    I have black soot on my wall above the convectors in my 2 flat apartment building with the top floor the worst. It appears to come from the convectors because they have a litte black soot on them where the heat comes from the covers.

There is black soot on my walls and ceilings above my baseboard heaters. Is there a solution or a reason as to why this is happening? Is there a part that needs replacing? We are desperate for a solution....

In my experience soot in the house is (almost) always caused by the burning of candles. Get a CO detector if you don't already have one! You see the soot at the heaters because of the air flow they cause. There is nothing in a baseboard unit that could cause soot. Just water.
