Here are some smoke alarm safety tips from the National Fire Protection Association:

Smoke Alarm Safety
  • A closed door may slow the spread of smoke, heat, and fire. Install smoke alarms in every sleeping room and outside each separate sleeping area. Install alarms on every level of the home. 
  • Smoke alarms should be interconnected. When one sounds, they all sound. 
  • Large homes may need extra smoke alarms
  • Test your smoke alarms at least once a month. Press the test button to be sure the alarm is working.
  • Today’s smoke alarms will be more technologically advanced to respond to a multitude of fire conditions yet mitigate false alarms
  • When a smoke alarm sounds, get outside and stay outside
  • Replace all smoke alarms in your home every ten years

How Can I Tell if My Toilet is Leaking in Freeport?

12/6/2022 (Permalink)

Toilet bowl flushing shown. We restore water damage 24-hours a day in Walton County.

Our local Destin, Seaside, and Freeport teams restore water damage throughout the year in Freeport. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) reports that homes in the United States waste more than one trillion gallons of water each year! Here are some tips from the EPA for detecting toilet and other leaks:

Checking for leaks

  • Place a drop of food coloring in the toilet tank to check for a toilet bowl leak. You have a leak if the color shows up in the bowl within ten minutes without flushing. 
  • Most leaky showerheads can be fixed by ensuring a tight connection using pipe tape and a wrench. If you are replacing a showerhead, look for one that has earned the WaterSense label.
  • A good method to check for leaks is to examine your water use. A family of four likely has a serious leak problem if its winter water use exceeds 12,000 gallons per month.
  • Check your water meter before and after a two-hour period when no water is being used. You probably have a leak if the meter does not read exactly the same.
