A puff-back can deposit soot all over you home.
What is a puff back you ask? It is a misfiring in the furnace that, at its worst, can send soot throughout your home, covering drapes, bedding, furniture, cabinets, walls, and everything in between. It requires expensive cleaning and restoration in addition to repairs on your heating system. It is basically like having a small fire in your home.
