How does Fire Prevention Safety help?
Smoke and flames may be easy to see, but what about when a fire starts in a part of the house where no one is or in the middle of the night? Not to mention carbon monoxide, the “silent killer”. Carbon monoxide is colorless, tasteless, and odorless, and can build up in the house from malfunctions or simply improper ventilation of your appliances and fixtures. That is why smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors are not just necessary to have but must also be checked regularly.
Fires and carbon monoxide poisoning can happen suddenly, spread very quickly, and become extremely dangerous. Protect your family today from this very credible threat. We can install carbon monoxide detectors in your home, check your smoke alarms for function, and replace your batteries all at once!
When your alarms’ batteries are low or empty it renders the detectors inactive which can be very dangerous. They usually begin to chirp and many times occupants simply remove the battery out of annoyance meaning to replace it and completely forget to replace it with a new one. It is for this reason that it is recommended to simply change all the batteries every daylight savings, whether it needs it or not. This is a simple way to make sure you are replacing the battery twice a year regularly.
It is also important to note that your smoke alarms should be replaced after 10 years of use because they stop functioning properly. On the back of most smoke detectors are where the date of install is usually located. We can check this for you in our Fire Prevention Safety call as well as replace all your batteries and check to make sure all your detectors are in working order. Don’t put your family at risk! Call us to install your carbon monoxide detectors, too!
