This week on the Martin Bros. Contracting, Inc. Facebook page, we presented to homeowners three different safety tips.
Keep your street address clearly visible from the curb. In addition to keeping vegetation trimmed, use large numbers in a prominent, well lit location on the front of your house. Even if you are diligent about home safety, accidents can still happen. In the event of an emergency, you’ll want to make sure that fire, police, or medical personnel can quickly locate your residence.
Always have a multi-purpose fire extinguisher accessible.
Make sure it is Underwriters Laboratories (UL) listed or Factory Mutual (FM) approved. Check the gauges to make sure they are charged and ready to use.
Clean aluminum mesh grease filters monthly.
The aluminum mesh grease filters should be washed in your dishwasher approximately every month depending on the amount of usage. Clean all-metal filters in the dishwasher using a non-phosphate detergent. Discoloration of the filter may occur if using phosphate detergents, or as a result of local water conditions — but this will not affect filter performance. This discoloration is not covered by the warranty. Wash often if your cooking style generates greater grease like frying foods or wok cooking. You cannot clean the non-ducted carbon filters; they must be replaced.
