      Smoke alarms are essential we all know that but on odd occasions they go off for no reason. Tonight my smoke alarm decided it was going to start going off. Checked and there is no sign of a fire anywhere so I decided to take the cover off the smoke alarm and check for dust.

      As I take the cover off a little spider falls out, I blew the smoke alarm itself to remove any dust as well and put the cover back on and so far no more noise.

      Have you ever had your smoke alarm go off for no reason?

      Yep, it's happened to me a few times. Very annoying :( .

      (Also, I have to admit, I misread the title as 'Snoke Alarms'. Luke Skywalker could probably do with one of those :p !)

      I think the batteries need to be changed in ours, but I hope when we change them a spider don't come out.
