It’s important to understand what a puff back is if you rely on a furnace to heat your Long Island home.
Oil burners should ignite immediately after turning on. If it fails to do so, fumes can accumulate inside the furnace, and those fumes can cause an explosion in the burner chamber. As the explosion vaporizes, soot is released throughout your house, coating walls, baseboards, floors, furniture, and anything else in its path with toxic soot. Soot can reach the ceiling if it’s powerful enough. This is known as a “puff back”.
Our mission is to support our clients who have suffered a traumatic loss to their home or business. We commit to meeting our client’s needs during this emotional time and treat each loss as if it happened to our home and our family. We take great pride in restoring our client’s home or business to its original condition or better.
A puff back can be a devastating event. The soot that is dispersed throughout your home is highly corrosive and can cause extensive damage to the building materials and furnishings it coats. It can also seriously damage your heating system. As soon as you have determined a puff back has occurred, immediately shut off the heating system to prevent additional damage. If you suspect the risk of fire or if there is a large amount of smoke, you and your family should evacuate your home (don’t forget pets!). If the carbon monoxide detector sounds, immediately vacate the premises and contact emergency services.
