Puffback Awareness in Chesapeake

Puffbacks can be loud with a distinctive wuff sound. Fireplace or wood stove puffbacks are often caused by a problem in the chimney such as a buildup of ash and leftover residue clumped in the chimney. A furnace puffback can occur when there is a buildup of excess fuel, oil, even dirt or dust in the ignition chamber. Both instances result in a powerful explosion of soot, ash, and even oil that can cover the whole room in a dark residue. 

If your home is damaged by a puffback, SERVPRO of Chesapeake North will help to clean up the residue damage. We are helping to make it "Like it never even happened."
