A home fire can move very fast. It takes only 30 seconds for a small flame to become a raging house fire — a fact that makes early detection essential. Smoke alarms are your best defense against a full-on house fire, but simply having smoke detectors isn’t enough. The DiMora Team are real estate experts in the Northville and Novi neighborhoods and we know that its important to strategically place smoke alarms where fires are most likely to occur, and where family members are likely to be in the house. The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) recommends that you have smoke alarms on every level of the house, alarms inside and outside of every bedroom, and that the alarms be fewer than 10 years old. The Home Fire Safety Survey put out by the NFPA takes smoke alarm recommendations even further. In the survey, NFPA advises placing one smoke detector for every 500 square feet of space, especially in larger homes. Check out below to see what sold in Hickory Creek in June 2022:

The association also advises placing kitchen fire alarms at least 10 feet from cooking appliances — this is to prevent heat, steam, or smoke generated by everyday cooking from triggering the alarms. The last thing you want is to disconnect an alarm while cooking, forget to reconnect it, and lose your house to an undetected fire.
