Thanks to recent statistics from the National Fire Prevention Association we know that most home deaths occur during a time of day when people are typically sleeping, between 11:00 pm and 7:00 am. These deaths are especially common at rental properties in Manteca and elsewhere across the United States.
Why do most home deaths occur when people are sleeping? The answer to this question is simple, lack of smoke alarms.
Most bedrooms, especially in a typical multi-family Manteca Property, do not have a smoke alarm because many apartments and multi-family dwellings usually have smoke alarms in the hallway of the unit and sadly the renter will only hear the smoke alarm go off long after it’s too late for them to get out of the home safely.
Smoke alarms cost as little as $5 if you purchase them online and you can easily install them yourself throughout your rental property.
Carbon Monoxide Detector
The next warning device you should have in your multi-family Manteca Rental Property is a carbon monoxide detector.
These detectors are vital for picking up traces of carbon monoxide in a home so the residents can stay safe.
Recent news from the NFPA showed that there are over 80,000 carbon monoxide deaths reported back in 2010 and what’s even more shocking is that between the years 1999 to 2010 more than 430 people per year died from carbon monoxide poisoning.
Carbon monoxide detectors are also very affordable and cost as little as $20 when you buy them online.
Combustible Gas Detector
Last of all, but most important, another vital detector you should have in your Manteca Multi-Family Rental Property is a combustible gas detector.
A combustible gas detector will sound an alarm if gasses have been detected in the air and they are important especially if you cook with gas or use propane in your home.
Combustible gas detectors cost about $25 and are another asset you should have in your rental property to keep your tenants protected.
