Did you know that three out of five deaths caused by house fires are due to a lack of or faulty smoke alarms? This is why it’s mandatory by law for most homes to have a smoke alarm installed. These devices are not a luxury but a necessity that can save your life in case of a fire.
House fires are a serious danger, especially at night when we are asleep and less aware. Our sense of smell is not as strong while we sleep, which is why smoke alarms are crucial. They can alert us with sound and wake us from a deep sleep. It is important to remember that the toxic gases from a fire can be more harmful than the flames.
It’s important to keep in mind that outdated smoke alarms can be just as dangerous as not having one at all. Contact Star Plus Electrical to install your smoke alarms. You will sleep a little easier knowing that your home is fully compliant and that your family has the assurance of fully operational smoke alarms.
