Chimney Puff Back Cleaning in Waccabuc, New York by Green Restoration of Norwalk-StamfordThe Danger of Chimney Puff Back in Waccabuc Homes

The most dangerous result of the puffing back of a fireplace or stove isn't the odor and sticky residue that the soot leaves behind. A clogged or improperly-functioning chimney can cause smoke to be pushed back inside, causing a build-up of carbon monoxide in your home. Carbon monoxide can not be seen or smelled. It is often only recognized someone experiences symptoms of CO poisoning. If your fireplace or chimney in Waccabuc is puffing back, this is a sure sign you need the pros at Green Restoration of Norwalk-Stamford to resolve the issue quickly. Call (203) 951-9125 today for a quote on chimney puff back cleaning.


Causes of Waccabuc Fireplace Back-Puffing

There are several reasons for a chimney to begin back-puffing. Here are some of the most common issues seen by the restoration crew at Green Restoration of Norwalk-Stamford:

Creosote Build-up

Repeated fires in a fireplace causes creosote to build up and thicken inside the chimney. Creosote is highly flammable, and can ignite when more smoke is generated than can be expelled through the flue. Regularly having your chimney swept will remove this build-up and prevent puff backs and risk of fire.

Inefficient Venting

Chimney smoke needs a straight path from which to allow smoke to exit the chimney.  Any turns in the flue or pipe create resistance to the exiting smoke. If your home’s venting system was built with twists and turns, this impacts your stove or fireplace’s ability to vent.

Inadequate Home Ventilation

Many homeowners believe that extensive insulation is better to keep homes warm and save in heating expenses, a home that is sealed too tightly can actually “suffocate” your chimney. If you experience puffing back after adding new windows or insulation, you can be confident poor ventilation is the problem.

Chimney Obstruction

If the chimney is obstructed, air cannot flow out. Instead, smoke will build in the flue pipe until the pressure builds and the smoke is thrust back into your living space. Annual chimney inspections and cleanings will ensure the flue stays clear.

Exceptionally Cold Air in the Chimney

Freezing air temperatures can prevent the smoke in your chimney from being able to escape. If the air can't be released, it will have to move in the opposite direction.  Call Waccabuc's chimney puff back cleaning team at Green Restoration of Norwalk-Stamford to remove all signs of smoke and soot at (203) 951-9125.


The Importance of Cleaning After Back-Puffing in Waccabuc

While chimney back puffs are a dirty nuisance, the problem can actually be worse than originally thought. Chimney puff backs can cause real damage to your home. Depending on the severity of the puffing back and the amount of smoke released, many items in your home can be coated with a corrosive film. In addition to the smoky odor that will linger, particles from the puff back soot in Waccabuc homes become embedded in carpeting, upholstery, and clothing.
