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

Preventing it from happening is the most critical step. Taking appropriate safety precautions will lower your likelihood of carbon monoxide poisoning in Dallas.

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

  • Warm up your car outside your garage. Cars are a significant source of carbon monoxide poisoning, so do not leave yours on in the confined space of a garage. The same applies for gas equipment including lawn mowers or snowmobiles.
  • Don’t run ovens or grills for heat. These appliances are safe when used right but can make carbon monoxide when used for an extensive period of time in small spaces.
  • Don’t use a gas generator indoors, because it creates fumes.
  • Have your chimney checked by a specialist. This ensures chimneys and vents aren’t blocked and connected properly.
  • Check gas appliances are working correctly, especially your heating system. You can ensure efficient, safe operation by requesting regular furnace maintenance with Levy & Son Service Experts.
