Smoke alarms – they’re the law!
At Smarthouse, we specialise in the protection of residential rental properties through the annual maintenance of smoke alarms. We work with some of the most established and trusted real estate agents across Victoria, servicing thousands of rental properties each year from rent rolls of all sizes.
We are the preferred smoke alarm supplier for the REIV
We are the only smoke alarm supplier working in partnership with the REIV as their Preferred Supplier, Victoria wide. The REIV recommends that agents engage an independent contractor to maintain smoke alarms in rental properties. Proper testing of smoke alarms requires more than just pushing a button. And with 7 out of 10 smoke alarms not operating properly in the event of a fire, it’s just too important to ignore. There’s no need for you to lug around tools and ladders – we’ll do it all for you.
You already know the importance of making sure smoke alarms in your properties are maintained by a professional to protect your landlords and tenants – but do you know how Smarthouse is different to other smoke alarm services?
