Why go to the Top of the Smoke?
Burning food on the stove. If you’re not paying close enough attention to the dinner you have cooking on the stove, and it begins to burn, it may set off your smoke detector. There doesn’t even have to be actual smoke in the air, just a hint of burnt food can set it off, and let all your dinner guests know that there’s a problem. Chemical odors. Strong chemical odors like ammonia or paint fumes can set off a smoke detector. They don’t like those heavy smells any more than we do, and they aren’t afraid to complain about it. Dust. If you’re doing some remodeling, or your smoke detector is located in an area that has a lot of dust in the air for any reason, this can set off your smoke detectors. Opening up your alarm and carefully cleaning the insides can help eliminate these problems. Steam. Just like humidity, steam from a shower or water boiling on the stove can set off those smoke detectors as well. There’s a fire in the house! Be careful not to assume that just because you don’t see or smell a fire, that your smoke detector is giving a false alarm. Smoke detectors often will sense electrical fires or other hidden fires before you do. If none of the other items on this list are present and the alarm continues to sound, assume that there is a fire starting somewhere in the house. Don’t ignore it and go to bed![wpsm_button color=”green” size=”big” link=”https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B9Fa6tAcZBhtYU1tUVpVc1ZlWlk/view?usp=sharing” icon=”none” class=”” target=”_blank”]Click Here To Download[/wpsm_button]
