Fire Extinguisher Services
Is your fire extinguisher leaking, rusty, or damaged?
Fire Extinguisher Inspection
The NFPA requires annual professional fire extinguisher inspections along with monthly inspections that you can do on your own (you can check out the requirements for monthly fire extinguisher inspections here). Confires provides annual fire extinguisher inspection services to many buildings throughout New Jersey, Philadelphia, and Delaware.
Fire Extinguisher Maintenance
Fire extinguishers are pretty durable—usually, an annual fire extinguisher inspection won’t turn up any problems. However, this is not always true, and you may find that your fire extinguisher has bumps, dents, leaks, or rust that can impair its ability to keep you safe at all times.
If you notice a small dent on your fire extinguisher, don’t shell out for a new one, call Confires! We can provide fire extinguisher maintenance that’s as basic or as advanced as you need to make sure your fire extinguisher will keep you safe at all times.

Fire Extinguisher Recharge
Have you discharged your fire extinguisher recently? Even if you only used a tiny bit, you should have the extinguisher recharged right away—just a few milliseconds of lost fire extinguisher pressure can make the difference between a small flame and a devastating and costly disaster.
Fire Extinguisher Repair
Portable fire extinguishers are often your first line of defense to fight limited-sized fires. Confires is fully licensed and certified to repair, inspect, and recharge all types of fire extinguishers. Our fire extinguisher repair services ensure your equipment is ready for use in times of emergency.
Regular inspection and testing are essential to maintaining your fire extinguishers so they operate as they should in case of a fire. A fire extinguisher’s typical life span is five to twelve years, at which time you must test them. If they pass the test, they can be recharged. If you discover one of your fire extinguishers has bumps, dents, rust, or a broken tamper seal, it might not be safe to use if a fire breaks out. Before you assume you must replace the cylinder, contact Confires. We may be able to repair your extinguisher so that you can place it back into service for a lower cost than a replacement would be.

Fire Extinguisher FAQs
Do fire extinguishers need maintenance?
Yes, fire extinguishers need to be inspected and given regular maintenance from a fire protection contractor. A trusted contractor will be able to catch any safety issues during fire extinguisher inspection.
How long do fire extinguishers last?
Most fire extinguishers need to be refilled or refurbished every 5-6 years. Take the time to check your fire extinguishers on a monthly basis in case you need to use it unexpectedly. The last thing you want is to try to use a fire extinguisher that is not in working order.
How do I know if a fire extinguisher is not safe?
It can be difficult to determine if a fire extinguisher is safe, but a common indicator is the pressure gauge. Make sure that the pressure indicator is pointing to the green zone between the two different red zones. If you notice that the indicator is in either of the red zones, this means that the fire extinguisher needs to be serviced as soon as possible.
Why are there so many types of fire extinguisher?
There are many types of fire extinguishers because there are many different types of fire. Each extinguisher is designed to be used on a specific class of fire. It is important to use the right extinguisher to ensure that your actions are as effective as possible and do not further ignite the fire.
