soot from grease fire, errr


Hello everyone, had a grease fire about a week and a half ago, rediculous amount of soot everywhere. Have already cleaned walls with Tsp and alot of elbow grease and rinsed multiple times,The dry sponges for soot arrived today for my ceiling. First time dealing with aftermath of fire, so any suggestions, advice, or opinions are welcomed and appreciated.thanks in advance . Plan is to shopvac then drysponge the cealing best I can, vac again then use shellac based bin to seal ceiling and the two spots on the wall up high, bullseye123plus for all the walls, got all the sealer and primer and cabinets today. Ill pick the paint up later in week. Am i on the right path
.

Definitely on the right path. I have done insurance claims for homeowner's in the same boat as you.......they had professional cleaning services come in to do the work of removing as much soot as possible. As you are finding out, there's no way to get it all so BIN or Cover Stain are your friends. The 1-2-3 will not be as effective as BIN in covering the soot so you may want to consider using BIN or CoverStain on the walls. CoverStain is less expensive than the BIN.

Thank you , while I'm out pickin up other material ill swap that 123 out for some more bin and coverstain, whole I was waiting on the sponges I started on the walls, in a couple spots accidentally over sprayed into the ceiling and it immediatly obsorbed it leaving a dark stain, how do I tackle that one? I really appreciate your help and time
