Are you maintaining your smoke alarm properly? With new research undertaken by smoke alarm specialists at Victoria University have found that less than one in twenty Melbournians undertake smoke alarm maintenance properly, chances are you are not protecting your family and home from serious house fires.
Smoke alarm testing and maintenance is a legal requirement in Victoria and all around Australia. Yet, 60% of people have never cleaned the inside of their smoke alarms and 17% don’t change their batteries annually.
Don’t be part of these statistics.
Smoke alarms can reduce house fire fatalities by up to 60% so undertaking thorough smoke alarm testing regularly is a no-brainer when it comes to protecting your family and possessions.
For your smoke alarm to properly protect your family when you need it most, it’s vital that your smoke alarm device is tested regularly.
Maintaining smoke alarms correctly means more than just simply pressing the test button and changing the batteries when the device starts beeping. It’s imperative that your smoke alarm is tested using smoke simulation to ensure that it will detect smoke at the very start of a fire; otherwise it may not trigger.
