How to Test Your Smoke And Carbon Monoxide Detectors

Test every smoke and carbon monoxide detector in your home on a monthly basis. It only takes a few minutes to ensure your detector is functioning. Just press the test button; after a second, it should make a loud siren or alert.

If you hear random chirps from your detector, that is a signal to immediately replace batteries. 


Please report any faulty or non-working or expired smoke & CO detector(s).

If you have questions or concerns, please feel free to reach out to me. Your safety is our concern.


Carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning can be confused with flu symptoms, food poisoning and other illnesses. Symptoms can include shortness of breath, nausea, dizziness, light headedness or headaches. High level of CO can be fatal, causing death within minutes.

Please make sure to check your smoke & carbon monoxide detectors once a month.
