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

Prevention is the most important place to start. Taking correct safety precautions will lower your risk of carbon monoxide poisoning in Miami.

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

  • Idle your car outside your garage. Cars are a significant source of carbon monoxide poisoning, so never leave yours on in the small space of a garage. The same applies for gas equipment like lawn mowers or snowmobiles.
  • Don’t operate ovens or grills as heating sources. These appliances are safe when run correctly but can produce carbon monoxide when on for an extensive period of time in little spaces.
  • Don’t run a gas generator indoors, since it makes fumes.
  • Have your chimney examined by a pro. This verifies chimneys and vents aren’t blocked and connected correctly.
  • Confirm gas appliances are operating properly, particularly your heater. You can make sure you’re getting efficient, safe operation by scheduling yearly furnace maintenance with Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning.
