Winter Heating Safety Tips

When winter weather blows in cold temperatures, use the following safety tips when it comes to heating your home:

  • Always use the proper fuel, specified by the manufacturer, for fuel burning space heaters
  • Remember to turn portable heaters off when leaving the room or going to bed
  • Have heating equipment (HVAC) and chimneys cleaned and inspected every year by a qualified professional
  • Test smoke alarms monthly
  • Keep anything flammable at least three feet from heating sources like a furnace, fireplace, wood stove or portable space heater
  • Make sure all fireplaces have a sturdy screen to prevent sparks from flying into the room

If your home or office does suffer from smoke, soot or fire damage, contact your local SERVPRO® of Blount County Professionals to get your home or business back in order, quickly.
