Smoke alarm installation and testing

How many smoke alarms are installed in your home? Are they all functioning? Do you really want to wait and find out the hard way?

These are the kinds of question that make all the different when keeping your family safe at home and your colleagues and livelihood safe at the office. Smoke alarm installation and inspection is one safety measure you can take.

Unfortunately, more than 50 people all over Australia die each year due to home fires. No one wants to take unnecessary risks when it comes to your home. Smoke alarms are the simple yet effective devices that emit loud noises upon the detection of smoke, thus providing any sleeping or oblivious occupants of the house the necessary and lifesaving moments to escape any dangerous situations.

Electric Express can put your mind at ease by installing state-of-the-art, top-of-the-line smoke alarms in your home or business. It’s not only matter of safety. It’s often also a question of legal compliance.

How to keep your home safe

smoke alarm installation and testing

According to the NSW Fire and Rescue Department, there are several things every household needs to know about smoke alarm installation. All homes are required to have at least one working smoke alarm on each level. This includes accommodation such as:

  • Rental properties
  • Caravans and campervans
  • Any residential building where people sleep
  • Relocatable homes

For best practice, we also recommend:

  • Testing smoke alarms monthly, by pressing on the test button
  • Regularly cleaning out the air vents of your alarm, using a vacuum cleaner
  • Replacing the batteries of your alarm/s annually
  • Replacing your alarms every 10 years or less

The above guidelines are a recommendation, however, when it comes to safety, it’s better to be safe than sorry. Ask a professional for the ideal number of smoke alarms to be fitted to your home or office spaces. Furthermore, training your staff or your family in the right emergency drills and safety procedures is also important for minimising the risks.
