Figures have shown that around 60% of fires in the home start within the kitchen and it is no surprise. With kitchen appliances such as an oven, toaster and electric griddle in the kitchen, it is no wonder that these appliances can all contribute to the start of a fire if care is not taken when using them.
As well as in using kitchen appliances, there is also a risk of fires being caused in other areas of the home. For example, electrical faults such as the wiring within the home can also cause fires along with candles, heating equipment and smoking in the home.
Which is why if you do not have a fire alarm installed in your house, now more than ever is the time to look into arranging a fire alarm installation in your home.

So what are the benefits of a fire alarm installation in London
There are many advantages of having a fire alarm system installed in your home. One of the easiest and most obvious benefits to identify is that with a fire alarm system installed in your home it is able to alert occupants and provide early detection of a fire. The earlier that the fire alarm detects the fire, the faster emergency services will be notified and furthermore, arrive in order to tackle the blaze. Fire alarm systems have also been designed to monitor homes 24/7 so you can be confident that if there is any sign of a fire the alarm system will be able to alert you at any time.
Fire alarm systems usually also come with either a smoke detector or carbon monoxide detector which is particularly important given that carbon monoxide is an odourless, tasteless and colourless gas which can lead to poisoning if not detected early. Carbon monoxide can be produced where there are fuel burning devices and appliances in the home. Examples of these devices include ovens, gas stoves, gas grills, fireplaces, and boilers to name but a few.
Once a fire alarm system has been installed in your home, it is easy to use in that you do not have to do anything for the fire alarms to detect anything hazardous such as smoke or a fire. They are also low maintenance as they only need to have their batteries replaced occasionally when they are dying and they also need to be professionally checked from time to time to ensure that each fire alarm is working perfectly.
