“By pushing & holding the test button for a few seconds, your smoke alarm should produce a loud noise. This is commonly referred to as a “PUSH TEST” & is frequently conducted by Landlords & Real Estate Managing Agents in residential & holiday rental properties who mistakenly think it is sufficient to meet Legislative requirements”

SOME LANDLORDS & MANAGING AGENTS BELIEVE A “PUSH TEST” IS ENOUGH

A PUSH TEST IS NOT SUFFICIENT FOR LEGISLATIVE SMOKE ALARM COMPLIANCE

HERE IS WHY IT ISN’T!

  • The button test only ensures the batteries are working. It does not prove the alarm is actually functioning, will operate accurately in the event of a fire, alert tenants & save lives
  • There is little or no paperwork or documentation to cover you if there is a fire, insurance claim paperwork or any other dispute
  • Having a Smoke Alarm that doesn’t work can & has been a Fatal Mistake

WHAT DOES THE CENTRAL COAST SMOKE ALARM SERVICES TEST ACHIEVE MORE THAN JUST A PUSH TEST?

  • Checking the expiry date of the smoke alarm – after 10 years from date of manufacture the alarm has expired, is unsafe & must be replaced
  • Artificial Smoke testing
  • Is it loud enough to wake sleeping household members? This requires a Decibel (volume) reading of over 85 tested with specialist equipment
  • Checking if the positioning of the Smoke Alarms are effective & that there are enough Smoke Alarms throughout the house or business to detect smoke in all areas of the building
  • Maintaining the cleanliness of the unit
  • Certificate of Compliance emailed to your agency for your records
  • Ensures your agency has precise, detailed & complete documentation of the systems you have in place to ensure legislative requirements are fulfilled
