Puff Back in a Kingston, MA home

Puff Back in a Kingston home

This family’s Kingston home suffered from a puff back caused by a backfiring furnace. SERVPRO of Plymouth/Wareham worked hard to recover the structure and contents. We were able to remove the soot, debris and the smell from the home so that the family returned to a safe, clean space. Our goal is always to make your home “Like it never even happened.”

A puff back occurs when a furnace misfires and leaves soot all throughout a home or business. This misfiring is often caused by an oil burner that doesn’t properly ignite, causing a buildup of fumes before the ignition. Puff backs can leave black, sticky residue on your drapes, walls, cabinets, furniture and everything in between.

As you can see in these photos, the soot made its way to even the tiniest fixtures in this customer’s home. However, this isn’t just any soot. Soot expelled from puff backs is black and sticky and will include a mixture of oil proving very difficult to clean. SERVPRO of Plymouth/Wareham has the equipment, expertise, and experience to restore your soot, fire and smoke damage.  We will also treat your family with empathy and respect and your property with care.
