What can be done to protect my home from carbon monoxide?

Preventing it from happening is the most essential place to begin. Completing appropriate safety precautions will decrease your risk of carbon monoxide poisoning in Fort Worth.

Here are a couple steps you can take to keep your family protected:

  • Heat up your car away from your garage. Cars are a major source of carbon monoxide poisoning, so never leave yours running in the confined space of a garage. The same applies for gas equipment such as lawn mowers or snowmobiles.
  • Don’t use ovens or grills as heating sources. These items are safe when run properly but can produce carbon monoxide when used for an extensive period of time in little spaces.
  • Don’t operate a gas generator indoors, because it makes fumes.
  • Have your chimney examined by a pro. This verifies chimneys and vents aren’t blocked and connected properly.
  • Verify gas appliances are working correctly, including your heater. You can make sure you’re receiving efficient, safe operation by requesting regular furnace maintenance with Calverley Service Experts.
