Smoke Alarm Testing and Maintenance
Fire detection devices are an essential requirement for any residential, business or real estate property. Investing in smoke alarm testing is mandated by law to ensure that your tenants or family will be alerted if a fire starts in the building. Our affordable, reliable and easy to book services provide peace of mind regarding the safety and protection of the people and assets within the building and assist with fulfilling your obligation of ensuring your property is compliant with all relevant Australian and state-based legislation. Our smoke alarm testing and maintenance services alleviate much of the stress and confusion involved in property management to bring you a streamlined, tailored and trustworthy solution.
Property managers are contractually responsible for making sure that smoke alarms comply with Australian Standards AS 3786, the Building Code of Australia and state-based legislation.
Our annual maintenance and smoke alarm service should be carried out at least annually and includes:
An extensive maintenance check to ensure smoke detectors are clean, within expiry and correctly positioned as dictated by requirements and Law

Requirements in relation to the positioning of smoke alarms in your property are dictated by the Law. Please note that as a result of the relocation or replacement of a smoke alarm, residual damage may be caused from either the relocation/replacement or the original installation.
This damage may vary due to the type of original smoke alarm, the cable hole size and/or existing paint coverage, which may have experienced some discolouration from the smoke alarm or from plastering. If you require repairs, a plasterer/painter can be provided upon request at your own additional cost.
