Recent tragedies have prompted
us to display this very important information.

Carbon monoxide is a potentially deadly gas produced any time a carbon-based fuel, such as gasoline, propane, charcoal, or oil, burns. Sources in your business include gasoline engines on truck mounts & trucks, generators used for portable equipment, or any other fuel powered accessories (propane heaters, etc). Cold or poorly tuned engines produce more carbon monoxide than warm, properly tuned engines. However, carbon monoxide is always produced whenever an engine is running.

Carbon monoxide is colorless, odorless and tasteless and mixes evenly with the air. It enters your bloodstream through the lungs and displaces the oxygen your body needs. Early symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning - irritated eyes, headache, nausea, weakness, and dizziness - are often confused with seasickness or intoxication. Prolonged exposure to low concentrations or very short exposure to high concentrations can lead to death.

Each year, many carpet cleaners are injured or killed by carbon monoxide. Most incidents occur when the work vehicle is parked in the vicinity of an entrance or window of the premises being cleaned. Situations of greatest concern are when the technician parks the work vehicle in a garage to facilitate cleaning in cold or rainy weather.

Caution should be exercised when positioning the vehicle so that exhaust is not pointed toward or too close to the entry, open windows, or HVAC intake, that carbon monoxide could enter the building. This precaution includes engines with exhausts that may be used during the course of cleaning (e.g., generators, truck-mounted extractors, etc.)
