Commercial and Domestic CO Smoke Alarm Installers
The domestic rental market has in place a number of regulations contained within the Housing Act 2004 to safeguard the occupants of a property. Any landlord who fails to comply with these improvements can, in the event of a fire/heat accident, be liable for prosecution.
The legislation states that any electrical work, fire safety requirements, heat measures, and any heat/fire-related maintenance services must be up-to-date before a tenant/s takes up occupancy in any rented property. It’s important for landlords to be up to date with the ever-changing legislation to ensure protection for their tenants and the fabric of the property.
The number of carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning incidents has increased in recent years. Therefore, all landlords must take appropriate measures/actions to eliminate the risks associated with CO. Since 2015; it has been an essential requirement for any room containing a solid fuel combustion appliance such as a coal fire or wood stove to have a CO smoke alarm installed. As of 1 October 2022, the extended CO regulation has now been extended to all rooms containing a fixed combustion appliance of any fuel type. This edition highlights the importance of individuals’ safety and will significantly increase protection from CO poisoning and fire.
