Are you moving into a new home? Whether that’s the case or it’s just been awhile since you’ve even thought about your smoke and carbon monoxide (CO) detectors, now is the time to check them. At least, if you want to have a safe home!
The NFPA (National Fire Prevention Association) set forth guidelines stating that the typical three-bedroom, two-bathroom house with a basement and an attic should have at least nine smoke detectors and four CO detectors. But even if you have this recommended number in your home, it doesn’t mean much if they aren’t working!
