Fire safety is always important. At Yeagers ACE Hardware, we know keeping your family safe is always at the top of your list. Now is a great time to check out your Smoke Detectors in your home to make sure they are working properly and are placed effectively.
Smoke Detector Maintenance
Test each smoke detector monthly by pressing the “TEST” button and listening for the sound.
Be sure to dust around the smoke detector to ensure nothing inhibits the flow of potential smoke into the detector.
Keep a keen ear to any soft chirping beeps from your detector. That is an alert the battery could be low.
Smoke Detector Placement
Be sure to place a smoke detector on each level of your home.
Place a smoke detector in each bedroom and in hallways near bedrooms.
Place at the top of the first-to-second-floor stairway and at the bottom of the basement stairway.
