Soot Cleaning with Speedy White
Soot is made up from the carbon particles in smoke. It is a by product of fire and soot can accumulate on fireplace glass and other places throughout your home. The soot particles are so fine that they can get into microscopic cracks on the surface of an object.
Speedy White is a spray-on solution that attacks soot particles. After applying Speedy White to an unheated surface, let it stand for 10-15 seconds and then remove soot with ease from your stove, fireplace and glass fireplace doors. After using Speedy White, always remove all residue by washing the glass with water or conventional window cleaner spray. Any remaining residue will stain the glass when it is heated.
How can you avoid soot buildup?
You can keep soot and creosote from building up by using Speedy White regularly on fireplaces including your glass doors, hearth, brick and chimney. Speedy White will clean your glass doors, hearth, brick and chimney without scratching, staining or removing the original luster of your fireplace.
There are three primary reasons to clean soot from affected surfaces…your family’s health, their safety, and the aesthetic appeal of the gleaming results from Speedy White.
- Soot is primarily composed of unburned carbon particles but may also contain ash. Soot has a soft texture and will be black or brown in color. The flammability of soot will depend on the concentration of soot and ash. Soot, since it is made of carbon, is combustible. Ash is noncombustible.
- Carbon monoxide poisoning can occur is there is not enough air ventilation.
- Gas/propane refrigerators, clothes dryers, hot water heaters and stoves have burners which could malfunction due to soot buildup
- After using Speedy White once, you’ll never be able to enjoy the fire through blackened glass doors again!
“After using Speedy White on the fireplace I set off throughout the house, spray bottle in hand. I dare you to compare the filter on my stove exhaust hood to a brand new one and tell them apart. The shower, the garage, the BBQ, I’ve become a maniac in looking for things to try it on. Thank you!”
