Pro Tech Home Inspections – Fire Safety Practices

*Remember to replace the batteries in your carbon monoxide and smoke detectors twice per year. Ideally, there should be one of each kind of detector on each floor of your residence. To help you remember, simply change out the batteries the same time you reset your clocks to daylight savings time.

*Confirm your home’s fire extinguishers are in working order and that: the extinguisher is easily accessible for anyone in your household; the safety seals are in place; the extinguisher’s pressure gauge is in normal range; and there’s no damage to the extinguisher like leaks or corrosion.
