Soot Damage Repair

Soot Damage Cleanup & Repair Company Serving Macomb, Oakland, Wayne Counties and MI

What is Puff Back?

Puff back is more common with oil-burning equipment, such as a furnace, but can also occur with gas-fired heaters. Puff back occurs when an ignition switch malfunction causes a furnace or boiler to discharge a massive amount of soot. Because the soot is black and sticky, it creates a major cleaning and deodorizing challenge. Interior surfaces, furniture, carpet, clothes, bedding and most other building contents must be treated to remove soot stains and odor. Sometimes ductwork must also be cleaned.

Soot damage can be especially discouraging. In addition to coating surfaces with an oily residue, soot can permeate into just about any material, leaving behind a bad smell that can’t be removed by conventional cleaning methods.

Fortunately, there’s no need to feel overwhelmed by the extensive cleanup work you’re facing. You can take advantage of soot cleanup technology and expertise at On-Site Specialty Cleaning & Restoration, your local disaster restoration contractor.

Quick action is important when it comes to soot damage repair

Soot’s chemical composition can corrode certain metals and harm other materials. That's why quick action is necessary to minimize property damage after a fire or a furnace puff back. Smoke and soot can be absorbed by almost all your furniture and contents, especially porous materials or surfaces, and may continue to absorb odors until the soot is removed.

We begin our restoration process with a thorough inspection of the home, assessing the damage and determining which cleaners or solvents are appropriate. Our services and expertise are well known to property insurance professionals, so we do everything possible to expedite all insurance claims. Then we use only the most effective techniques for cleaning, stain removal, odor removal and deodorizing the home for soot and smoke cleanup.
