Is It Easily Detected?

Some gases are fairly noticeable by scent or noticing something off about the air in your home. This makes them easier to detect and can make a big difference in keeping your loved ones free from harm! Unfortunately, carbon monoxide isn’t one of these gases. It has no color or odor making it basically impossible to notice with your basic senses – a very unsettling thought!

Fortunately, there are devices designed for detecting this toxic gas. Having these detectors installed throughout your home ensures that you are notified if any carbon monoxide is present. If they alert you, get yourself and your loved ones out of the home immediately and call the proper authorities to handle the situation.

Preventing Exposure

Along with having carbon monoxide detectors professionally installed throughout your home, there are other things you can do to avoid its presence altogether. First of all, invest in professional help for all of your installation needs and annual maintenance. The CSIA certified team at Sweepnman, Inc. can help you out with your fireplace and chimney!

We also clean and maintain dryer vents, so be sure to have these checked over, too. If these are blocked up, toxins can easily back up into your home. Call on our professional team to set you up right!

Along with investing in regular maintenance and inspections, be sure you’re using your appliances appropriately and in accordance with the manufacturer’s guidelines.
