Call it gallows humour, but that is the most accurate way to describe CO poisoning. Carbon monoxide is a colourless, often unscented gas that can leak for hours without detection. Highly ignitable and poisonous, it is a serious threat that must be handled professionally.
All gas-fed appliances can leak carbon monoxide. That includes gas stoves, ovens, BBQs, gas heaters and gas ducted heating.
Inner City Plumbing is one of Melbourne’s most trusted carbon monoxide detector specialists. We are trusted by countless homeowners and businesses to perform carbon monoxide testing and ensure their loved ones, staff, and clients are safe.
Accidents happen. The best you can do is prepare for them as well as you can. Safely installed and properly maintained gas appliances dramatically reduce the chances of a CO2 leak, which is why we use premium tools and components in our work.
Prevention is always better than a cure. As a full-service gas plumber, we can help you to avoid potential carbon monoxide poisoning entirely. But, should the worst occur, you can trust us to be there when you need us.
