Now when you’re heating up your house, it’s really important to make sure that rooms have ventilation.
But it’s really important to make sure these vents are never covered by anything – like a curtain, a picture or stuffed full of paper.

If you’re lucky enough to have a real fire which burns coal or wood, then you should have the chimney swept once a year so that the fumes from the fire can escape.

Make sure they’re on every floor, especially where people are sleeping.
