ServiceMaster by ARTec reminds you to check your smoke detectors when daylight savings time ends!
It’s hard to believe, but in less than a month an hour of daylight will be cruelly snatched away from us and tucked into the sacred “Satchel of Pointlessness.” While Daylight Saving Time may be a modern day anachronism, it’s an anachronism we in America doggedly cling to, well, except for the enlightened people living in Arizona and Hawaii.
Daylight Saving Time officially comes to a screeching halt at 2:00 AM on Sunday, November 2. So there, you can’t say you weren’t warned. And, while some find Daylight Saving Time to be a nuisance, it does serve a few useful purposes, not the least of which is allowing people to sleep in an extra hour for one day in late autumn. It also serves as an excellent and timely reminder to check all the batteries in your smoke detectors and carbon monoxide alarms. Yes, those unobtrusive white hockey pucks that otherwise go ignored most of the year nevertheless do require occasional maintenance. And, what better time to conduct such minor and routine maintenance than after enjoying an extra hour of sleep?
After all, checking and replacing smoke detector batteries is a very minor price to pay in the name of fire damage prevention, and maintaining carbon monoxide detectors is a minor price to pay in the name of death prevention.
