Soot Puffback Cleaning

Soot and smoke can cause significant damage to household surfaces, furnishings, and other objects in your home.  There doesn’t even have to be a fire for soot damage to occur as furnace puffbacks can release soot and residue through the vents of your HVAC system.  When a puffback occurs, soot and smoke from within the heating system come out of the vents and settle in nearby areas.  This can lead to significant damage to drywall and wood surfaces, drapes, furniture, and other nearby objects.  The soot will continue to spread through your home after a furnace puffback and the affected objects and materials risk permanent damage.  This is why you need to call a professional immediately.

At ServiceMaster Restoration by Complete, we provide puffback cleaning services to clean up damage caused by soot and smoke.  Our technicians know how to effectively remove soot from various household surfaces and furnishings to restore the affected materials to their original condition.

Furnace Puffback Damage

Soot Puffback Cleaning in Franklin Township, NJ and Middlesex and Somerset CountiesMost homes in Middlesex and Somerset counties in New Jersey are heated by oil furnace systems.  These heating systems may experience a puffback if the ignition malfunctions, causing a small explosion within the furnace that releases soot, residue, and smoke.  These materials will travel into your HVAC system and come out of the vents and into your home.  The soot and residue will settle on the surfaces and objects near the vents, including drywall, woodwork, drapes, and furniture.  Each of these materials is porous and may experience serious damage from the soot and residue.  It is possible for the damage to become permanent if the affected materials are not cleaned right away.

Finite soot is very difficult to clean with over-the-counter cleaning products which is why we recommend calling our professionals.  Using improper cleaning products will likely make the soot damage worse and make it more difficult to restore the affected materials.  Our technicians will always have the proper cleaning equipment to safely remove damage caused by soot and residue and give the affected materials the best chance of being saved.
