Smoke detectors: everything you need to know
A smoke alarm ensures that you timely receive a clear warning in the event of a (possible) fire. Many smoke alarms have an optical sensor that not only detects fire, but also detects smoke. With the loud alarm, anyone nearby will notice the possible fire and it avoids life-threatening situations.
"A fire will never occur in our house"
Many people think so, but small mistakes can have large consequences. A fire often starts harmlessly, like a flame in the pan or a short circuit. Residential fires often arise from human actions, such as from heating, smoking, cooking or electrical appliances. Although the fire often starts innocently, it has a huge impact on your house. Often there is not only damaged material, but people can be injured or can even die.
Prevention is better than cure
The aim is to prevent people from being injured or dying from the consequences of a fire in your home. Make sure you are on time and your loved ones are safe in the house and buy a smoke alarm in time for every floor of your house. Definitely recommended if when you just moved or entered a new building.
