Northwest Lake County Cleans Up Even After Smoke/Soot from Puff Backs!

Oil furnaces provide blissful heat, and they usually work without a hitch. When they don’t, however, the hitch is enormous. Puff backs, for example, fill your home with corrosive, greasy, foul-smelling smoke and soot that can reach every cranny of your home. As soon as you wipe one area clean, the circulating air deposits additional messes on the area. Call Northwest Lake County for experienced, high-quality, accredited cleaning, odor removal, and other restoration services. We even clean or repair the air ducts!
