The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) recommends that each and every house be
equipped with a smoke detector outside every bedroom and at each and every level including the
basement. Should you close your bedroom door when you're sleeping, it's also advisable to install
a smoke detector inside of the bedroom. They ought to be mounted high on the wall or on the
ceiling. They should not be put in next to windows or doors where drafts can affect efficient

this functionality. Finally, thoroughly clean them frequently with a vacuum cleaner to remove dirt in
