What Is Puff Back?

Puff back is more common with oil-burning equipment, such as a home furnace or boiler, but can also occur with gas-fired heaters. Puff back occurs when an ignition switch malfunction causes a furnace or boiler to discharge a massive amount of soot. Because the soot is black and sticky, it creates a major cleaning and deodorizing challenge. Interior surfaces, furniture, carpet, clothes, bedding and most other building contents must be treated to remove soot stains and odor. Sometimes duct work must also be cleaned.

Soot damage is traditionally attributed to the aftermath of a house fire or the results of a furnace or boiler malfunction (also known as a puff back). The oily and gaseous properties of soot, make it one of the most difficult substances to clean-up, especially if not addressed in a timely matter. In addition to coating surfaces with an oily and gaseous (carbon) residue, soot can permeate into just about every nook and cranny in your home, leaving behind a horrible smell that can’t be removed by conventional cleaning methods.

Quick action is important.

Since soot is a byproduct of the combustion process, it’s black and powdery form can quickly turn into a sticky and gaseous form – easily circulating throughout your entire building. That’s why it’s important to react quickly! The sticky attribute of soot may cause the byproduct to cling to many unwanted areas throughout your building, such as wall corners and exhaust pipes.

Your best chance at minimizing the damage to your home is to act sooner rather than later, as smoke and soot can be absorbed by almost all of your furniture and contents, especially the extremely porous materials or surfaces, as they may continue to absorb odors until the soot is removed.
