Once the fire is extinguished, soot will begin to settle on everything, including furniture, clothing, walls, and any other exposed surface. Soot that covers porous surfaces will cause more damage and be more difficult to clean because such surfaces will absorb the soot leaving discoloration. However, with prompt cleaning efforts, experienced technicians can clear other surfaces of soot and prevent damage and discoloration.
