Why Cleaning up Soot from A Puff Back in Walpak Township NJ is Critical
Anyone with a furnace knows how much trouble a puff back can be. The soot that shoots into your home because of a misfiring furnace can cause a lot of damage to your furnishings and interiors. After a puff back explosion you may be tempted to try to remove the oily soot from surfaces in your home yourself. Trying to wipe away the grime with conventional cleaning supplies can quickly make things worse. Puff back cleanup must be done professionally using the right materials to effectively remove soot and keep the damage to your home and possessions to a minimum.
If your home or business experiences a puff back, you should not:
- Do not attempt to wash wallpaper or flat-painted walls, as improper cleaning will further compound the soot residue
- Do not use retail cleaning solutions or soap. These will only smear and spread the soot, not fully remove it
- Do not try to clean carpets and upholstered furniture
- Avoid touching items in the home. Soot on hands can easily permeate upholstery, walls and woodwork, causing additional damage
- Don’t wait! Soot travels and will reappear if not immediately removed

Kitchen fires, oil burner puffbacks, fireplace malfunctions or a blocked chimney can all create soot damage and smoke damage that need professional attention.

There are also numerous health risks involved with allowing soot and ash to permeate your home as a result of puffbacks.

Is your Walpak Township home heated by an oil furnace or burner? If so, it could be vulnerable to a puff back. A puff back occurs when an oil burner backfires, sending soot throughout your home. Although there is no guaranteed way to prevent a puff back, annual inspection and maintenance of your oil burner or furnace can greatly reduce your risk. If a puff back occurs at your home, soot can cover every surface and may range from light to very heavy. Sometimes the disbursement of soot is so light and fine it appears to be ordinary dust. However, this “dust” reappears hours after being cleaned. There is often a strong odor of oil accompanying a puff back. It is important to have a trained technician come out to look at the property thought to be affected by puffback and possible fire, ash and soot damage so the problem can be assessed.
