Puffback Damage Cleanup

A puffback is when the furnace has a malfunction which causes air to be released in a puff throughout the house. The "puff" is dust particles and mixed with oil which looks like soot from a fire when it settles.

The method of cleanup

  1. Wipe down all surfaces with SERVPRO cleaning agents specific to break down oils and dirt.
  2. Deodorize damaged materials of lingering smoky smell.
  3. Clean air ducts if necessary and deodorize.
  4. Thermal fogging deodorization of hard to reach areas.
  5. Clean walls and ceilings that are damaged.
  6. Paint walls and ceilings which were heavily damaged to bring back original color

SERVPRO of Scarsdale/Mt Vernon is locally owned and operated. Our technicians and staff are highly trained. Visit our fire website for more information.
