What is Furnace Puff Back?

Furnace puff back is a malfunction that can occur with a furnace that runs on oil or gas. It is caused by clogged fuel lines or filters, dirty or malfunctioning parts, improper maintenance, incorrect installation or the use of fuel that is not formulated for the furnace. During a puff back, oil will enter the combustion chamber where it ignites, causing a small explosion that can cause soot and smoke damage to the furnace and surrounding areas – including furniture, walls, and floors.

Time is of the Essence When it Comes to Puffback Damage Restoration

The chemical composition of puffback particles can deteriorate certain metals and damage other materials. As a result, rapid action is required to minimize property damage following a fire or puff back. Almost all of your furniture and belongings can absorb smoke and soot — particularly porous materials or surfaces, which may continue to absorb odors until removed.

A thorough inspection of your property is essential for evaluating the damage and establishing which cleaners or solvents are suitable. We’ve cultivated relationships with property insurance specialists, in order to do everything within our means to speed up all insurance claims. As for the puff back cleanup, we only use the most effective sanitizing, stain removing, odor extraction, and deodorizing techniques.

Sunday Morning I had no hot water, went downstairs to water over the top of my sneakers! The water heater was shooting water everywhere. I turned off the water supply and called the insurance company. They referred me to a restoration company, that didn't call back (until late that night). So after 2 hours I looked online and found RAPID RESTORE. I called them and received an immediate response. They were at my house in less than an hour , and had a team there cleaning up in less than 2 hours. Shawn was the lead man and he arranged everything very quickly and efficiently. He also kept checking back with both me and the crew to answer any questions, he was very reassuring to me that everything would be Ok. he called me at least once every day to let me know what was going on. The crew that came knew exactly what they were doing. and had the water gone, dehumidifiers running and some items from the floor outside within a couple of hours. Brandon and Nick were quick and efficient in their setup work. The next morning a crew of 6 persons arrived and began the process of removing all of the contents to a storage unit in the driveway. Brandon was the lead and explained everything as we went along. They separated good items from wet items. and packed everything as if it were their own. They worked 3 days and 2 storage trailers full. Brandon and the 2 Nicks were great ! They were efficient and clean as they worked. Demo was next with them removing all of the damaged materials. Carpets came up, paneling came down insulation was removed and everything was vacuumed and sprayed with anti fungal spray and then all the studs were hand wiped to make sure all was covered in the solution. All of the garbage was removed the same day. This morning Shawn was at my door at 8:30 AM to meet the insurance adjuster and he took care of all the details. He had taken pictures of everything (something I forgot to do) I could not have asked for a better response to my disaster than the team of experts I got at Rapid Restore. No offence, but I hope I never need their services again, but I am glad to know they will be there if I do need them again! Rebuilding the basement is my next step, and i will be speaking to them about this ASAP./ I would recommend THIS CREW AND COMPANY without any reservation, Thank you to the whole crew.

When you have had a flood call these guys. They showed up right away and got to work. Helped me with the entire process. Very thankful for them
October 26, 2023
Super impressed with the quality and professionalism of the Rapid Restore team. Ronnie the owner made it a point to personally be at the first meeting and initial estimate but assured me that project manager Tyler would take good care of us. I was honestly very skeptical at first, but Tyler quickly erased any of those feelings. He was super attentive to details, responsive and always found a way to go above and beyond! Down to a final cleaning and extra little details. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them to anyone who finds themselves needing a reliable contractor who was easy to work with, quick to respond, knowledgeable about working with insurance companies and honest and dependable. Ronnie and Tyler and the Rapid Restore team for sure!!

This company is superb! The owner operator - Ronny is kind, gentle and handled everything from the first drop of water, worked with our insurance company and the adjuster to get our repairs completed. His team is amazing, professional and sweet. The dynamic duo of Brandon and Nico came with their team to take photos, and then pack up my entire house so the work could begin. Tyler handled the whole project- coordinated all aspects from start to finish; demolition, Sheetrocking/spackling, painting, floor refinishing and now getting my house back together! I can say thank you enough to this team of amazing young men! The professionalism, courtesy and kindness far exceeded all of my expectations! I would 1000% recommend this team to anyway who has water and/or any other damage to their homes! Just the BEST!

What causes furnace puff back?

Furnace puff back is caused by the buildup of dirt, rust, soot and grime that accumulate in the exhaust system of a furnace. This buildup can cause an incomplete combustion in the furnace, which is then expelled back into the home in the form of an explosion of dust and soot.

Do puff backs happen when furnaces go bad?

Yes, puff backs are a type of furnace malfunction that can occur when a furnace is old or ill-maintained. It occurs when an oil-burning furnace backfires, sending unburnt fuel out the exhaust or flue pipe. This can cause smoke and soot to enter your living space.

How do I proceed once my home suffers puff back damage?

If your home suffers puff back damage, the first step is to contact a qualified restoration contractor to assess the damage and begin repairs, some of which can even contact your insurance company and file the claim on your behalf. It is important to act quickly and get the cleanup and restoration process started as soon as possible. Puff back damage can cause serious health problems due to the harmful soot and oil particles that the puff back can release. Your insurance company may cover all or part of the cost of the cleanup and restoration, depending on your coverage.

My soot damage insurance claim stemming from my furnace puff back is moving slow, can I speeden up the process?

First, double check that all the paperwork has been filed correctly and is in order. You should also keep in contact with your insurance adjuster or agent to ensure that your claim is moving forward and to find out if there is any additional information or documentation required. Finally, you could consider contacting a public adjuster or a local restoration company that can handle the back and forth with the insurance company on your behalf.
