Let Our Contractors Help Protect Your Family From Smoke & Fire
Do you check your smoke detectors regularly? Maintaining properly functioning smoke detectors greatly increases the likelihood of your family surviving a fire.
If a home does not have smoke detectors, the smoke detectors are poorly located, or not working the family is not sufficiently protected.
Maximizing Your Family’s Protection
The best thing you can do to protect your family in the event of a fire is to make sure you have smoke detectors installed in the right places and check them regularly. Smoke detectors should be located on each level of the home, in every bedroom, and within 15 feet of each bedroom door.
To ensure maximum protection, make sure that you:
- Place smoke detectors in optimal locations
- Replace batteries annually, including backup batteries
- Replace smoke detectors every 8-10 years
- Check your smoke detectors twice a year
