Installing smoke detectors at these locations
Installing smoke detectors in your home is a job you can't put off for safety reasons. Do a thorough inspection of your home. Do you have smoke detectors on at least every floor? It is always a good idea to install smoke detectors in the attic. If a fire breaks out on this floor and you are on another floor, for example because you are sleeping or eating, the smoke alarm will alert you. Mounting a smoke detector in the stairwell is another place that makes sense. This way, the smoke alarm can be easily heard in the rest of the house. It is also essential to hang up smoke detectors on the sleeping floor. By hanging it on the landing, the sound of the smoke alarm can be clearly heard in all the adjoining bedrooms. Hanging smoke detectors in the kitchen may cause a squeal when the potatoes burn. However, the kitchen is also a place where there is a high risk of fire, so hanging up a smoke detector here is no luxury. Smoke detectors are also often hung up in the living room and hallway.
