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

Stopping it from happening is the most critical step. Completing proper safety precautions will lower your risk of carbon monoxide poisoning in Waukegan.

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

  • Heat up your car outside your garage. Cars are a large source of carbon monoxide poisoning, so never leave yours going 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 things are safe when used right but can create carbon monoxide when used for an extended period of time in small spaces.
  • Don’t operate a gas generator indoors, as it produces fumes.
  • Have your chimney examined by a pro. This verifies chimneys and vents are clear and connected appropriately.
  • Verify gas appliances are operating accurately, especially your heating system. You can make sure you’re getting efficient, safe comfort by booking annual furnace maintenance with Robinson Service Experts .
