I can give you some information about the cleaning process used by fire damage cleaning companies, as we (my employer) sell these specialised cleaners to such companies. To clean soot from electronics, a water based detergent can be used. It also removes oxidations and corrosions. It is usually applied in an ultrasonics equipment. To dry the device, the device is dipped into a special hydrocarbon solution, the water is repelled and only the hydrocarbon remains. This can be dried much easier than water and since it is electrically non conductive, and not corrosive, a little rest remaining does no harm. To clean metal surfaces that are corroded by HCl gas (produced by combustion of PVC material) there are other cleaners, like alkaline derusters, also applied in dip baths or ultrasonic baths (heated). This cleaning agent is quite aggresive and dangerous, so beware to use it at home ... There are other cleaning agents for manual cleaning of furniture etc., also able to neutralize the corrosive HCl and Chloride components to some extent.
