WARNING!!!! Check your CO, smoke and heat detectors after this!

WARNING!!!! Check your CO, smoke and heat detectors after this!

We are seeing more more substandard smoke alarm installations and what is worse is the fact contractors have been passing these installations for the last few years!!!!

What we are seeing includes:

1. Heat and smoke detectors just screwed to the ceiling with no actual mains cabling going to them.

2. Detectors not interconnected

3. Detectors out of date

4. Detectors failing smoke tests (most contractors don’t actually carry out smoke tests)

5. Fake or counterfeit detectors used with no expiry dates or bs numbers

6. Detectors not fitted in correct position mainly in dead spaces where smoke does not gather in.

7. CO detectors with no dates

8. CO detectors with removable batteries

9. CO detectors in wrong positions and not fitted in areas where flue passes through

When you add all these issues to the fact there are still so many properties without even one smoke detector fitted it is becoming a real problem.

We are carrying out more and more fire audits in let properties now to combat this but i feel we should push it more in our own homes.

If you are in any doubt please get in touch and we can put you mind at rest.

Home care cover from £6.95+vat per month.

Our home care packages have really taken off this month, we are seeing more and more enquiries from landlords seeking for our monthly compliance packages and including home care cover as an add on. Our gold package is an all inclusive service which includes unlimited call outs with parts & labour.

As for letting agents we now have a couple on our books which we look after their full portfolios this way. It dramatically makes certificate management more efficient, saves admin time for property managers and saves money for both agent and landlord. It spreads the costs over the 12 months making it much easier to control costs.
