Grilling safety tip for Kingston, New Paltz and Saugerties residents!

As all Ulster County residents start to enjoy a well-deserved spring, it's important to know that your outdoor grill is STILL a fire hazard even after you've extinguished the fire or turned off the gas, for at least an hour after cooking.

Keep your grills a minimum of 10 feet away from any structure. Never cook or store it inside a garage or under a deck, it's a potential disaster waiting to happen!

The smell of smoke gets into everything that you don't think of!

Soot webs after puff back in this Wappingers, NY home

Soot webs occur when the furnace malfunctions and blows soot through the vent system. Since your vent system runs throughout your home or office, the soot can show up anywhere! That's what happened to this home in Wappingers Falls, NY!

Don't attempt to clean the soot webs on your own! They are oil-based so using cleaning product will only smear and make the damage worse. You will then need to re-paint the area after it is cleaned since the stain will remain on the painted surface.
