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

Stopping it from happening is the most crucial step. Doing appropriate safety precautions will lower your likelihood of carbon monoxide poisoning in Atlanta.

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

  • Idle your car out of your garage. Cars are a large source of carbon monoxide poisoning, so do not leave yours running in the restricted space of a garage. The same goes for gas equipment like lawn mowers or snowmobiles.
  • Don’t run ovens or grills as heaters. These items are safe when operated right but can make carbon monoxide when on for an extensive period of time in tight spaces.
  • Don’t run a gas generator indoors, since it makes fumes.
  • Have your chimney checked by a professional. This makes sure chimneys and vents aren’t clogged and connected properly.
  • Check gas appliances are working correctly, especially your heating system. You can make sure you’re getting efficient, safe operation by scheduling annual furnace maintenance with Peachtree Service Experts.
