One of the most challenging cleaning tasks in a house is cleaning after smoke damage. Whether it is accumulated smoke or soot from candles or a result of a kitchen fire, smoke damage manages to stick to kitchen surfaces like counters, walls and ceilings.
It is very difficult to remove. If you do manage to remove some of the visible soot stains, there remains a lingering and distinct odour of something just got burned. This could be very irritating to breathe.
Nevertheless, there are practical home remedies that can be used to repair smoke damage and remove the irritating odour associated with smoke.
Clear the area to be cleaned from appliances and other items. Open food that was exposed to soot should be disposed of. Clean other items affected with soot.
