Smoke Alarm Servicing for Rental Properties. Keeping Melbourne Properties Safe, Compliant and Functional

Number of Alarms test

We inspect the number of smoke alarms in the vicinity and note down whether or not you need to add more to the premises. This is mandatory for smoke alarm safety checks.

Positional Test

We measure the distance between each smoke alarm to ensure that all areas are covered in the event of a fire. All smoke alarm safety checks require this.

Interconnectedness Test

If your smoke alarm system requires it, we check to see if all alarms are set to go off at the same time to ensure that every occupant is alerted of any fire emergency.

Function Test

Smoke alarm safety checks to see if they are in working condition or if they need repairs, replacements, or battery changes. For wired, smoke alarms, we check to see if the electricals are working properly.

Decibel Test

The decibel test ensures that the sound of the alarm is loud enough for all the occupants to hear when triggered. All smoke alarm safety checks include this.

Michael arrived on time and was able to quickly fix the ignition switches on my gas cooker without a problem. So happy that they're working again! I have his number on speed-dial in case I need him again. There are very few technicians who can service a gas Lofra stove now as the company has closed down. Thanks Michael!
