Puff Back in your Long Beach/Oceanside home? We're here to help you!

1/2/2019 (Permalink)

A puff back is an explosion inside the burner chamber of your furnace or boiler. Although these types of explosions are usually very small and confined to the burner chamber itself, they can do considerable damage to the heating system and to your home. 

Once a puff back has happened you will often notice soot lining the areas in direct venting distance of your air vents. You may also notice your walls, ceilings, carpets, furniture and curtains coated with a film of soot/smoky streaks. 

Oil-fired heating units are the most prone to puff backs but proper maintenance of your oil burner is the only way to prevent these unfortunate mishaps.

Puff backs can be extremely tricky to clean up. We here at SERVPRO of Long Beach/Oceanside have a highly trained staff and use Eco-friendly equipment and cleaning materials to get the job done quickly and efficiently, leaving no traces of soot or any nasty odors. Contact us now at 516-536-1801 if your home has been affected by a puff back
