Did you know that smoke alarms have a best before date?? The technology inside your mains powered or battery smoke detector begins to break down over time and
becomes less reliable.
You can visually see the best before date on the side of most, if not, all of the smoke detectors installed in this country. A brand new smoke/heat/C.O detector is good for 10 years.
With the pandemic that is COVID19 forcing us to remain in our homes, now is a great time to visually inspect our alarms and check that they are still within their recommended life span. I know I will be!
