Soot and smoke are very damaging elements that can corrode and tarnish all types of surfaces, furnishings, and items throughout a home. Exposure to these substances is also dangerous for your health. If your home is heated by an oil furnace, gas fireplace, electric baseboards, or boiler system, you can end up dealing with smoke and soot in your home when a furnace or fireplace puffback occurs. The oily soot that is blown out of the furnace and in-and-out of your HVAC system can cause serious damage to the surrounding walls and furnishings that can become permanent without proper cleaning.
ServiceMaster by Mason provides soot puffback cleaning services in Norwich, CT to cleanup and restore the effects of a furnace puffback. Our technicians use advanced cleaning equipment and products to restore soot damaged materials and personal belongings, and remove smoke odors.
Damage Caused by Furnace Puffbacks
Oil furnace systems are prone to soot puffbacks if there is a problem with the ignition that can cause an explosion or back-up within the system. The explosion causes smoke, finite or thick soot, and debris to move through the system and in-and-out of the vents into your home, carrying the soot that began in your basement to all rooms and floors in your home. Puffbacks can also occur when gas logs shift in fireplaces or built-up dust in your baseboard heaters climb up walls with a “ghosting” effect. The soot will settle on various surfaces and furnishings including drywall, wood, carpeting, drapes, ceiling tiles, and furniture. All of these materials are vulnerable to tarnishing and corrosive damage and if they are not properly restored right away, they can become permanently damaged.
The finite or thick soot that is released cannot be cleaned with typical cleaners or over-the-counter products. These simple products will only smear the soot and oil, or cause them to further permeate walls and porous items, worsening the damage. It takes professional cleaning with advanced products and methods to remove soot from affected surfaces and materials. Our professionals will effectively remove soot damage, oily residue and strong odors, and restore the affected materials to their original condition.
