Fire Restoration in Hackensack, NJ | Furnace Maintenance Tips for Residents

In case of emergency, ServiceMaster Metropolitan provides fire restoration in Hackensack, NJ and surrounding areas.

It seems like fall never comes as gradually as we would like. One minute we’re basking in the glow of 75 and sunny, and the next we’re huddling into sweatshirts against the rainy 50s. In addition to dragging out the fleece blankets and sweatpants, your furnace has probably started to kick on in your home. Each year there are close to 400,000 house fires, according to the National Fire Protection Agency, and furnaces and heating systems are part of the top ten causes. That’s why ServiceMaster Metropolitan provides fire restoration in Hackensack, NJ, Fairfield, Jersey City, and the entire New Jersey metropolitan area.

One way to prevent house fires is having your furnace checked on a regular basis. Your gas or electric company might offer a safety checklist, or even some out to your house to check your furnace themselves! You can also call an HVAC technician to make sure everything is running as it should be. This is the fire step to preventing fire and smoke damage and fire restoration.

If you have an older furnace in your home, it might be a good idea to get it checked more than once a year. The older the equipment, the greater the chance of cracking in the combustion chamber. These cracks leave room for carbon monoxide to circulate throughout your home. CO is not only toxic when inhaled in large concentrations, but extremely flammable. For your health, identifying cracks in the combustion chamber is essential. It is also important to maintaining your building and avoiding the need for fire restoration after a stray spark.

Some other furnace maintenance and fire restoration prevention tips for Hackensack, NJ residents include:

  • Keeping the area around the furnace clear or debris and clutter.
  • Opening at least 80% of the registers in your home to keep resistance low.
  • Opening at least 80% of the registers in your home to keep resistance low.
