smoke detector with smoke SERVPRO is here to help 24/7 no matter what size fire disaster you've experienced. Let us make your fire loss "Like it never even happened".

Being the leader of a household can be both a rewarding and difficult job. Sharing your beloved home with your loved ones will undoubtedly lead to the creation of countless memories and the achievement of many milestones.

It is easy to overlook vital property maintenance when so many other significant events occur within your home. When it comes to preventing household flames, though, consistent upkeep is key to keeping your home and all those precious memories safe.

These straightforward home maintenance chores can help you protect the ones you love most and avert a fire emergency inside your cherished Atlanta property.

Check Your Smoke Alarms

  • Smoke alarms are a firefighting fundamental that every home should have, but simply having them installed isn’t enough to keep you safe. Testing and servicing your smoke detectors is an important chore you should prioritize.
  • Make sure your smoke alarm is installed correctly and maintained often. Remember to test them once a month, change their batteries at least once a year (unless they have 10-year batteries) and replace your alarms entirely every 10 years.

Practice Your Fire Escape Drill

  • Once you’ve created a fire evacuation plan with your family, don’t wait for disaster to strike before utilizing it! You need to walk through your plan ahead of a fire emergency to make sure everyone knows where to go.
  • You should practice your escape plan at least twice a year and make any necessary changes along the way. As they say, practice makes perfect, so the more you perform your drill, the more natural it will feel.

Reevaluate Your Family’s Safety Plan

  • A lot can change in your home as the years go by. You should take these changes into account when looking over your family’s fire safety plan. Just like your evacuation plan, making necessary changes will only keep you and your family safer.
  • New pets, appliances, hazards and even the age of your family members should be considered when looking over your current plan. Making adjustments to your strategy to reflect the changing dynamics of your family will maximize its effectiveness.

If a fire sparks in your Atlanta home, SERVPRO should be one of your very first calls. We’ll erase traces of flames and return you to your happy home before you know it.
