Smoke Detector Importance

10/6/2021 (Permalink)

Right now, Americans are bombarded by more rings, beeps, chirps and electronic sounds than ever before.  It is important that everyone knows the importance and understands the sounds coming from smoke and carbon monoxide alarms and how to respond.  For example, when a smoke alarm chirps intermittently, it means it's time to change the battery, but a continuous set of three loud beeps - beep, beep, beep - means smoke or fire.  Understanding the difference and taking the appropriate response saves lives.  Let's review the safety information:

Smoke Alarms

A continuous set of three loud beeps - beep, beep, beep - means smoke or fire.  Get out, call 9-1-1 and stay out.

A single chirp every 30 or 60 seconds means the battery is low and must be replaced.

All smoke alarms must be replaced after 10 years.

Chirping that continues after the battery has been replaced means the alarm is at the end of its live and the unit must be replaced.

If your home suffers damage from smoke or fire, make sure to call the experts at SERVPRO of Bartow Lakeland Highlands at 863-510-5962 for immediate response.
