Soot Webs after Puffback

I clean all the time and have cobb webs in the corner of my house! What is it? IT'S NOT DUST! IT'S SOOT!

Soot webs occur when the furnace malfunctions and blows soot through the vent system. Since your vent system runs throughout your home or office, the soot can show up anywhere! That's what happened to this home in Wappingers Falls, NY!

Don't attempt to clean the soot webs on your own! They are oil-based so using cleaning product will only smear and make the damage worse. You will then need to re-paint the area after it is cleaned since the stain will remain on the painted surface.

If you see soot webs, call our office at 845-831-3600!
