Smoke Alarm Testing Services in Brisbane
The discovery of fire in the Stone Age revolutionised the world, bringing mankind giant leaps forward and forever changing the way he lived. Today, we use fire in a myriad of different ways, all useful, but all requiring diligent safety management.
The risk of a fire breaking out is a constant threat in kitchens, from electrical appliances and other such factors. Thankfully, there are a number of precautions that can be employed to ensure that in the event a fire occurs, it can be quickly and effectively detected and managed. One such prevention method that has been developed is smoke alarms.
These give ample warning at the first detection of smoke and are an important warning signal to enable a swift response to the break out of fire. The proper maintenance of smoke alarm systems is important to ensure their efficacy during a fire. Failure to do so will result in a smoke alarm that stays silent and fails to give early warning to the danger.
At Jim’s Fire Safety, we carry out smoke alarm testing services in Brisbane, to ensure that your alarm will function correctly when it’s needed.
The Importance of Smoke Alarms
One of the greatest advantages to having a properly functioning smoke alarm is that it will detect smoke long before you can see or smell it, allowing for adequate response time. However, even the most sophisticated smoke alarm will be completely useless in the event of a fire breaking out if it is not serviced and maintained.
In most incidences of fire, people more often than not die from smoke inhalation and toxic fumes rather than from the fire itself. A smoke detector works round the clock to give an early warning, helping to save lives.

How Often Should Your Smoke Alarm Be Inspected?
Hiring an expert to regularly test your smoke alarm may seem expensive, especially as you may go for a long period of time with no incident. However, should a fire break out, your expenses will be more than justified. Without regular testing, you can never be sure that you will be able to catch a fire on time, making testing a worthwhile investment.
Alarm batteries, however, must be checked every month to ensure they are in good working order, and lead or alkaline batteries should be replaced every six months. Furthermore, keeping a smoke alarm dust-free ensures that it remains in good working condition.
