Temecula - Are your Carbon Monoxide detector's in place?

How to avoid carbon monoxide poisoning

JULY 1, 2011!

• Install the alarms outside each sleeping area and on every level of the home, including the basement. This will warn you if the CO level rises in any part of the house.

• Ensure the alarms are plugged in, clear of dust and debris and have working batteries.

• Make sure you have the detector installed high up in your home. One placed near the floor will only detect the gas when it has almost completely filled the room.

• Consider having your fuel-burning appliances inspected by a trained professional before every heating season

• Don't idle the car in the garage. Even a short period of time is enough to fill the small space with gas.

• Avoid using a gas-powered engine or a charcoal grill indoors where carbon monoxide may fill the enclosed area.

• Never ignore the symptoms (dizziness, nausea, headaches and sudden tiredness). If you are feeling them, you could lose consciousness and die if you do nothing. Get out of the house and into fresh air immediately.

**Make sure to install per manufacturer's requirements and directions.**

If you know of a friend, family member, or neighbor looking to buy, sell. or relocate to the Temecula Valley, please feel free to introduce them to me!
