Functional smoke alarms could save your life if a fire were to break out in your home. To ensure the smoke detectors in your home are working as expected, the post below will share tips on how you can test them.

How to Inspect Your Smoke Alarms

  1. Before you begin the inspection, you need to prepare for it. To that end, you will need to get a ladder, the right kind of batteries, and a smoke detector tester. If needed, ask for your family's help to get through this task faster.
  2. To actually test the alarm, you will need to get on your ladder, open the smoke alarm up, and press the button in it. If the alarm starts ringing, then all is well. If it doesn't, change the batteries and try once more.
  3. Now you know the alarm can sound off, so you need to test its detection. To do just that, you will need the smoke detector tester. Use it and notice if the alarm goes off. If it does, all is well. If it doesn't, change the batteries and try again.
  4. Finally, consider these extra tips:
  • it would be best if you inspected all of the alarms in your home.
  • go through this process on a monthly basis.
  • if changing the batteries doesn't fix the problem, replace the alarm.
  • if your alarms are 10 years or older, replace them.
