Why does the smoke alarm go off for no reason.

The smoke alarm goes off for nothing. It's summer here, all the doors are open, not a wisp of smoke around, yet it goes off several times a night. My question is can I take this apart and clean the sensor? The unit is a few years old, and we heat with wood so I'm wondering if there's a buildup on the sensor that can be removed. Thanks in advance.

Thanks for the answer.

Checking the batteries was the first thing I did and they all tested good. Right at the top of the scale good, but. I might try putting in a fresh set just in case.

Thanks again.

Change the battery. A low battery will trigger it.
