Carbon monoxide can be fatal even in small doses, particularly for elders and small children, and is virtually odorless meaning getting your home or office tested is highly important. At C Lee Services, we can eliminate the risk and guarantee total peace of mind for you and your family by using the latest, state-of-the-art carbon monoxide testing equipment and tools to conduct a professional assessment of possible issues in your commercial or residential property.
The Dangers Of CO Exposure
Carbon monoxide is difficult to perceive with the nose and the naked eye because it's invisible and has no discernible odor. When carbon monoxide levels reach 70 ppm, or parts per million, it's considered to be very lethal. In gas form, carbon monoxide can be dangerous in low concentrations, and serious complications and symptoms can show up in CO levels as low as 9 ppm.
CO is dangerous when taken as it impedes the body's ability to carry oxygen to where it needs to go. The symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning can vary from one person to another, depending on several factors such as exposure length, gas concentration and the individual's overall health condition. Some people may experience unusual dizziness, lethargy and nausea, while others may feel a painful headache and difficulty breathing.
If CO persists in an environment and is not cleared, the poisoning can have long-lasting, often fatal effects. For this reason we'd recommend getting a carbon monoxide test done on buildings and residential properties and to have a carbon monoxide detector installed in key locations such as bedrooms and office cubicles.
When To Schedule A Carbon Monoxide Check
Take stock at all the fuel-burning appliances in your house and see if they're starting to show their age. Have each one checked for possible carbon monoxide production. Even newer equipment will need to be tested to eliminate possibilities. Duct systems, combustion air, venting systems and additional appliances can be compromised, depending on variables such as shock, vibrations, pressure and building structure and its operation can lead to extra CO being emitted.
Carbon emission can even come unlikely sources, such as your boiler, space heater, gas logs, gas range and water heater. At C Lee Services, we recommend carbon monoxide testing at least once on all your installed appliances, and preventive CO testing each year.
