Puff Back Cleaning
Are you experiencing puff back and wondering why it happened and what you should do?
Puff Back? What is it?
Whether you have a hot water heating systems, gas furnace, or oil furnace, there's always a chance for puff back. However, it is most common with an oil furnace heating system. Puff back occurs when there's a misfiring in the furnace, causing soot to spread into your home, covering your furniture, drapery, walls, ceilings, and everything else. The soot coverage may range from a light dusting to a more concentrated coverage. Though it may be tempting to want to clean the soot, it's better left for the professionals. This soot not only is extremely messy and has a strong odor, its contents can be carcinogenic, therefore needs to be thoroughly cleaned and deodorized.
