The Importance of a Fire Suppression System Inspection
Do you remember the last time you had your fire suppression system inspected? Fire suppression systems are critical for keeping your commercial kitchen, data center, or other facility safe from fire without the potentially damaging effects of a water-based fire sprinkler. In order to do that, however, it’s important that they be frequently tested to ensure they’ll activate when necessary to keep your building safe.
If you can’t remember the last time you had your fire suppression system tested, it’s probably been too long. Call Confires today for fire suppression system inspection today—888-228-0917 or click here.
Why is fire suppression system inspection important?
The only thing more dangerous than not having a fire suppression system installed in your building is having a system that you think is working when it’s not. With one, you hopefully know what to do during a fire—or at least the thought is in your head! With the other, however, you may expect to stay protected, only to find that a fire costs you your entire business.
For most businesses, devastating fires are rare—you may never see one. But as a result of sitting idle for so long, parts of your fire suppression system can wear out due to underuse, then fail to activate in the event that you need them. A fire suppression system inspection will ensure that your system is checked frequently for signs of damage like this so it will always work when you need it to.
When should you have your fire suppression system inspected?
Fire suppression system inspection is so important that we’d say if you’re not sure how often to schedule it, err on the side of caution. That said, there are some guidelines you can follow if you don’t want your fire protection company to be over at your building every day:
- Follow the manufacturers’ recommendations – every fire suppression system we install comes with a recommended maintenance schedule, so if Confires installed your system, we urge you to keep up with that schedule. It is there to keep you, your employees, and your building safe.
If you have an older system and are not sure what the recommended schedule is, give us a call. We’ll set you up on a maintenance schedule that will ensure maximum protection.
- Get an inspection whenever the building changes hands – if you have recently acquired a new facility, it helps to have fire suppression system inspection as soon as possible. If you’re in the process of acquiring a new facility, make sure you find out if a new fire suppression system will need to be installed. At Confires, we can expertly design a fire suppression system for any building. If the building you’re purchasing needs an upgraded system, call us.
