steam or pressure cleaning is out because i just cannot expose the floors and other wood in this building to that water.
