Washington, DC (PRWEB) February 22, 2012
Magnolia Plumbing, Heating & Cooling is giving back to the community this winter by providing free carbon monoxide (CO) tests in neighborhoods all over the Maryland, Virginia and Washington, DC area. The Maryland HVAC company will be leaving notices for homeowners letting them know when they will be in the area and able to perform this free carbon monoxide test. The homeowner just needs to call and get scheduled by the noted time for the available dates.
The technicians at Magnolia Plumbing, Heating & Cooling are experts in carbon monoxide safety and combustion analysis and want to help people in their community uncover CO related problems before they cause harm. Most people know that high levels of CO are harmful. What is less known is that carbon monoxide is a cumulative poison that can slowly build up in the bloodstream where it combines with blood hemoglobin and replaces the oxygen in the blood until there is too little oxygen. Younger people, particularly infants and children, as well as the elderly or anyone in poor health, may suffer effects at lower concentrations than healthy individuals.
Most store-bought CO detectors are not designed to pick up low levels of CO and only indicate when there are high levels that are imminently life threatening. Magnolia’s CO detectors are designed to pick up low levels of CO that may be occurring.
During this free carbon monoxide test, the technician will indicate the levels currently being emitted in the home, provide a checklist of the current CO safety levels and list any recommendations to improve safety.
For more information about the free CO TESTS being provided by Magnolia Plumbing, Heating & Cooling, please contact Joe Magnolia, Sr at 877-901-4822. Magnolia Plumbing, Heating & Cooling will be available for photo opportunities and recipient interviews to support a story as well provide additional information as necessary.
