Puff Back Cleaning


Whether you have a hot water heating systems, gas furnace, or oil furnace, there is always a chance for puff back. However, it is most common with an oil furnace heating system. Puff back occurs when there is a misfiring in the furnace, causing soot to spread into your home, covering your furniture, drapery, walls, ceilings, and everything else. The soot coverage may range from a light dusting to a more concentrated coverage. Though it may be tempting to want to clean the soot, it is better left for the professionals. This soot not only is extremely messy and has a strong odor, but its contents can also be carcinogenic, therefore it needs to be thoroughly cleaned and deodorized. RDS Fire & Water Damage Restoration has the manpower and equipment to get you back to normal, soot free, in no time.
