Don't forget to check your smoke detectors regularly. Also, we recommend that you change the batteries in smoke detectors twice a year. A good practice is to change them when the time changes in the Spring and Fall. Please remember that wired smoke detectors found in newer homes, also have batteries that need to be changed. If you aren't sure about your system or if you need assistance with deciding where to mount a smoke detector, call us @ 334-358-0202 to schedule us to come out and help.
