Furnace Soot Removal

A malfunctioning furnace can be the cause of soot in your home. There is a normal amount of soot that can occur in the combustion chamber, but it shouldn’t get very far in your home. If you notice soot distribution around your furnace or even near ducts in other rooms, you should call for professional furnace soot removal.

One common reason for the presence of furnace soot is called “puff back”. You might hear a loud noise in this mini-explosion. You should shut off your furnace as soon as possible. A burning smell will sometimes accompany the soot, along with visible smoke in the air and black splatters along your walls. Regular HVAC maintenance will help prevent issues like this from reoccurring.

Steps You Can Take to Prevent Further Damage

Additionally, if you have recently experienced a fire in your home or business, you should take these steps to prevent further damage to your property:

  • Vacuum floors and upholstery to prevent soot damage – DO NOT wipe with a wet rag.
  • Avoid eating any food that may have been contaminated during the fire. Also, turn off your electricity to clean the refrigerator and freezer.
  • Change the air filter in your furnace and tape damp cheesecloth over vents to capture soot in the air.
  • Avoid wiping anything, as this will smear the soot and cause further damage. Instead, let a professional take care of cleaning valuables.
  • Call ServiceMaster South Shore immediately after the damage occurs.
  • If it is warmer than 60 degrees outside, open your windows and doors to air out your property.
