Do I need to put a smoke detector in every room? How many do I need?
At a minimum, smoke detectors should be placed outside each sleeping area and on every level of the home. On floors without bedrooms, detectors should be installed in or near living areas such as dens, living rooms, or family rooms. Remember to vacuum out and test the detectors regularly and don’t forget to change the batteries at least once a year.
