What is Puff Back?

Puff back is more common with oil-burning equipment, such as a furnace, but can also occur with gas-fired heaters. Puff back occurs when an ignition switch malfunction causes a furnace or boiler to discharge a massive amount of soot. Because the soot is black and sticky, it creates a major cleaning and deodorizing challenge. Interior surfaces, furniture, carpet, clothes, bedding and most other building contents must be treated to remove soot stains and odor. Sometimes ductwork must also be cleaned.

Count on Stash Property Restoration to deliver reliable fire damage restoration services, smoke damage cleanup, and soot cleanup. Leave the dirty work to our experienced team and let us restore your property to its pre-disaster condition.

Quick action is important when it comes to soot damage repair

When it comes to fire restoration and soot damage repair, taking quick action is crucial. Soot contains chemicals that can corrode metals and cause harm to various materials. Minimizing property damage requires immediate attention after a fire or furnace puff back incident. Smoke and soot could penetrate and absorb into furniture and contents, especially porous surfaces, and can continue to emit odors until properly removed.

At Stash Property Restoration, we begin the restoration process with a meticulous home inspection to assess the extent of the damage. Our experienced team determines the appropriate cleaners and solvents needed for effective soot cleanup. As recognized experts in the field, our services are well regarded by property insurance professionals, and we work diligently to expedite insurance claims.
