What is a Furnace Puffback

A Furnace Puffback is the result of a faulty ignition in your furnace, resulting in a discharge of smoke and soot throughout your home. This soot travels through ductwork and cavities, allowing it to spread to distant parts of the home. This soot then accumulates on ceilings, walls, floors, and on content items, making cleaning after a Puffback a time intensive process.

We had a Furnace Puffback, can we clean this up ourselves?

For the most part, No. The soot residue on ceilings and walls require specialized products and procedures to clean in order to reduce the necessity for painting. Additionally, smoke and soot is able to penetrate hard to reach areas of the home such as basement and attic rafters, ductwork, and cavities, making effective removal of the soot and the associated odor difficult.

What you should do after a Home Fire

Do Contact your local Disaster Blaster

Disaster Blaster knows how to clean up fire & smoke damage and is also knowledgeable in the insurance claims process.

Do Protect Plumbing

If your fire occurred in the winter, you may need to have a plumber winterize the property to prevent frozen pipes.

Do Document Damage

Take pictures of all of the damage to your home, contents, and yard, and keep a list of anything that has to be disposed of.

Do Save Receipts

Save everything. Contractor bills, hotel and dinner receipts, material receipts… Your Insurance company will need these.

Do Prevent Further Damage

You may need to have your roof tarped or windows boarded up, or drying services started, to prevent additional moisture damage.

What you should NOT do after a Home Fire

Don't Enter the Home

Until your home is deemed safe, it’s important to stay outside. A Fire Marshal should conduct an inspection and let you know when you can go in.

Don’t Take Your Laundry to a Normal Dry Cleaner

Not all dry cleaners can handle smoke-damaged items. Your local Disaster Blaster will have someone they work with that they can refer.

Don’t Use Water, Electric, or Gas

Fires can damage supply lines and electrical wiring. It’s best to avoid using these utilities until you know they’re not damaged.

Don’t Save or Use Contaminated Food or Medicine

If food or medicine was contaminated with smoke, it has to be thrown away. Don’t forget to make a list of these items for your insurance company.

Don’t Start Cleaning Yourself

Smoke cleaning is very specialized. If you try to clean it yourself, you could make it worse!
