Smoke detectors can help to keep our homes safe by alerting us to the dangers of a house fire or smoke. That’s why maintaining the smoke detector system and ensuring all of its parts are working correctly is crucial for the safety of our lives and our homes. If you notice anything faulty about your smoke detector system or would like to get it inspected, get in touch with our team at HomeOps Electric. We’d be happy to do a safety inspection to make sure your smoke detector is up to date and working as it should. Our team is available 24/7, every day of the year. Give us a call or schedule online to get local electricians.
Is There Potential Harm?
If your smoke detector is beeping or making any unusual sounds, it’s important to check your surroundings for any potential dangers. Check for gas stoves that may have been left on, candles, cigarettes, or any other potentially dangerous areas that could be a cause for fire and smoke. Once you’ve checked and confirmed that there is no potential harm, make sure the batteries or power source are working properly. If you haven’t changed the batteries on your smoke detector in a long time, it’s important to make sure to do that so the detector works properly and efficiently.
Have You Cleaned Your Smoke Detector?
If your smoke detector is making loud noises for reasons you can’t see, it may be that the detector is dirty. Sometimes, dirt and scum can build up in the device and needs to be cleared away. If the sensing chamber detects any kind of humidity, steam, or even debris, it could be setting it off. It’s important to keep your smoke detector free of any dust, debris, or any other environmental factors that could hinder its performance. At HomeOps Electric, our team is equipped with the tools and knowledge to make sure your smoke detector is working right. We’re happy to come for a safety check and ensure that all the parts are working as they should. Give us a call or reach out online. We’re available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
