Carpet Cleaners Die Due To Carbon Monoxide Poisoning

“A Utah couple who run a carpet cleaning  business were found dead from carbon monoxide poisoning on Saturday night in a  tragic accident while working at a house.

Maria Lopez-Landaderde, 38, and Jose  Lito-Solorzano, 44, were found unresponsive in a West Jordan home about  6.30pm.

They were discovered by three people who had  been planning to move into the residence and were waiting in a truck with their  belongings nearby, according to Fox 13.

Authorities believe the victims were  preparing the home for the new tenants when they fell unconscious inside the  residence.

Fire department officials said when they  arrived, a van appearing to belong to the carpet cleaning company was parked  inside the garage.

They said the van was running and the garage  door was closed.

‘There was an auxiliary motor that runs that  they use as they clean the carpet and it appears that carbon monoxide was  getting into the home, causing the two adults to become unconscious and suffer  from carbon monoxide poisoning,’ West Jordan Fire Chief Marc Mcelreath  told.

The new tenants, who asked not to be  identified, said they had been waiting to get approval to begin moving  in.”

Whenever inviting a carpet cleaning company to your home homeowners should take precautions to make certain cleaners with truck mounted equipment do not park within 10 feet of a closed garage door.  Carbon Monoxide is odorless and deadly.
