The team of technicians here at Quinnergy have been carrying out A LOT of fire audits since the new year. We are seeing more and more substandard smoke alarm installations and worryingly other contractors have been deeming these installations as satisfactory for the last few years‼️
What we are seeing includes:
1. Detectors out of date.
2. Detectors failing smoke tests (most contractors don’t actually carry out smoke tests).
3. Fake or counterfeit detectors used with no expiry dates or BS numbers.
4. Detectors not fitted in the correct position mainly in dead spaces where smoke does not gather in.
5. CO detectors with no dates, removable batteries or fitted in wrong positions/not fitted in areas where flue passes through.
When you combine all of the above PLUS the worrying fact that there are so many properties throughout Scotland without a single smoke detector fitted, it is becoming a real problem!!
We are carrying out more and more fire audits in both let properties & private properties.
If you are in any doubt about the fire safety of your home or the detectors in your let property please get in touch with the team on one of the options below and we can put you mind at rest. 😁
