Check Your Smoke Detectors

Real Estate Agent with DFW FINE PROPERTIES 0506509


With the holidays and colder weather coming, be sure to check your Smoke Detectors. The threat of home fires can be prevented by taking the following necessary steps:


  • Install working smoke alarms on every level in your home
  • Place them inside and outside bedrooms and sleeping areas
  • Test smoke detectors and replace batteries at least once a year
  • Have spare batteries available even when smoke detectors are working
  • Check Carbon Monoxide Alarms
  • Inspect your home for fire safety and/or have it inspected by an Electrician
  • Have an emergency fire escape plan in place
  • Have your Home Furnace serviced and inspected
  • Test your Fire Extinguisher


Remind College Students, Seniors, and loved ones to have their Smoke Detectors checked. If you own a home, know where your Insurance Policy is located. Is your policy in force and are you adequately covered? Store emergency contacts in your Cell Phone and/or where you have them readily accessible in case of an emergency. When the air is dry, fires thrive - check outdoors and keep debris away. The remains of fire isn't pretty. Asthma and fire don't mix. There are many different types of fires. They include house, hotels, airbnb, campers, apartment buildings, commercial buildings, kitchen fires, barbecue fires, grease, car, plane, train, forest fires, and the worst of all are those caused by negligence. Make safety a top priority.

When vacant homes are on the market during fall and winter, 

homeowners are still responsible for home maintenance.

I recently changed out my smoke detectors and I went with ones that also detect carbon monoxide.

These are timely reminders to share.

Homeowners need to replace battery-only operated smoke alarms with units powered by sealed-in, ten-year/long-life batteries with a “hush” feature.

Patricia great advice.  Everything you suggested is simple and easy to do.  The problem is human nature is to procrastinate, and unfortunately procrastination often leads to bad things happening.
