    We had a request a while ago from a local motorhome repair bodyshop to view a motorhome that had been inside a building that had been on fire to see if we could possibly do something about the internal smoke damage, On viewing it took our breath away literally, the smell of smoke was overwhelming and every single surface was covered with a thick coat of soot, inside every cupboard every shelf :Eeek:
    So we had it in for a week while we did an initial clean before it went back for external heat damage to be repaired before we had it back at the end of last week for a final deep clean 10 hours of Aromatek odour neutralising treatment and the finishing touches.

    I would have mine done but being a self build I am worried it would fall to pieces with all the vigorous rubbing..:Rofl1:

    Not the best idea,the only primer we found that killed soot was a fresh cow pat mixed with water. Used to use this to coat soot chimney walls prior to plastering:Eeek:
