We have just started a new segment on our TikTok page called Tech Tuesday. We will go out to lunch every week and talk to a tech about simple things in a home that homeowners should know.
If you are a new homeowner or just moved out and are renting you may not know simple things that could be very helpful in your home. Our first topic this week was smoke detectors. You should be changing your smoke detector batteries twice a year. A good way to remember to change the batteries is to do it when the time changes. Hard wired smoke detectors also require batteries and you can write the date you changed the batteries on the smoke detector cover to help you remember. Smoke detectors should be replaced every ten years to make sure they are up to date. You should also be testing your smoke detectors about once a month to ensure that if something happens you are keeping yourself and your family safe. They have a test button on the alarm you can push to ensure they are working properly.
Even though SERVPRO of Winston Salem North is always here to help in the event something happens. We also want to educate our customers on what they should be doing in their homes to stay safe.
