Maintain Your Sprinkler System for Fire Damage Prevention

In the event of a fire in your commercial facility, it is critical to have several key safety elements including an emergency plan, fire extinguishers and a working sprinkler system. When a fire causes your sprinklers to go off, this system will help to prevent much further fire damage and risk to your employees and property. Having a properly functioning fire sprinkler system in your facility will help to lessen the stress and downtime of your business and get you back on track in a matter of days.

  • Ensure that your sprinklers are tested annually, and that routine maintenance is performed.
  • Sprinklers are designed for particular types of buildings, such as how many floors there are and the square footage of the business. When installing sprinklers, you should choose the system that fits the standards of your building.
  • Control valves should be inspected weekly.
  • The National Fire Protection Association requires that pipes be checked for signs of clogs every five years.
