Soot Buildup From Puffback In Upstate NY Home

This homeowner in Rensselaer County, NY experienced heavy smoke and soot damage throughout their home from a puffback in their oil furnace. A puffback occurs when an explosion happens in an oil burning furnace, caused from unburned fuel build up that finally ignites. This results in thick heavy smoke and soot throughout your home. Not only will your furnace have to be repaired after a puffback, but your home will require a heavy cleaning and deodorizing.
