How do I maintain my smoke alarms?
The NSW Fire Brigades recommends:
All of your smoke alarms should be tested at least every month to ensure that the battery and the alarm sounder are working.
Every six months
Every six months you should clean your smoke alarm with your vacuum cleaner. This will remove any particles that will hinder smoke alarm performance. If you are using a 9V lead battery you should consider changing it twice a year.
Once a year
If your smoke alarm has a removable alkaline battery, you should replace the battery once a year. If your smoke alarm uses a lithium battery it will not need replacing annually as the battery is inbuilt into the alarm and the entire unit will need replacing every ten years.
Every ten years
Replace your smoke alarm with a new unit every ten years. Smoke alarms do not last forever, the sensitivity in all smoke alarms will reduce over time. All types of smoke alrms should be removed, replaced and disposed of every ten years. To assist in identifying the age of smoke alarms the AS3786 standard requires a serial number or batch number (Clause4.1(c)). This is usually done as a batch number i.e. 2406 may mean that the product was manufactured in the 24th week of 2006. Some manufacturers place the date of manufacture on the smoke alarm and some now place the expiry date on the smoke alarm. The batch numbers or dates are usually on the base of the smoke alarm near the battery compartment.
New South Wales Properties - Smoke Alarms
The Building Legislation Amendment (Smoke Alarms) Act 2005 and the Environmental Planning and Assessment Amendment (Smoke Alarms) Regulation 2006 have been law since 1 May 2006.
Under these laws, all NSW landlords must ensure that their rental property/s are fitted with the required number of working smoke alarms that comply with Australian Standard 3786-1993 and that they are correctly positioned in accordance with the Building Code of Australia. These alarms can be "hard-wired", or powered by a battery (landlord's choice).
Landlords must also ensure each smoke alarm is fully functional and has a new battery installed before the start of a tenancy which includes any New Tenancy & Tenancy Renewals.
In addition landlords must replace smoke alarms before they reach the end of their service life. The service life of a smoke alarm is usually indicated by the warranty offered by its manufacturer.
Tenants are responsible for the maintenance and cleaning of smoke alarms after commencement of occupancy only. It is the landlord’s responsibility to ensure the property meets with the legislation before the start of every tenancy.
Note:- At no time are Tenants responsible for the replacement of batteries in 'hard-wired' smoke alarm systems that have a battery back-up. This is the responsibility of the landlord.
In New South Wales it is not mandatory for existing properties to have Safety Switches installed, however as a risk management and safety measure, it is highly recommended that all homes have a working Safety Switch.
