What is a Puffback?

1/9/2017 (Permalink)

A puffback can be described as an explosion or misfiring inside the furnace. This can cause soot to be sent throughout the whole inside of a home. Covering walls, floors, furniture, drapes, cabinets, and pretty much all the things inside the home. A puff back can require some thorough cleaning to be done by a restoration company such as us, SERVPRO! It may even cause additional repairs on your home heating system.

Depending on the strength of the puffback and to what extent of its effect it can have on the home or building, can vary on whether or not how good the quality of oil that is ignited. There are other variables that come in to play as well, such as heater type, condition, building/home construction, etc..
