 Detect. Protect.

Protect Your Family & Guests

Having working smoke, heat & carbon monoxide detectors in your home can literally be the difference between  Life & Death. 

We advise on exactly what is required for your home or property e.g. what you need and where to place them.

After that, we can supply, install & test the new system to ensure your home and family are protected.

We supply and fit both standalone, interlinked and smart smoke and carbon monoxide detectors. A smart detector will alert you of a trigger, even when you are in the UK!

And we don't forget about you once the installation is complete - we offer a periodic Smoke & Gas Testing service, plus clean to ensure your alarms are always in tip-top working condition.

Regulations

With the lack of any current Spanish regulation covering installation of detectors in domestic homes, we work with consideration to UK legislation, and adhere to British Standard EN BS 5839-6 (fire) and BS 50292 (carbon monoxide). This ensures the safety of you and your family and to future proof your system against future regulation changes.

  • Smoke alarms in every circulation space on each level, such as hallways and landings.

  • Smoke alarms installed in the room most frequently used for general daytime living purpose.

  • Heat alarms installed in every kitchen.

  • All smoke and heat alarms should be mounted on ceilings & interlinked.

  • Carbon monoxide alarms to be fitted where there is a carbon-fueled appliance (e.g. boiler, log burner, open fire or heater).

Smoke, Heat & CO Detector Testing

Smoke & Carbon Monoxide detectors are life-saving pieces of equipment. If you are a HomeMaid client then you already have the peace of mind knowing that we regularly test your batteries as part of our scheduled inspections.

But pressing the test button on the detector only checks the circuitry and the battery - it does not test that should smoke or gas enter the chamber, it will actually trigger a response and activate the alarm.

To fully test an alarm, a simulated smoke/gas test is required.

We provide an Inspect, Clean and Test (ICT) Service:

  • We first inspect the alarm unit for any visible damage, or wear and tear. 

  • Dust and grease can greatly impair the detectors sensitivity. We clean the inside chamber using compressed air, and wipe clean the outside of the unit.

  • We then use safe and toxic free simulated smoke/gas (depending on the test being undertaken) to fully test your alarm.

  • Finally we issue a test certificate as evidence for compliance and audit, which could help in the event of an insurance or liability claim.

Make Sure Your Alarm Works When It's Needed

Extinguishers

Fire Extinguishers & Blankets

If you rent your property out in the Murcia region, it's a stipulation of your tourist licence that you must supply a working fire extinguisher. We can supply and fit an extinguisher that meets the requirement.

They can be used on solids (Class A), spilled petrol (Class B), gases (Class C), and around electrical equipment.

We can additionally supply and fit a fire blanket. Fire blankets work by smothering a fire and starving it of oxygen, making them ideal for use in kitchens on fires involving cooking oils, saucepans, frying pans etc.They are also highly effective at extinguishing fires on a person's clothing by wrapping the fire blanket around them. 

WARNING: If a fire has already taken hold in a room, filling the room with fumes, do not attempt to extinguish the fire. Leave the room immediately, close the doors behind you and alert other people in the building, evacuate to a safe place and call the emergency services.

We undertake a FREE home survey and then provide you with a recommendation report and a no obligation fixed quote.

Fitting is from just €15 per device*.

We supply and install FireAngel safety devices. FireAngel are a UK registered company and home safety market leaders in manufacturing advanced, high-quality and BS Certified smoke, heat and carbon monoxide (CO) alarms. FireAngel are the brand of choice for over 90% of the UK’s Fire & Rescue Services.

 

FireAngel are not the cheapest devices on the market - and for good reason. We won't fit or trust low-cost, cheaply made detectors. But with 10-year tamper-proof, sealed Lithium Batteries and a 10-year manufacturer's warranty, they represent outstanding value for money over the life cycle of the product, and even more importantly, are a name that can be trusted.

ELECTRICAL APPLIANCE TESTING

PAT

Why Test Your Electrical Appliances?

 

Every year, over half of accidental domestic fires in the UK are caused by electricity, mostly by faulty or misuse of electrical products.
 

Often, electrical appliances found in Spanish properties are inherited from previous owners and are frequently low-cost devices purchased from import stores. 
 

Damp or humidity can damage electrical wiring whilst properties remain unoccupied.
 

If you are renting your property out to paying guests, you are required to ensure that all the electrical appliances you provide are safe and properly maintained. 

In-service Inspection and Testing of Electrical Equipment (PAT testing) is the best way to safeguard your family and guests staying at your property.

We now offer a domestic PAT Testing service with compliance certificate for just €55 (+ IVA) for up to 20 electrical appliances. Contact us for further information.
