Nothing can set your teeth on edge as a smoke alarmthat goes out when there is no emergency. You may be tempted to remove the batteries, but it can make your home a real fire.
This is why your smoke detector goes away and how you can handle false alarms.
How smoke detectors work
There are two different types of smoke detectors. Ionization smoke detectors have two plates with an electric charge that flows between them. When something ̵1; like smoke – flows between these two plates, the electric charge is interrupted and the alarm is triggered.
Photoelectric smoke detectors have a small light inside. When something enters the detector and reflects the light on a sensor, the alarm is triggered.
Notice how both these types of detectors really do not detect smoke. They are triggered by foreign objects that interact with parts within the detectors. This means that anything that can flow into your smoke detector, such as steam, steam, smoke and large vacuum cleaners, can trigger your smoke detector.
That's why it can go off when you cook, even if you don't burn anything. The steam coming from the food triggers the alarm. Hair spray and other aerosols sprayed near the detector can also put it off.
How to handle
The most obvious way to cope with annoying smoke detectors is to take them down. But it leaves you vulnerable if there is a real fire and is not sure at all .  See here:
