Carbon monoxide is a common gas that is fatal to humans at relatively low levels. Because it is impossible to smell, see, or taste, carbon monoxide can build up to toxic amounts without notice. Produced by malfunctioning fuel-burning devices or by other common household appliances such as central heating boilers, the toxic gas kills hundreds each year due to inadequate detection methods. In addition, continued exposure to non-fatal levels of carbon monoxide can lead to permanent vascular and other types of damage. The steps below will provide an easy guide on how to detect carbon monoxide, and measures for reducing the risk of poisoning.
