Dirty carriage house ceilings

Just as a point of reference, here's the dirt on the ceiling of the carriage house. The thumbnail here doesn't really show much, so click through for a higher-resolution version. When I first saw this, I thought it was mold. Imagine my relief to find it was a mixture of food and cigarette smoke. The paint is a super-durable double coat of enamel, so the dirt comes off easily with a bleachy mop and a little scrubbing, but I find it surprisingly tiring to hold the mop up for that long.

Anyway, nearly caught up with Job #1, after which I will be catching up with Job #2, after which, the theory is, I will be back to more frequent House work. I was cleaning here in the carriage house until I ran out of bleach. But yesterday, I bought more bleach, so ... progress. Yes.

  1. Sounds like the ceiling in the prep room at work -- no cigarette smoke, but some stains that were either splatters from the meat grinder, or ketchup. And the deck brush on a broom handle wasn't getting it, so I would up standing on a table scrubbing it with a green scrubby.

    Glad it wasn't mold!
