How often should I check or replace smoke alarms?
Is your smoke alarm still working? Smoke alarms must be maintained! A smoke alarm with a dead or missing battery is the same as having no smoke alarm at all.

A smoke alarm only works when it is properly installed and maintained. Depending on how your smoke alarm is powered (9-volt, 10 year lithium, or hardwired), you will have to maintain it according to the manufacturer's instructions. Please call 337-462-8929 for more information.
