Check Your Smoke Detectors to Prevent Fire Damage in Chicago


    ServiceMaster Restoration by Simons recommends checking your smoke detectors when you change your clocks this fall.

    In the midst of the hustle and bustle of jobs, colder weather in the Midwest, and preparing for Halloween and Thanksgiving, there’s a sweet little gift our government decided to give us a long time ago: Daylight Saving Time ends. At 2:00 am on Sunday, November 2nd, we all get to “fall” back for another hour of sleep, one that we probably are starving for. Daylight Savings means more than an extra hour of sleep; It’s also a great reminder to check your carbon monoxide alarms and smoke alarms. At ServiceMaster Restoration by Simons, we want to remind you to be safe as the weather gets colder and you spend more time indoors. In the event of a fire incident, we’ll be there on the spot with our fire restoration crew.

    As we spend more and more time inside during the fall and winter months, it’s especially important to check smoke alarms and carbon monoxide alarms. House fires increase as the weather gets colder. A properly functioning smoke alarm is a smart protective measure for yourself, your family, and your house. Your carbon monoxide alarm is important as well. Carbon monoxide is clear and odorless. Excessive amounts will make you feel dizzy, weak, nauseous, and can eventually lead to brain damage or death. If you experience fire damage or smoke damage, get in touch with ServiceMaster Restoration by Simons. We’ll take care of fire and smoke restoration to make your home livable and your air breathable.

    This year, use Daylight Savings as a reminder to check your smoke alarm and carbon monoxide alarm. If you require fire damage or smoke damage restoration service, give us a call at 773.376.1100. We have a 24-hour emergency services hot line, so we’ll be there to help you right away.
