Smoke Alarms

Smoke alarms are key elements in fire situations. They can save lots of lives, so it’s absolutely crucial to check their status periodically and to ensure that they are correctly installed and repaired.

In addition to this, in the UK it’s a legal requirement that every commercial or public building has a fire alarm and to get these checked and maintained on a regular basis.

Nevertheless, don’t be afraid, these alarms need very little maintenance and a few minutes checking to make sure that it’s working properly. Despite this, many people don’t have them installed yet. At Electrician London, we want to ease the installation and maintenance process in order to ensure that everyone has access to them. 

The number of smoke alarms to fit in your home depends on your own circumstances. Our suggestion is: the more, the better. You should try to cover all areas in where the risk of fire is higher, such as hallways and kitchens. But a fire can start from anywhere, so the more smoke detectors you have, the more protected your house is.

Our qualified engineers can advise you how to maintain them for optimal function. However, most of them come with a battery which will last up to ten years, so once we’ve installed them they will work correctly for a long period of time.
