How to Get Rid of Smoke Detectors
There are two types of smoke detectors: ionization and photoelectric detectors.
If the detector contains radioactive material, it is required by law to have a warning label on the body of the detector. Look for a warning label or the international symbol for radiation on the back of the detector facing the mounting base.
