In order to work properly, fire suppression systems must be properly installed and regularly inspected. Regular fire suppression system inspections will ensure that your building, along with the people and any valuable equipment inside it, are protected from fires. Commercial fire suppression systems are vital for keeping kitchens, data centers, and other facilities safe.
Benefits of Fire Suppression System Inspection
Without regular maintenance, you can’t be certain how well your fire suppression system will function in the event of a fire. In fact, having a poorly maintained fire suppression system can be worse than not having one at all, as it may trick you into falsely believing you are protected.
Look at it like a car kept in the garage for 10 years. As a result of sitting idle for so long, different components may not be able to activate when you need them. Regular fire suppression system inspections will prevent this from occurring and help ensure your system will be reliable.
Fire Suppression System Inspection Requirements
The procedures and service frequency involved in a proper maintenance plan are spelled out in your state and local codes, as well as in the manufacturer’s maintenance manual.
