Whether you’re looking to reach out to Chesapeake Sprinkler Company to provide an estimate, design, fabricate, install, or repair your current sprinkler system — we can be of assistance to your commercial business at an affordable price point. Since a fire protection system actively protects your employees and commercial property, it’s essential to ensure that your sprinkler system is in working condition. Did you know that a sprinkler system, over time, can degrade and potentially become ineffective? Fire sprinkler systems may become damaged due to blockages, leaks, rust accrued from aging, and fixture breakdown over time. Here are a few tips from Chesapeake Sprinkler Company to help determine whether your fire sprinkler system needs repairs.
Fire Sprinkler Systems: Inspections, Testing, and Regular Maintenance Can Help Detect Necessary Repairs
It’s critical to regularly inspect, test, and perform maintenance on your fire sprinkler system. At Chesapeake Sprinkler Company, we can help direct your commercial business into testing your systems on a code-compliant basis that’s centered around the guidelines of your local jurisdiction in Maryland and the National Fire Protection Association’s recommendations. By performing regular inspections, testing, and maintenance, you can quickly catch any signs that your commercial fire sprinkler system needs repairs.
Determining the Age of Your System
Determining the age of your system can also help you determine whether your sprinkler system requires repairs or total replacement. If you have access to your commercial building documentation or have owned your business long enough to know the exact age of your sprinkler system, you can determine when it’s time to replace your sprinkler system instead of opting for repairs. As a rule of thumb, all sprinkler systems from 1920 and earlier must be automatically replaced to protect building occupants and property to the highest degree.
Visible Damage: Leaks, Corrosion, and Pipe Damage
Visible damage to your fire sprinkler system indicates that you need to contact Chesapeake Sprinkler Company for repairs immediately. Any visible damage to the exterior of your fire sprinkler system can render your fire protection system useless, which could result in property loss and death in the event of a fire. If you notice signs of dripping, pipe damage, corrosion, or have received notification of a recall within your fire sprinkler system — contact Chesapeake Sprinkler Company immediately.
