Puff Back Damage Cleanup | Westchester, NY & Fairfield, CT

Puff Back Damage Cleanup

A "puff back" is a furnace misfire that results in an explosion, akin to a car backfiring. This can lead to soot covering your furniture, floors, ceilings, and other parts of your home or office. Puff backs happen when the oil burner doesn't light right away, generating a buildup inside your furnace that can cause an explosion. Older furnaces are more vulnerable than newer ones. For puff back damage cleanup services, the name to trust is First Response Restoration.

Since 1991, our IICRC-certified crews have cleaned properties in the wake of puff backs in White Plains, Putnam Valley, Newburgh, Fishkill, and other cities within our New York & Connecticut service area. The technicians at First Response have years of experience handling puff back damage. For more information, call us at 914-268-6141 or click here to schedule services ASAP.

Mistakes to Avoid when a Puff Back Occurs at Your Home or Office

In a puff back, let the proven professionals from First Response Restoration handle the cleanup. Some mistakes to avoid:

  • Do not try to clean carpets and upholstered furniture.
  • Do not use retail cleaning solutions or soap. These will only smear and spread the soot, not fully remove it.
  • Do not attempt to wash wallpaper or flat-painted walls, as improper cleaning will further compound the soot residue.
  • Avoid touching items in the home. Soot on hands can easily permeate upholstery, walls, and woodwork, causing additional damage.
