Let's talk about a critical safety measure that often goes overlooked: the smoke alarm. 

Neglecting this small device can have severe consequences. 

Stay informed and keep your loved ones safe! 


Smoke Alarm Safety

 Smoke alarms are your first line of defence against fire hazards.

However, they can become ineffective if not properly maintained. 

Dust accumulation, dead batteries, or faulty sensors can render them useless when you need them the most.

 Don't let a silent alarm put your safety at risk! 


Stay Compliant, Stay Safe

As a landlord or letting agent, it's your responsibility to ensure that smoke alarms are in proper working condition. 

Regularly check and test your smoke alarms to confirm they are functional. 

Replace batteries annually, clean them of dust, and replace outdated units. 

Stay compliant with local regulations and prioritise the safety of your home and occupants! 


Smoke Alarm Maintenance

Tenants, remember to inquire about smoke alarm maintenance during your tenancy. 

If you notice any issues or lack of proper alarms in your rental property, inform your landlord immediately. 

Your safety is of utmost importance, and landlords should promptly address any concerns related to smoke alarms.
