What Is A Puffback?

A puffback is a misfire in your furnace due to unburned fuel building up in the combustion chamber. When the excess fuel finally ignites, it creates a small explosion which produces soot and smoke. The smoke and soot from the puff back travels throughout the heating system of your home and deposits on to walls, floors, ceilings, and furniture.

What To Do After A Furnace Puffback

After a puffback occurs in your Old Saybrook home, smoke and sticky, black soot can cover every surface. Before you jump into cleaning soot and smoke yourself, stop! Puffback cleanup should be performed by a fire and smoke damage restoration company.

But why?

  • Improper cleaning of smoke and soot residues can make the mess worse and harder to clean
  • Vacuuming carpets or upholstered items can embed soot further into them
  • Without the right chemicals or cleaning supplies, homeowners cannot neutralize smoke and soot odors from a puffback

  1. File an insurance claim
