Fire sprinkler systems are key fire safety systems used to reduce and manage the spread of fires within a commercial building decreasing the risks of harm to building occupants and property. Like most systems, the fire sprinkler system in your building requires routine inspections, testing, and maintenance to ensure it’s updated, code-compliant, and functioning properly. Postponing fire sprinkler system inspections can result in costly fines, repairs, and replacements while also putting building occupants at risk of harm in a fire emergency. When it comes to determining if the fire sprinkler system in your building needs an inspection, there are few noticeable signs. Continue reading to identify three signs indicating your fire sprinkler system needs to be inspected.
If you notice visual signs of damage to your fire sprinkler system, such as leaking, corrosion, or damage to your systems pipes and sprinkler heads, you should have your system inspected immediately. Damage to your fire sprinkler system could indicate your system isn’t in working condition and requires repairs or replacement. A damaged or faulty fire sprinkler system is a serious fire hazard that could result in devastating consequences for a building and its occupants if a fire emergency occurs.
If you’ve remodeled or made any physical changes to your building’s structure, your fire sprinkler system needs to be inspected. This ensures that your system is updated to your building’s new infrastructure. It also ensures any damage that may have occurred during the construction process is detected early and resolved before they become dangerous and costly fire hazards for your building, its occupants, and your fire sprinkler system.
