Cleaning Up After a Wildfire

To remove soot and smoke from walls, furniture and floors, use a mild soap or detergent or mix together 4 to 6 tbsp. tri-sodium phosphate and 1 cup household cleaner or chlorine bleach to every gallon of warm water. Wear rubber gloves. Be sure to rinse surfaces with clear warm water and dry thoroughly.

​

DO NOT USE LEAF BLOWERS to clean up ash! Sweep gently with a push broom, then mop with a damp cloth or hose lightly with water.  Be sure. to protect storm drains from ash and any cleaning agents used.
