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

Prevention is the most important place to begin. Completing proper safety precautions will decrease your chances of carbon monoxide poisoning in Tulsa.

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

  • Idle your car away from 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 is true for gas equipment including lawn mowers or snowmobiles.
  • Don’t use ovens or grills as heaters. These items are safe when used right but can produce carbon monoxide when on for an extended period of time in small spaces.
  • Don’t run a gas generator indoors, as it produces fumes.
  • Have your chimney inspected by a pro. This confirms chimneys and vents aren’t blocked and connected correctly.
  • Check gas appliances are working accurately, particularly your furnace. You can make sure you’re receiving efficient, safe heating by scheduling annual furnace maintenance with Jack Nelson Service Experts.
