Furnace Puff Backs Cause Soot Damage in Aitkin Home?

3/7/2023 (Permalink)

Sooty black smoke fills the air. We restore fire damage 24 hours a day in Aitkin County.

Our local team in Aitkin, Carlton, and West St. Louis Counties is trained and certified to clean and restore furnace puff back damage “Like it never even happened.” Puff backs that occur in a forced-air heating system can send soot traveling through the entire house, bringing soot with the warm air through the home’s ventilation system. When a puff back occurs in a forced-air heating system, soot can be released into closed areas such as closets and rooms with closed doors.

Here are some symptoms of furnace puff backs:

·      Odors, noises, and soot around the boiler or furnace room

·      Visual signs of debris. The heating system needs to be cleaned and serviced if you see soot, rust flakes, and debris in the flue vent connector.
