Carbon Monoxide Testing
What is Carbon Monoxide Testing?
This service determines whether your business or home’s combustible appliances are releasing harmful levels of carbon monoxide. Exposure to carbon monoxide reduces the blood’s ability to carry oxygen. Like radon, carbon monoxide is odorless, and some of the symptoms are similar to common illnesses, so entire families often fail to realize they’re being poisoned. Carbon monoxide can be particularly dangerous because its deadly effects are rarely recognized until it is too late to take action against them. For more information, visit the following sources:

Identifying the Problem
Because carbon monoxide is odorless and invisible, the only way to test for it is with a detector or with the help of professionals. Being proactive and taking preventive steps can save lives.
