I would put some sort of lenolium *sp? on top of it, that way it would be much easier to clean, as concrete is very porous, even when painted, and who knows what type of pets stains could be showing up on it.
We've purchased my uncles home which has some firedamage down stairs. The only damage to the main level is soot from the fire, but we hear its going to be a pain to clean. What I basically would love to know, from anyone who may have done this before, is how on earth to clean it. The bottom level has 2 bedrooms, full bath, walk in closet, laundry room, and garage. Most of the bedrooms downstairs will be completly gutted and start from scratch. Other than the door frame at the stars, the upstrais has no fire damage other than some pretty thick soot. The upstairs is 2 bedrooms, kitchen, master bath, living room, and dining room. I beleive the entire house is about 3,000 square feet.
We got it for a steal and simply could not pass it up as it is in on a corner lot, a historical part of our town surounded by big beautiful old houses.
The walls are mostly plaster and we need to know the best way to clean them, the appliance, bathroom fixtures, ceelings, and the wall to wall hardwood floors.
