How to prevent Carbon Monoxide in Your Home!

KNOW THE RISKS OF CARBON MONOXIDE

Anything that burns a fuel; such as a furnace, fireplace or car can produce Carbon Monoxide. 

PREVENT EMISSIONS IN YOUR HOME 

High-quality ventilation is critical for avoiding CO poisoning. Do not start a car, fire up a grill or stove, or run a generator in a closed area. 

SCHEDULE REGULAR MAINTENANCE 

Make sure to select expert tradesmen to install your fuel-burning devices and set up the appropriate venting for each device.

KEEP YOUR VENTS CLEAR


During or after a storm, make sure nothing is obstructing the outside stack or vent for your dryer, stove, furnace and fireplace, 

USING THE RIGHT PAINT

Water-resistant paints and wallpapers really help in the prevention of damp and mould.

Leave to ventilate. 

Opening windows and doors on a dry, warm day will allow air to circulate through the house.

AVOID CREATING MOISTURE

Simple tasks such as doing your washing can put your home in risk of damp. Hang your washing outside away from the house or fit in a tumble-dryer. After using the shower, even dabbing the moisture off the mirror can help keep your home damp-free!

LOOK AFTER YOUR HOME'S EXTERIOR

Keep on top of outdoor home maintenance, such as keeping your gutters and drains clear and functioning. Avoiding these tasks can cause leaks, structural damage or rising damp.

CONDENSATION

Condensation is the leading cause of damp. Condensation occurs when steam comes in contact with a cold surface, such as a wall or a window. Double glazed windows, under floo heating or wall and roof insulation are the most cost effective changes you can make to your home.

I just wanted to let you know that the Engineer (Mickey) who came to me last Tuesday, was brilliant. I have had ongoing issues with my boiler since November with each engineer replacing a part in boiler but not resolving the issue as boiler continues to stop working! Mickey was the first engineer to ask to look at my tank , where he found the reason for the boiler stopping frequently. Unfortunately as at the time he came the boiler had started up again ( very random) it was unable to be fixed. Mickey explained why the boiler wasn't working and I full understood this , a first! Well done .He was polite and courteous throughout. More than can be said for the engineers I had from another company whom I refused to have back in the house as they were rude and I felt intimidated with them in the house . Once again thank you for sending such a brilliant engineer, and if my boiler stops again I sincerely hope its Mickey who comes to fix it as I have confidence in his ability to fix it once and for all 😀.

Kind regards, B Donovan
