Smoke Alarm - Spring Check
This year Daylight Savings Time came a little earlier than it usually does. Hopefully that didn’t throw you off and you still replaced your smoke detector’s battery. This should be done at least twice a year to ensure that this life-saving device is ready when you need it. Even newer units that are hardwired into the homes electric have a battery to use as backup. Ensure you change those regularly. Also
Test your smoke alarms monthly.
To help prevent nuisance alarms, gently vacuum your smoke alarm every six months or as needed.
Never borrow smoke alarm batteries to use for toys or other equipment.
Replace all smoke alarms every 10 years or as recommended by the manufacturer
