There are over 940 deaths reported each year from homes that do not have smoke detectors in all necessary locations throughout the house. Even more alarming, over 500 deaths occur each year in properties where smoke detectors are present, but failed to operate due to improper or inadequate maintenance. According to a National Fire Prevention report from 2015, 53% of smoke detectors in properties subject to fire failed to operate and warn the occupants due to improper or inadequate maintenance. The residential death rate was reported to be twice as high in homes with non-functioning smoke detectors. Don’t let this happen to you. HomeSmiles technicians replace all internal back up batteries and also test your equipment. Also, if additional smoke detectors are required, our HomeSmiles technicians will install them for you on the day of your appointment. (Rates apply-See website pricing for more information.)
