Avoiding Carbon Monoxide Exposure In Your Home

Carbon monoxide is a gas that is colorless, odorless, and extremely dangerous. It has been known to trigger all kinds of illnesses in people, and it can even be deadly when symptoms are not addressed in time. Doing what you can to avoid carbon monoxide exposure is vital when it comes to keeping you and your family members as safe as possible.

Carbon monoxide exposure kills!

Effects On Your Health

When a person is exposed to carbon monoxide, they will often experience flu-like symptoms. Unfortunately, many just assume they have caught a bug or cold, not knowing that carbon monoxide may have entered their home. Symptoms include nausea, headaches, dizziness, confusion and other flue like symptoms. The real sign is if the symptoms aren’t going away. Then it’s time to visit the doctor and rule out carbon monoxide exposure.

While some symptoms can be treated, others are more permanent. People have been known to get organ or brain damage, and infants, the elderly, and those with weakened immune symptoms are especially at risk. It’s not worth taking any chances to take the necessary steps to keep your home better protected as soon as possible.

Preventing Exposure

Wondering what you can do to minimize your risk of carbon monoxide exposure? Well, first things first, invest in annual inspections for your appliances and heating systems. Regular inspections done by a professionally trained crew can make all the difference when it comes to detecting carbon monoxide and spotting problems that may lead to exposure.

Utilizing The Best Tools & Technology

The chimney sweep industry is always evolving, which is why it is important to stay up-to-date on any advances in the field. We do this by obtaining and maintaining certifications and memberships with a wide range of reputable organizations! One thing we take pride in is using video equipment in all of our inspections. This gives us the opportunity to check every inch of your chimney thoroughly, so we don’t miss a thing!

So, what will we check for? One thing we take note of is how much creosote you have in your system. Creosote forms as you burn fires in your fireplace and, when too much of it is present, your risk of chimney fires increases dramatically. Why is this? Because creosote is extremely flammable! It can take on a few different forms (flaky, tar-like, or hard/glossy), but no matter which type you have, it poses serious threats to your system.

Fortunately, our sweeps can sweep your chimney in time for any fires you have planned this winter, guaranteeing a cozier and more enjoyable night for you and your friends and family members. We’ll get the job done right so that you don’t need to stress about a thing. Give us a call today !

Now, creosote isn’t the only thing we check for. We’ll also ensure your system is free from damages, and that all of your chimney parts are working like they are supposed to. If you need something replaced or if your masonry needs some fixing up, we’re trained and qualified to handle it! We’ll also look to ensure there are no clogs and obstructions present. A proper draft is vital when operating your fireplace, so removing build-up is essential.
