Smoke Alarms are simple devices, found at most residential and business facilities. These alarms could save your life!! Because they're so important to the safety of those who occupy a building, it's important to know how to maintain them. 

Here's what you need to know about Smoke Alarms

You Need More Than One

A single smoke alarm will do you no good if a fire breaks out that's not near the vicinity of that alarm. The NFPA recommends alarms in each bedroom, and on each floor of a property. It's best these are away from anything that could interfere with its operation such as doors, ducts, or windows. 

They Need to be Tested Regularly

Most smoke alarms require monthly tests to ensure the system is working. Follow the manufactures instructions for your smoke alarm testing.

Batteries Need to Be Operational

Most smoke alarms are equipped with non-replaceable 10-year batteries that are designed to remain effective for up to 10 years. If your smoke alarm chirps or emits a pulsating beep, the batteries may need to be replaced.
