Pittsfield Puffback? Call SERVPRO

The "soot tags" in this photo are not cobwebs but the result of oily smoke that has contacted a cold surface. The PUFFBACK mess requires professional cleaning to minimize smearing. SERVPRO suggests that local homeowners with oil-based boilers, furnaces or water heaters have then inspected annually before firing them up for the cold winter months. Protect the safety of your family and your property while enjoying a toasty indoor evening in Pittsfield. Remember to call SERVPRO if an incident does occur for professional grade results making you feel "Like it never even happened."

Basement PUFFBACK in Pittsfield

SERVPRO advises all our neighbors with oil-fueled heating devices to have each furnace, boiler, or water heater inspected and serviced for top winter-time performance. The "soot tags" shown resulted from a furnace explosion that caused a dirty, sooty PUFFBACK not only here, but throughout several rooms of the Pittsfield home via the ductwork. SERVPRO can clean the oily residue, but typically minor or major demolition may be needed to remove non-salvageable porous building materials like drywall. We have the professional crew to mitigate these smoke-like damages while reducing your costs and working with you and your insurance adjuster to hopefully reach a fair settlement.
