Smoke Detector Safety Tips:
- Test the detector monthly: Testing the detector monthly ensures it is working to the best of its abilities.
- Replace the batteries once a year: Changing the batteries in a smoke detector annually keeps your home safe by making sure your detector is working correctly.
- Keep it free of dust: Take care of the smoke detector by keeping it clean so it can work at full efficiency.
There are two types of smoke detectors known as ionization smoke detectors and photoelectric smoke detectors. Photoelectric detectors are more effective to seek out large fires because they sense the fire with light sensors. Smoke passes through the light beams and the sensor is activated to make the alarms go off. The ionization smoke detectors are faster at responding to smoke compared to the photoelectric detector. When the ionization process is triggered within the detector, it turns on the sounds of the alarm.
