Chesapeake Protection Services works with commercial businesses throughout the DMV to provide fire sprinkler inspections, system maintenance, and code-compliant inspections. Since Chesapeake Sprinkler Company first opened its doors in August 1978, we’ve seen firsthand the devastating aftermath of poorly maintained life systems. This has included commercial businesses unable to recoup their losses following a devastating fire, resulting in irreconcilable product damage and immeasurable property loss. As a result, we know how critical it is for commercial businesses to stay up-to-date with the National Fire Protection Association’s inspection timelines and promptly schedule inspections.
Fire Sprinkler Inspection: NFPA Mandated and Local Jurisdiction Timelines
You’ll need to schedule a fire sprinkler inspection based upon your local jurisdiction’s code and the NFPA’s mandated guidelines. Your county’s fire department distributes your local jurisdiction’s code. For example, in Anne Arundel County in Maryland, all fire sprinkler systems are mandatory to maintain. Additionally, all fire sprinkler systems must be inspected regularly and tested according to the NFPA 25. The Maryland State Fire Prevention Code and the Anne Arundel County Fire Prevention Code also have strict measures centered around the periodic inspection timeline of your fire sprinkler system. This standard can be weekly, monthly, or annually based on your system and county requirements.
Schedule a Fire Sprinkler Inspection if You See Leaks or Corrosion
You’ll want to schedule an immediate inspection if you see any leaks or corrosion on any of the piping or parts surrounding your fire sprinkler system. Leaks and corrosion can contribute to fire sprinkler system failure, which means that your fire sprinkler system won’t correctly engage during an emergency. Any leaks from surrounding piping can cause water damage, contributing to an improperly-working fire sprinkler system. Additionally, corrosion can signal that your fire sprinkler system’s parts are compromised and need to be replaced immediately. Chesapeake Protection Services can address any repair issues your commercial business needs and follow up with a thorough, code-compliant inspection.
Your Commercial Business is Located in a Historic Building or Has an Aging Fire Sprinkler System
It’s critical for commercial businesses located inside a historic building to schedule a fire sprinkler inspection to ensure that your fire sprinkler system is up-to-date. Additionally, aging fire sprinkler systems need to be inspected to ensure that they are still in working order and code-compliant. By performing a fire sprinkler inspection and addressing any system problems, you can help protect your commercial property and its occupants from a deadly fire outbreak.
