Cleaning Walls and Hard Surfaces After A Fire

Does anyone have an idea for cleaning grease fire residue off of painted walls?

Cleaning Walls and Hard Surfaces After A Fire


My friend used TSP cleaner. She got it at a hardware store, and it comes in a box. We scrubbed the walls with it. She was a 4 pack a day smoker who did not open windows, and the walls were yellowed with tar and sticky. This stuff worked! Good luck. (11/30/2006)

I use "greased lightning" that you can purchase from your local dollar store or Walmart. I am a smoker and my small bathroom gets a build up of smoke and nicotine that needs cleaning twice a year. This product works well for me with no scrubbing needed. (12/02/2006)

We helped clean the walls of a smoke fire. The firemen told the people to use alcohol, as that's what they use to clean


walls, windows, etc. I believe you use full strength.

Good luck. (10/31/2007)
