Soot vs. Bathroom Tile
This bathroom was closest to a bedroom closet with electrical and clutter issues. Notice the extent of the soot on the 4" tiles around the entire bathroom. Soot clings to cool surfaces first and builds up quickly. In order to prevent yellowing, this is where fire remediation begins. The adjuster originally thought the bathroom would need to be gutted, but it was able to be restored. Homeowner and adjuster were thrilled with the results.
