FIRE inspection is inspecting the home for proper placement and functionality of all smoke detectors. Smoke detectors are fundamental fire protection equipment, and they’ve saved innumerable lives by providing early warning of fires. National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) research
reveals that 40% of home fire deaths happened where no smoke alarms were present, and 17% occurred when the smoke alarms were not functional. You’re probably familiar with some best practices
in residential smoke detector maintenance, like replacing detectors every 10 years and checking the battery every month by pressing the “test” button. The Happy Property Inspector have additional requirements. And remember, the test button only checks whether the detector has power. According to the same NFPA report, only half of smoke alarm failures were the result of dead or missing batteries or a lack of hard-wired power. About one-fifth (21%) of all alarms did not activate because of unclassified reasons, a lack of cleaning, or a defective unit. Battery and other power-source tests are not enough to guarantee safety. The only way to test a smoke detector is Smoke in a can. This simulated smoke is the perfect solution.
