      Got more questions about our CO & Smoke Alarms service? Read our FAQs about this product

    Think about your living and sleeping quarters, if a fire breaks out above or below them you need to be warned immediately. Question: will the current positions you’ve selected achieve that?
    CO Alarms: Regulations recommend that CO alarms are provided by landlord’s in every room there is a gas appliance. This is also a CO requirement if you have a wood burning or multi fuel stove.

    CO is a silent killer, it’s odourless, colourless and tasteless and without warning can strike with dire consequences. It’s completely undetectable without the help of an alarm!
    Headaches – Nausea – Vomiting – Dizziness – Breathlessness – Chest/stomach pains – Impaired vision, are all associated with CO poisoning!

    Even if you’re not a landlord the preservation of your family’s safety is something you cannot ignore or cut corners on. We all have our own level of ‘acceptable’ risk. The perception is if the risks are lower than the consequences, then shortcuts are usually taken. In this instance the risk is high (fire/poisoning) and hopefully landlords and householders will behave in a safe manner to avoid any fatalities. Get your smoke/CO alarms assessed, replaced or newly installed by serviceteam Ltd. Our smoke detector alarms come with lithium batteries with a life expectancy in the region of 10 years. A CO alarm unit, in the region of 5 – 7 years. Call now if you need assistance/advice with alarm installation or use our online booking process to make an appopitment.

    FAQs

    Q: What is the Optimum Protection in a Property?
    A: You will always be at risk if you’ve not installed any smoke or CO alarms in your property. So to reduce the risk, the detection of smoke or potentially dangerous gases is of paramount importance. We recommend having
    smoke detectors installed on every floor of your property.

    Q:When is the right time to replace my alarms?
    A: Although alarms may get damaged due to various factors over time (especially if portable). Regular checks and changing the battery when alerted to do so will give many years of trouble free protection. The older the alarm the more susceptible the sensors become, so something to bear in mind. Always check with the manufacturer/distributor for further information.

    Q: What level of CO activates the alarm?
    A: The amount of CO causing the alarm to trip varies, as does the ‘trip’ time. See below a range of times and CO levels that will trip an alarm.

    1. If exposed to 400 ppm of CO – Alarm response time between 4 to 16 minutes.
    2. If exposed to 150 ppm of CO, Alarm response time between 10 to 50 minutes.
    3. If exposed to 70 ppm of CO,Alarm response time between 60 to 240 minutes.

    The serviceteam process

    Choose your preferred method? If not now but certainly in the future you’re likely to have something in your home or premises that needs repairing or replacing? When you do we have various ways we can approach your job;
    • Serviceteam completes so many jobs during a year that we can often provide you with a fixed price for the works without attending
    • Other jobs require am enquiry to be raised, so we can compile a quotation. Any photos provided will help us to assess requirements.
    • If your project is large or complex, we will assign one of our qualified engineers to visit and prepare a detailed quotation.
    • Alternatively, you can select serviceteam’s Pay by Time option, certainly if you have an emergency or a “to do” list made up of one or several minor jobs. When on site our engineer will appraise the works required and give an indication of how long the works are expected to take. If we are unable to complete the works within the first visit due to the need for extra time or materials, then we will provide you with a fixed price quotation for the extended works for consideration and authorisation before proceeding.
    Enquiries can be logged through our website, email, WhatsApp or by calling 020 3538 7067.

    What happens next?
    When booking online the details of your job, including your preferred time slot/s will be sent to our scheduling department where within one working hour, scheduling will assign the appropriately qualified engineer to your job. You will also receive an alert via email confirming your appointment. You can view details of your job and see a photo of the engineer who will be visiting. If we are unable to accommodate your job at the time requested, due to high demands on our resources, we will be in touch with alternative dates.

    Good to know about your deal?
    If our tradesperson assesses your job and believes that the scope of the works need adjusting in terms of time/materials and price, they will seek you approval before the work begins.

    How are tradespeople verified?
    All our tradespeople have the relevant trade specific qualifications, have been rigorously screened and come under serviceteam’s insurance policies.

    How do we charge?
    At the point of booking your service we will log your preferred payment details card number etc. Payment will not be taken from your credit/debit card until the works have been completed, usually within 24 hours. Please note credit card transactions are limited to £150.00. maximum. A copy of your paid invoice and a job-sheet will be emailed to you when payment has been approved. Our dedicated Operations Team, based in London, are on call to discuss any current or future jobs as well as managing your project through to completion. If you prefer to pay with a different card to the one used when booking your appointment, please ask our trades person whilst on site to call the office and update your details.

    How do refunds work?
    You are eligible for a refund if you cancel within 14 days of booking or the job has not been started and is not within the cancellation time frame.

    What if I want to cancel the appointment?
    We understand that priorities and plans change, and you may need to rearrange/cancel your booking. Should this be the case please let us know as soon as possible so we can make the necessary alterations to our work schedules. If we don’t receive enough notice of your cancellation or appointment rescheduling within the terms outlined below, then there is a possibility you will be charged a cancellation fee.

    Cancellation windows
    (1.) A charge of £10.00 (ten pounds) will be payable if the service is cancelled within 24 hours. (2.) If the scheduled appointment is cancelled within 12 hours (or less) a 50% charge of the booking fee will be applied (3.) If the appointment is cancelled when engineer arrives at the property (on the doorstep - photos and times will be provided) and within our texted 3-hour time slot the full booking fee will become payable. None of the above charges are profit items and only contribute to the cost of late cancellation/lost business.

    Do I need to provide parking?
    As you know parking in and around London can be problematic and extremely costly (depending on the area) if a parking space can be reserved for our engineer it would be appreciated and help increase efficiency of the service provided (no feeding meters etc or mobile app updating). The quote we have provided does not include the cost of parking and/or congestion charge which will be added to the final invoice (if applicable). Please inform your personal account manager if any special parking instructions like parking permit/free parking can be provided. For properties on the rim of the congestion zone and it is not possible for our engineer to attend without entering/clipping the charge zone, we may need to add the charge to the final bill ? Please check with your personal account manager in advance of your appointment if you’re not sure?
