Why does my smoke alarm randomly keep going off, and how to stop it?

This is mainly due to something setting it off ie. Dust partials, dust mites, bugs, dirt. To avoid this it is recommended to clean your s/a every month, the best way to do this is by getting a long nose vacuum and vacuum the outside of the alarm trying to get in all the gaps. *NOTE DO NOT OPEN ALARM AND DO THIS AS IT MAY DAMAGE THE ALARM. Spray bug repellent on a cloth and wipe the ceiling around the smoke alarm to act as a future bug deterrent. Test the smoke alarm after cleaning.
