Where should u place carbon monoxide detectors? Near sleeping areas, but near baseboard or up higher? I've read contradictory opinions when "Googling"

From NJ,I was waiting for the elevator in my apartment in the 11 floor when the custodian was vacuuming the path near me.I am worried about Hantavirus
What's the worry?: You are 26 years old and I'm glad you're reading up on health.

The world is full of dangers, known and unknown, but fearing ordinary daily things is something you can't do. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Friend's top part of bedroom window open 1/2 inch all nite. horizontal blinds were down. No screen. Afraid a bat flew in? Rabies? No sign of bats.
? stop freaking out: You would know if bat bit you, even at night. The blinds were in place, so the boat's radar would not perceive that window as open.
