Some of the most overlooked safety devices in your home is a smoke detector and a carbon monoxide detector. They can be the best life-saving investment you will ever make for your family. It is imperative that you protect your home from deadly gases and smoke.
Carbon Monoxide Detectors
Carbon monoxide poisoning can be a serious threat to your health if it is there are no preventative measures taken to avoid it. Of all of the avoidable poisoning death causes in the US, carbon monoxide poisoning is one of the most common. Because it lacks color, taste and odor, it is among the most dangerous home issues. And most importantly, it is 100% preventable.
Installing reputable carbon monoxide detectors can be the literal difference between life and death. If undetected, this leaking gas can kill an entire family in the matter of hours, or in some cases, minutes.
Carbon monoxide can be released by some of the most common systems within a home. Items like a gas range, stove, gas clothes dryer, water heater, furnace, gas or wood fireplace, space heaters, car exhaust, charcoal grills, and clogged chimneys or flues can cause this gas to be emitted into your home.
To keep carbon monoxide gas out of your home, it's important that carbon monoxide detectors are properly installed on every floor of your home, and outside every bedroom. It's also important to have a service expert like Mister Sparky® to repair any gas appliance needs right away.
