    Cleaning smoke detectors I have a building that has 30 - 40 10 year old
    smokes. I was thinking of taking them down and cleaning them with a can of
    dry air. It will take some time and a 25 ft pole and attachment.
    Some are 8 ft some as high as 30 ft.

    I took one down to see the name ect and it didn't seam as dirty as I would
    have suspected.

    Should I waste my time? In this case Its a volunteer job

    I wouldn't bother trying to clean ten year old smokes, they should be
    replaced

    They should be replaced right about now.

  4. Replace them. Smoke detectors should be replaced
    at least every 10 years anyway.
