Your Indoor Air Quality Matters
When you are faced with an emergency, there are a number of steps you can take to ensure the quality of your indoor air doesn’t suffer. While most homes rely on electricity to keep the indoor air quality acceptable, a power outage does not have to mean your air quality has to plummet. Solid preparation ahead of an emergency can make it easier to keep your home comfortable during a power outage. With carbon monoxide detectors properly installed in the home, you will become aware of any elevated CO levels before they become a hazard to you.
Keep Your Home Ventilated
Whenever possible, open up doors and windows to keep the air in your home comfortable. When you can’t open windows, make sure all the doors in your home are open to allow air to circulate. If you can’t open windows and the air quality in your home is starting to suffer, it may be time to seek emergency shelter. If the air is cold in your home, make sure to open up blinds during the heat of the day to allow any natural sunlight to warm up your home.
When You Need to Use a Generator
If you are using a portable generator to heat your home, pay attention to the instructions for the generator. It should never be used in an enclosed space, as carbon monoxide will build up quickly. Use lanterns or flashlights for lighting instead of candles to minimize the potential for fire. If you are using a grill to cook, use it outside and not in a garage or in your home.
Air filters help keep the air you breathe within your home safe. In an emergency, you can stay focused on your indoor air quality by installing carbon monoxide detectors. Open windows when you can for ventilation and never use gas burning appliances in your home. When cooking becomes necessary, either use your stove that is powered by an outdoor generator, or cook outside on a grill. Keep you and your family safe during any emergency by being well prepared.
