Leave Puffback Restoration in Your Yarmouth Home to the Professionals

Soot strings Soot and smoke damage can look like cobwebs. Don't mistake the two. Smoke damage can be permanent if not cleaned properly.

Ever notice black soot near your furnace? How about black residue on your walls, ceiling or surrounding heating vents? If so, the last thing you should do is grab a rag and household cleaner because this may be a telltale sign of a puffback.

At SERVPRO of Mid-Outer Cape Cod, we’re all for homeowners and business owners saving money wherever they can. However, skimping out on puffback restoration will cause permanent damage to walls, ceilings, floors, appliances and just about everything else inside your property. Soot from a furnace puffback most often spreads to every surface in the building, even if the soot isn’t visible to the naked eye. If not treated correctly, your property and your own personal health may be at stake.

So, you may be wondering, “How exactly does SERVPRO treat smoke and puffback damage?” First of all, we test most every surface in your home for smoke and soot particulates. Soot damage will deteriorate objects and structure in your home, sometimes past the point of restoration. Plates and fine China will discolor, paint can be left permanently stained and electronic appliances can be irreversibly damaged. If not tested correctly by a professional, parts of your home or business that you wouldn’t expect to be damaged could deteriorate before your eyes. Furthermore, through use of patented cleaners and chemical sponges, SERVPRO removes puff back damage thoroughly and permanently.

If your home or commercial property is in need of fire restoration or smoke damage removal, Call SERVPRO of Mid-Outer Cape Cod at 508-778-7378. Call us to set up a free estimate. We’ll create a plan of attack that’ll leave your property looking and feeling "Like it never even happened."
