CARBON MONOXIDE POISONINGIT IS COLOURLESS, ODOURLESS AND HAS NO TASTE. IT IS A KILLER.
CARBON MONOXIDE POSIONING IS CAUSED BY FUMES FROM FAULTY HOME HEATING APPLIANCES.
WHAT IS IT?
Carbon monoxide can be given off by any appliance which burns a fossil fuel such as gas, coal or oil. It can enter your home if: your appliance is faulty, or the room is not properly ventilated, or the chimney or flue is blocked.
WHAT TO DO?
Ensure your appliances are correctly installed and regularly serviced.
Ensure the rooms in your home containing appliances are properly ventilated - never block vents.
Make sure all chimneys and flues are regularly swept and kept clear.
Carbon Monoxide detectors / alarms are available in all good hardware stores. These provide an extra safety precaution, but never rely entirely on them.
If you have a problem contact your fuel supplier.
SOME DANGER SIGNS
Sooty stains on or just above appliances.
Appliances that burn slowly, badly (floppy flames), or go out.
Condensation or dampness on walls in the room once the appliance is lit.
HOW DOES IT MAKE YOU FEEL?
Carbon monoxide sometimes makes people feel ill. If you develop any of the following: drowsiness - headaches - chest pains - sudden giddiness when standing up - sickness, diarrhoea and stomach pains - stop using your appliances and ask your doctor to check for carbon monoxide poisoning.
