Smoke and soot are corrosive elements that can cause significant damage to surfaces and materials in a home, especially porous materials like wood, drywall, and furnishings. These elements are also toxic and can have a detrimental effect on your health. If your home is heated by an oil furnace system, there is a chance that a furnace puffback could occur and blow soot, smoke, and debris into your home. These elements will cause damage to the surrounding materials and this damage can become permanent without quick action. Calling a professional right away for cleanup can help prevent extensive or permanent damage.
ServiceMaster TEAM provides puffback cleaning services in Northeast Philadelphia, PA to restore materials damaged by smoke and soot from a furnace puffback. Our technicians use advanced cleaning products and methods to remove soot and smoke damage and salvage affected building materials and furnishings.
Damage from Furnace Puffbacks
In oil furnace systems, a puffback can occur if a problem with the ignition causes an explosion within the system. When this happens, smoke, soot, and other debris are expelled through the HVAC system and will enter the home through the vents. These materials will settle on walls, ceilings, flooring, and furnishings in the area, and they can cause tarnishing, etching, and corrosion. If the building materials and furnishings damaged by the smoke and soot are not restored quickly, they are at risk of permanent damage.
It is virtually impossible to effectively clean up smoke and soot using over the counter products, and you may end up making the damage worse if you try.
