What is Smoke/C02 and Why is it Harmful?
Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Detectors
Do I Need Detectors?
Yes! It is recommended that a smoke detector be in every sleeping room, outside bedroom doors, and at least one smoke detector per floor. Consult with your local fire department for their recommendations on smoke/C02 detectors. The most important thing you can do is to check your smoke detectors for functionality right now, most fires happen in homes with non-functional smoke detectors. Also, when installing new smoke detectors (approximately every 10 years), write the date you installed new detector on the outer casing of said detector. When cleaning your house, vacuum smoke detectors to remove any dust/debris from detector. Remember to keep your dryer exhaust vent clean and free from lint.
