If there’s smoke and soot in your property, then your personal belongings, furnishings, and surfaces are susceptible to serious damage. These corrosive and toxic products can also harm your own health.
Furnace puffbacks are a common way for smoke and soot to cause damage in your home. When a puffback occurs, the furnace blows soot and debris into your home which can lead to extensive damage to any nearby surfaces and walls. If this damage isn’t cleaned in a quick enough manner, then it can spread by way of your home’s HVAC system.
Through our soot puffback cleaning services in Frederick, MD, ServiceMaster of Montgomery, Howard, & Washington Counties will clean and restore materials and surfaces affected by smoke and soot.
Damage from Furnace Puffbacks
When there is an ignition issue that causes an explosion within an oil furnace, a puffback will occur. This explosion sends out smoke, soot, and various debris that end up in air ducts and the exhaust system. The soot and other debris will then spread throughout your property and settle onto surrounding surfaces and materials. The smoke and soot will cause corrosive damage to most objects and materials, including wood, furnishings, drywall, and more. Without proper and timely cleaning, the damage will become permanent. This makes it important to get immediate help.
If you use standard cleaning products to clean the soot, then it will only worsen the damage. The soot residue becomes smeared instead of cleaned. Knowing this, call a professional who has the proper cleaning products and equipment for soot and smoke damage cleanup. We will effectively clean the damage and get rid of any lingering smells left behind by the smoke and soot.
