Smoke alarm Compliance & Safety

The Importance Of Maintenance

Smoke Alarms save lives and provide you and your family with the limited, yet precious time needed to get to safety. Thus, it is crucial to ensure they are tested and cleaned to ensure that it is working optimally.

While many people neglect to keep their smoke alarms clean, dust, pollen, dander and cooking vapours can build up and contaminate your smoke alarm, causing false readings or no warnings when needed.

Much like any other electronic device, a smoke alarm’s batteries need to be regularly replaced. Batteries will deplete and deteriorate over time, thus reducing the efficacy of the smoke alarm.

In order to preserve the condition of your smoke alarm, partner with the team at Maintag today!
