Keep Your Family Safe with Carbon Monoxide Testing
Thousands of people are killed every year due to carbon monoxide poisoning. According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, approximately 400 Americans are killed each year from unintentional poisoning from the colorless and odorless carbon monoxide gas. Experts promote carbon monoxide testing as a great way to ensure your home is free from the deadly gas. Waldman Plumbing is highly experienced in performing these checks in homes and businesses across Boston.
What is Carbon Monoxide?
Carbon monoxide is a gas that is emitted from many different household appliances, including gas stoves, space heaters and water heaters. Some people are unaware that they are breathing in excessive amounts of carbon monoxide because it is generally undetectable by any of our five-senses. The symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning are headache, dizziness, confusion and nausea, many of the same symptoms as a cold or flu. Because the symptoms are so ambiguous, it is essential to call the professionals for carbon monoxide testing of your home.
Carbon Monoxide Detectors
Carbon Monoxide detectors sound an alarm when abnormally high levels of carbon monoxide gas are detected. Although most detectors can be plugged into the wall, they also have a battery backup. Using these detectors in combination with smoke detectors is a great way to protect your family from harm or even death.
