One of the worst things that can happen to your rental home is a house fire. If that fire happens while your tenants are in the home, the results can be beyond devastating. That is why fire prevention is such an important topic. Specialized, your Fort Worth residential property management, is committed to keeping your home and your tenants safe from fires, starting with fire prevention.
Smoke Alarms Save Lives
According to the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) “Three of every five home fire deaths resulted from fires in homes with no smoke alarms (38%) or no working smoke alarms (21%).” Smoke alarms are so important because they are often the first notice someone has that a fire has started in their home. They can wake a sleeping person so they have time to get out of a house fire before it is too late.
It Is the Law
Your property managers in Fort Worth know smoke alarms aren’t just important, they are required by law. It is important to check that all smoke alarms have working batteries and function properly before a tenant moves in. The NFPA reports “Dead batteries caused one-quarter (24%) of the smoke alarm failures.” Smoke alarms should also be checked by you or your Fort Worth residential property management at every regular property inspection, no matter the last time they were checked. If a tenant submits a maintenance request regarding their smoke alarm be sure to respond promptly.
