how often should the detectors be cleaned and what is the procedure to do that?

Hi, the organization I belong to has your system and one day the smoke detector went off on it's on. The environment is dusty and is used as a social club. That being said how often should the detectors be cleaned and what is the procedure to do that?

Thanks!

Hi @santafebob ,

I would recommend in a typical home that you clean your Smoke Detectors about once a month. But in your case, it definitely wouldn't hurt to do it more often!

If you twist the unit counter-clockwise, you can unmount it. In the back you'll see grills. A vacuum cleaner around that area should do the trick.
