House fire & paint prep

I’m thinking to use a degreaser on the soot with some agitation to prep the vinyl and brick for paint. I’ll probably just charge an extra $150 in addition to my normal rates. Any suggestions on particular chemicals, process or pricing?

I put a shout out to my chem guy to see what he thinks, he has several degreaser types. Personally I use hcs 400 degreaser @1:1 it will melt dull paint. I use it to melt fifth wheel grease and clean diesel motors. At 20% it works on removing soot/ smoke off exaust stacks very well. And at 15 % it’s a safe bug remover. Super hot stuff

Just use your EBC about 50-50


Lol. Take his advice, I wash stuff that rolls on rubber. Truck degreaser might be to strong for yall

If you don’t mind me asking, how much is a drum of EBC,I’ve seen it as high as $600

50/50 with agitation/scrub? Or application and rinse?

@Hotshot Two stepping that the way y’all clean big rigs is how I do it!! And if the vinyl melts on the brick we use one of these with a 25 degree tip. If it’s a insurance job good way to get ur foot in the door. We do alot of burn jobs. And if something inside we soda blast it.

I’ve seen something similar to that ,they use it to wet sand blast. I’m thinking of getting one ,there’s a decent market for it around my area. Neat set up @Coolunderpressure

Just did one about a month ago. Guy put his golf cart on charge under his carport caught on :fire: bottom was brick with vinyl above it. Get most of them in the winter time pays good!! Some complete burns just two step and sand blast the brick. Thanks

I haven’t had anything that bad, but I’ve had really good luck with F9 Double Eagle. I’ve tried EBC several times with no luck but the F9 has always worked well.

Saw your recommendation for 50/50 EBC.
