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

Preventing it from happening is the most critical place to begin. Doing correct safety precautions will reduce your chances of carbon monoxide poisoning in Waldorf.

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

  • Heat up your car away from your garage. Cars are a significant source of carbon monoxide poisoning, so do not leave yours on in the small space of a garage. The same goes for gas equipment like lawn mowers or snowmobiles.
  • Don’t run ovens or grills for heat. These appliances are safe when run correctly but can make carbon monoxide when run for an extended period of time in small spaces.
  • Don’t operate a gas generator indoors, as it makes fumes.
  • Have your chimney examined by a pro. This makes sure chimneys and vents are clear and connected appropriately.
  • Verify gas appliances are working correctly, particularly your heating system. You can ensure efficient, safe comfort by requesting routine furnace maintenance with A-PLUS Service Experts.
