Smoke Alarm Laws in Melbourne

The state of Victoria has legislation that requires all residential properties in Melbourne to have working smoke alarms installed. The key requirements under Victorian law are:

  • All houses, flats, units, and townhouses must have battery-powered or hardwired smoke alarms on every level of the property. This includes owner-occupied and rental properties.
  • Smoke alarms must comply with the Australian Standard AS 3786. Alarms must be less than 10 years old from the date of manufacture.
  • For optimal protection, interconnected smoke alarms are recommended in every sleeping room as well as hallways and living areas.
  • In rentals, landlords must install alarms and tenants must regularly test and clean them. Landlords must also replace batteries annually or as needed.
  • New constructions or renovated homes built after August 1997 require hardwired, 240V-connected smoke alarms with battery backup.

Ensuring smoke alarms meet the legal requirements in Melbourne residences is crucial for early fire detection and safety.

Your Home’s First Line of Defence - Smoke Alarms

Get Faulty Smoke Alarms Repaired or Replaced

Smoke alarms that are improperly functioning or not working put your safety at risk. Our technicians are experts at inspecting, diagnosing issues with, and repairing any type of smoke alarm. We’ll determine if your existing alarms can be fixed or need replacement.

For battery-powered alarms, we’ll replace dead, missing or incorrectly installed batteries to get them operating normally. We can fix wiring problems in hardwired alarms and restore connectivity issues for interconnected alarms. If certain components are defective, we’ll repair or swap them so the alarms function properly.

In cases where smoke alarms are outdated, damaged beyond repair or missing entirely, we’ll replace them with new, long-lasting alarms that meet current standards and codes. We handle all aspects, from purchasing and installation to testing and disposing of old units.

Ensure Smoke Alarms Are Optimally Maintained And Tested

To truly protect your home or business from fire, smoke alarms must be properly maintained and tested regularly. Our technicians perform thorough maintenance services to keep alarms functioning optimally. We manually activate each alarm monthly to verify they detect smoke and warn occupants. Any dead batteries or defective units get replaced immediately.

On an annual basis, we professionally deep clean smoke alarms to remove dust, debris and spider webs that can prevent sensitivity. We also check expiration dates, as alarms need replacement every 8-10 years. If an alarm emits a chirping sound, that’s a sign the battery is dying and needs swapping. During maintenance, we thoroughly inspect for any damage from heat, humidity or age that could hinder alarm operation.

Additionally, we ensure mounting is secure so alarms cannot move out of optimal position. Proactive alarm testing and maintenance keep smoke detection capabilities at peak performance.
