Smoke Detector Maintenance

Maintenance of smoke detectors is very important:


  • 1. Test smoke detectors monthly.
  • 2. Install fresh batteries at least once a year. A good way to remember is to change batteries when the clocks are changed in the spring and fall.
  • 3. Never disable a detector by removing the battery because it goes off or "chirps". There is always a reason why it is going off even if you do not see or smell smoke.
  • 4. When the battery starts “chirping”, it is an indication that the battery is low.
  • 5. Clean detectors with a vacuum cleaner. DO NOT remove the cover to clean dust and spider webs from detectors.
  • 6. Never paint any part of a smoke detector.
  • 7. Replace smoke detectors that are 10 years old.
  • 8. Make sure everyone in your household is familiar with the alarm’s sound. Plan an escape route and a meeting place.
  • 9. Make sure there is a smoke detector on every level of your home including the basement

Placement Of Carbon Monoxide Detectors

Proper placement of a carbon monoxide detector is important. If you are installing only one carbon monoxide detector, the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) recommends that it be located near the sleeping area, where it can wake you. Additional detectors on every level and in every bedroom of a home provide extra protection.


When considering where to place a carbon monoxide detector, keep in mind that although carbon monoxide is roughly the same weight as air, it is produced from incomplete combustion of heating and cooking appliances. If this is the case, carbon monoxide will rise with the warmer air.


Homeowners should remember not to install carbon monoxide detectors directly above or beside fuel-burning appliances since they can emit a small amount of carbon monoxide upon start-up.
