Its that time of year again. The clocks have been moved forward and we are now closer to summer. If you have a holiday home its important that you protect everyone who may stay by maintaining your smoke alarms.
1. Clean smoke alarms to ensure they are free from dust and cobwebs.
2. Test smoke alarms to make sure they are operational.
3. Replace batteries if they are more than 1 year old.
If you own a rental property, make smoke alarms a part of the property inspections performed at your property. You are protecting a major asset and the safety of your tenants. We recommend you go a step further a supply smoke alarms and replacement batteries to all properties you own.
