Smoke Detectors for Your San Francisco Home
Old Smoke Alarms are Radioactive
We can learn from the city of Piedmont, California, where the Fire Marshal no longer allows ionization smoke detectors. If you look hard you will find this warning in very small type:
"Contains Radioactive Material Americium 241 1.0 Microcurie"San Francisco still allows the ionization unit, which does a fairly good job in living areas, but tends to cause false alarms near bathrooms and kitchens. In over half the houses I go into, I find the smoke alarms have been deactivated, are missing a battery, or the battery connection has been unplugged. New smoke detector units are photo-electric, so shower steam, cooking odors, and tobacco smoke won't cause false alarms.
The new units I provide offer several advanced features:
- 10 year lithium-ion battery
- LED light sensors
- Hush button which allows alarm to be silenced for 15 or 20 minutes
According to a recent article in the San Francisco Chronicle, the Superior Court allowed a landowner to plead no contest to three counts of involuntary manslaughter for failing to maintain a working smoke alarm in a rental home.
