Spring Cleaning Reminders
A working smoke alarm increases your chances of surviving a fire by more than 50%.
So go ahead, put a finger on it! Test all your smoke alarms once a month and save lives!
Cleaning your chimney on a regular basis prevents a smoke filled room and prevents fires and sparks which are fire hazards. Birds and other animals may nest in unmaintained chimneys. Chimney Sweeps are available in the Austin Area.
CLEANING DRYER VENTS
Dryer vents, hoses , and screens should be cleaned on a regular basis throughout the year. If your dryer vents through the roof of your home a chimney sweep can assist as well as your appliance repair company.
Air conditioners are equipped with a drain that is clearly visible when changing the filter. This condensation drain should be cleaned on a regular basis. Not cleaning the condensation drain can result in clogs which can result in damage to your or a neighbor’s home.
Check your water heater! The calcium content of central Texas water can cause the water heater to fill up with calcium. Contact your appliance service company to schedule a clean out of your hot water heater. It will extend the life of the appliance and increase efficiency.
