How often….

….do you test your smoke alarms?

You should test all alarms in your premises weekly, by pressing the test button until the alarm sounds. If it doesn’t sound, you should check the battery or replace the alarm.

It is also important to keep them clean by removing any dust or fluff from around the alarm every six months, as well as changing the batteries every twelve months. Smoke alarms should be fully replaced every ten years – even if they appear to still be in working order.
