the dangers of bleach
« on: October 03, 2019, 10:28:14 pm »
Hello everyone,,
Day before yesterday i spent 4 hours at casualty(local hospital) with severe inhalation of Chlorine Gas. Nose running,eyes burning,severe coughing,hard to breathe,vomiting.etc  All because of a stupid mistake I made at work.
I had just finished a CCTV survey  in an old peoples sheltered dwelling involving a shower room where foul had been coming up through the floor drain/.
Being the good Samaritan I offered to clean up the floor ,so that the 80 year old gentleman could have a shower. Enclosed room with only extractor fan. Run shower, added 1/2 cup of industrial strength Chloris(bleach),and began scrubbing. Because of detergents/cleaners already in floor.the bleach reacted immediately and started producing a very toxic chlorine gas(which can kill).
Anyway after oxygen.nebulizers,blood tests,x-rays,and now on breathing steroids tablets. I would recommend that you all have some respect for even the common bleach and watch what you mix it with.It can be lethal.
