It is essential that every domestic and commercial building is fitted with working fire detection equipment.
Minimising deaths and damage is at the forefront of everybody’s needs. Should your fire alarm get damaged or become faulty, it is paramount that it gets repaired without delay.
It is never a good idea to delay the repair of a fire alarm. Fires often occur unexpectedly, even in the middle of the night. Without an alarm you are defenceless.
Does My Fire Alarm Need Repairing?
There are some obvious reasons that your fire alarm is in need of repair. Although fire alarms are made to last for over ten years, it is possible that an element of it could stop working, which could put you at risk.
Common causes of faulty fire alarms include:
- Dead batteries
- Dust accumulation
- Water seepage
- Loose wiring
- Alarm sounding in absence of fire/smoke
- Device damage
Check Batteries Regularly
Dead batteries are among the most common reasons for an alarm's failure to detect fires. It is recommended that fire alarm batteries are checked regularly. This can be done easily by checking the light indicator on the alarm, or pressing the button to see whether it sounds.
If it doesn't, try replacing the batteries and see if the device works.
If you are having no luck with new batteries and are still having problems with your fire detection system, call us or email us and one of our trained electricians will be on hand to assist.
London Electrical & Fire generally recommend alarms that are wired into the building’s electrical system as this makes them far more reliable than ones that rely on batteries.
Repair or Replacement?
Expert electricians at London Electrical & Fire are available to come to your premises if you are experiencing problems with your device. Our electricians will inspect the device, as well as other systems in the property, in order to identify the cause of the problem.
If the problem can be fixed, we will provide you with a quote and carry out necessary repairs. If however, the device cannot be fixed, we will suggest a suitable replacement. Either way, you will have a functioning fire alarm as soon as possible.
