You cannot see, smell or taste carbon monoxide (CO). The gas effortlessly penetrates through walls and floors. Regular maintenance of your natural gas devices and the use of an approved carbon monoxide detector, which can be installed in interior spaces in the same way as smoke detectors, offer effective protection against carbon monoxide building up to deadly levels. We will perform an exhaust measurement to check carbon monoxide levels as part of our visit to inspect and adjust your natural gas devices.
The Initiative for the Prevention of Carbon Monoxide Poisoning (Initiative zur Prävention von Kohlenmonoxid-Vergiftungen) explains the dangers posed by carbon monoxide and how you can recognise the signs of carbon monoxide poisoning, as well as how to prevent it, with the ‘CO macht K.O.’ campaign.
