Protect your Shaker Heights Household from Dangerous Chemical Mixes

5/1/2019 (Permalink)

SERVPRO of Beachwood and Cleveland Northeast are encouraging homeowners not to mix certain chemicals together. These chemical mixtures include, but aren't limited to:

Ammonia and Bleach:  Combining these together can create toxic vapors which can lead to throat burns or respiratory problems.

Vinegar and Bleach:  Combining these together can release toxic chlorine and chloramine vapors that  can cause chemical burns to your lungs or eyes.

Hydrogen peroxide and Vinegar:  Combining these together can create peracetic acid or corrosive acid which in high concentrations, can harm your skin, eyes, throat, nose and lungs.

Rubbing Alcohol and Bleach:  Combining these together makes chloroform.  If exposed to this, you may become dizzy or sick.  High levels can  lead to damage to your eyes, nervous system, lungs, skin, liver kidneys or can even cause death.

Safety First!

Remember to keep the cleaning products in the original containers with the original labels! Follow all instructions indicated by the manufacturer and keep all cleaning products out of reach from children.
