Generator Safety from SERVPRO®

Here in Southern Maryland we know all too well that having a generator is important. When we decide to purchase generators, we are thinking about the good it will bring and what protection it offers. A generator can allow us to keep the lights on, fan or heaters going and as a mom I think of the refrigerator, we must preserve our food!

What we often forget are the safety concerns that come along with using a generator. Here are some generator safety tips to consider.

  • Never use a generator inside the home or even in partially enclosed spaces, like the garage! Opening windows, doors and using fans will not prevent carbon dioxide buildup.
  • Install carbon dioxide alarms in central locations on every level of your home.
  • Do not use a generator in wet conditions. Make sure the generator is outside but not in the rain or snow as this could cause electrocution.

With Southern Maryland’s crazy weather patterns, we need to be prepared with knowledge and equipment to protect our families in a storm.

SERVPRO® of Charles County and SERVPRO® of Oxon Hill are available 24 hours a day – 7 days a week and YES even during the storm, so call us today: 301.753.8313 or 301.292.4447.
