A puffback is a messy furnace malfunction that occurs when an oil burner backfires, sending soot throughout your home or business.  It can happen all at once, covering a whole home or business -- and every horizontal surface -- in grimy soot.  Or, a puffback also can be the result of a boiler that leaks soot particles more gradually.

If your home or business is affected by puffback, contact a certified restoration team, preferably a local company in your community, near Tuckahoe.  You don't want day workers or folks that no one knows on your property.  This is a tough clean up and can take days to remove all the soot particles after a puffback.  So, look for highly trained, background checked soot restoration techs for this work.  

 

It's always best to "shop local" in Eastchester/Tuckahoe are best when you have a sooty mess on every surface in your home and business.  This is essentially a fire cleanup, as if there was a burning room or oily kitchen fire and Tuckhoe's finest came to put the fire out.  

 

Companies that do restoration, like ours, have the training, the EPA regulated and other cleaning materials and the experience to quickly and efficiently get your property clean again.  Often, our guys and gals leave a home or business cleaner than it was before their puffback.  We have to touch and clean EVERYTHING, to make it "Like it never even happened."

So, some older boilers or machines that have not been cleaned annually, may blow creosote and particulate all over.   With arctic temps through the next week, and a quick warm up next Tuesday, be aware of your boiler working overtime and the threat of frozen pipes.

 

 

 

Good luck and this is just a reminder to get the maintenance done, so you won't need me and Forrest and our teams later.  Spring is on the way...yaaaayyy!  

 

Stay tuned for ice dam flooding under shingles, how to prevent it and another frozen pipes threat!
