Keep Your Home Safe this Winter: Check Your Detectors!

Despite the world’s best efforts to produce technology that can detect the presence of dangerous toxic gases as well as fires, thousands of homeowners and businesses are affected each year by fire damage and carbon monoxide poisoning. While fires can ignite at any point during the year, carbon monoxide poisoning is slightly more specified. During the winter months, when our spaces are tightly sealed and well-heated, carbon monoxide poisoning can reveal its ugly head.

To protect yourself and your family, there are proactive steps you can take to make sure your home is as safe and healthy as possible.

  1. Make sure your detectors are working. If they aren’t, they should be! You’ll want to test them regularly so you know they will be in working order if there is ever a dire situation.
  2. Replace your detectors on a regular basis. The National Fire Protection Association recommends that you replace smoke alarms every 10 years. Carbon Monoxide detectors may need switching out every 5-7 years. Got questions about your detectors? Talk to the pros!
  3. Invest in quality detectors that suit your home. There are multiple types of monitors available, so it’s important to make sure you are picking the one that is best for your home and your family’s needs.

At the end of the day, your family’s safety is the number one priority. Call GSM Services today, and our helpful staff will be happy to help you care for your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors as needed!
