For your peace of mind, when our techs come into your home, they are equipped with nitrile gloves and disinfectant products that they use before and after they are done working.
As part of our safety procedures, the tech will use disinfectant wipes on surfaces that are frequently handled such as thermostats and switches and spray Lysol disinfectant spray where needed, such as in kitchens and bathrooms.
If you have sensitivities to these products, please let us know.
It is also important that we do not transport the virus from one home to another.
Therefore, we will need to determine if a visit to your home will present a Coronavirus risk. Here are the questions you can expect to be asked:
Has anyone living in your house been on a cruise ship in the last 14 days?
Has anyone living in your house traveled to a CDC high-risk area within the last 14 days?
Has anyone living in your house had contact with a person who has traveled to a CDC high-risk area within the last 14 days?
Has anyone living in your house had contact with a person who has been diagnosed with the Coronavirus disease?
Does anyone living in your house have a fever?
Does anyone living in your house have a recent onset cough?
Does anyone living in your house have difficulty breathing?
Does anyone living in your house have other acute respiratory symptoms?
Is anyone living in your house under quarantine?
If the answer is yes to any of these questions, then providing service at your home could put the service technician and subsequent customers at risk and we want to take the proper precautions necessary.
REGARDING YOUR SCHEDULED VISIT AND YOUR PEACE OF MIND.
Your peace of mind is important to us. Therefore, in the current circumstances it is understandable if you wish to postpone scheduled visits. Just give us a call!
General Safety Rules When Dealing With Natural Gas
Follow directions from the manufacturer for using and taking care of gas appliances. Seek professional help when necessary.
Keep combustibles such as papers, fluids, paints, curtains and rags away appliances.
Keep gas ranges clean, make sure burner bowls are free of used matches, grease, paper, etc.
Have a fire extinguisher near gas appliances at all times. Use a CO2 or dry-chemical extinguisher for the kitchen.
Teach children never to light or play with the controls of any gas appliances.
Keep the pilot lights of your gas range lit. If you put them out to save energy, a dangerous gas build-up can occur if someone accidentally turns on the range.
Look for a certification seal when purchasing a new gas appliance. This ensures that the equipment design meets strict safety standards.
Never use your gas range to heat your home or apartment. This practice creates a serious fire hazard and puts you and your family at risk from dangerous carbon monoxide fumes.
If You Smell Natural Gas
Open windows or doors and leave the facility.
Do not look for the source of the smell with any open flame (even using a flashlight could be dangerous).
If the smell is very strong, or you hear a blowing or hissing noise, leave immediately.
Do not use anything that could generate a spark
Do not use the telephone
Do not turn light switches or equipment using electricity on or off.
Do not turn vehicle ignitions on or off.
Go to a neighboring phone and call the fire department or 911.
Remember These Tips When Taking a Trip
Whether you’re headed for a tropical getaway or to a cooler climate, here are three tips to make your return more pleasant.
Before leaving, set your water heater to pilot and turn off the air conditioner to save energy and money.
Be sure your gas light is burning and put an indoor light on a timer to give your home a lived-in look.
Make your vacation last all summer by creating your own backyard paradise with a gas grill, lights, spa or patio heater. Keep your home cool by moving cooking outdoors, and forget the mess of charcoal or refilling propane tanks.
