Chesapeake Sprinkler Company offers emergency repair services 24/7 to handle any immediate issues for your life safety systems. Our fire sprinkler contractors are trained to deal with a vast range of problems that could risk harm in the case of a fire.

When to Schedule a Sprinkler Inspection

Depending on the fire safety system you have installed, you may want to get inspections when the seasons change or the temperature drops. Wet sprinkler systems should have a continuous method of anti-freeze technology to eliminate the chance of the water in the pipeline freezing and possibly exploding. However, getting an inspection when the seasons change, especially before winter, will save you thousands of dollars in prevented damage. Dry sprinkler systems are designed only to allow water in the pipe system when the alarm is triggered. If there are any low points in your dry sprinkler system that accumulate water during the warmer months, those few droplets can freeze and cause a lot of problems. Our fire sprinkler contractors can fix and prevent future accidents with your sprinkler systems. 

When to Schedule a Smoke Alarm Test

Smoke alarms come in a variety of styles, just like fire sprinkler systems. Depending on local laws, the placement of your smoke detectors may be nonnegotiable. With our decades of experience, our fire sprinkler contractors will be able to work with you to design the best layout of smoke alarms possible, including hardwired smoke detectors. You should schedule an inspection for your smoke detectors if they are beeping, not showing a green light, or if it has been a while since their last inspection. Regular testing of your fire safety systems is integral to keeping the occupants of your property safe.
