Furnace Puff Back Cleanup
is a furnace puff back? It is the discharge of soot into your home due
to a faulty ignition switch in your heating system. The soot is black
and sticky causing a strong, smoke-like odor throughout your home. While
more common with oil systems, a furnace puff back can occur with oil or
gas, forced air or hot water systems. When a puff back occurs, soot is
spread to all surfaces within your home: drapes, bedding, furniture,
walls, carpet and contents. If the soot travels through your home's duct
work, it must be cleaned and deodorized as well.
Over the past 20 years, Certified Water, Smoke & Fire professionals have cleaned hundreds of puff backs throughout New York's capital region, western MA, and southern VT.
