Beware of Dangerous Carbon Monoxide Detectors

Ebay and Amazon have removed from their website two alarms which are branded as 'Bumwo' and 'Mudder' due to them being found to be dangerous.  In tests carried out by the magazine Which? They failed to go off when tested. 

We urge all landlords to check their rental properties to ensure that these detectors are removed and replaced with another brand.

Although Martin and Co Uckfield recommend that Carbon Monoxide Detectors are fitted in any property which are heated by gas or oil, the legal requirement is that they must be fitted to any property which burns solid fuel.
