Be On the Lookout for Soot and Smoke Damage as the Furnace Comes Back to Life

11/22/2021 (Permalink)

Like it or not, the time to kick our furnaces back on is upon us. Turning the heat back on kicks up a lot of things, such as dust and dirt that’s been building up in the vents over the course of the warmer months. Another thing that can be kicked up through ventilation could be soot and smoke if a furnace is not well maintained. Unlike dust, you can’t deal with the ill effects of soot through vacuuming and taking an allergy pill. The soot produced by a puffback has the potential to permanently damage and stain walls, appliances, kitchenware, and virtually everything else it touches. Trying to clean soot with common household cleaning agents will only further seal the soot in your home, causing permanent damage and staining. If your home has suffered from fire or soot related damage, trust the professionals at SERVPRO of Mid-Outer Cape Cod. Call us anytime, 24/7, at 508-778-7378. We’ll work to make it "Like it never even happened."
