Three Reasons Why You Should Repair Your Fire Sprinkler System

Chesapeake Sprinkler Fire Protection Proivder

Maintaining a functioning fire protection system safeguards your business property and employees. Fire sprinkler systems are designed to protect against fire hazards, but they can become less effective over time due to blockages, leaks, rust buildup, and fixture deterioration. Therefore, it is crucial to determine if your fire sprinkler system requires repairs. Here are some tips to help you assess the condition of your fire sprinkler system.

Maintenance And Inspections Can Diagnose Future Repairs

It’s vital to ensure that your fire sprinkler system is in good working condition, as it is crucial in protecting your business from fire damage. At Chesapeake Sprinkler Company, we specialize in guiding you on how to comply with the codes based on the recommendations of the National Fire Protection Association and the laws of Maryland. We offer regular inspection, testing, and maintenance services to help you identify any issues with your commercial fire sprinkler system and make necessary repairs, ensuring your business remains safe and secure.

You Have An Older System

It is important to consider the age of your sprinkler system when deciding whether to repair or replace it. Suppose you have access to the documentation of your commercial building or have been running your company for a significant period. In that case, you can quickly determine the age of your sprinkler system. This information can help you decide whether to continue maintenance or replace the system. It’s worth noting that for buildings constructed in or before 1920, it’s necessary to upgrade sprinkler systems to ensure the safety of building occupants and property.

Visible Signs Of Damage

It is important to note that any visible damage to the exterior of a fire sprinkler system can render it ineffective, leaving the property and its occupants vulnerable in the event of a fire. To ensure safety and prevent loss, it is crucial to promptly seek assistance from experienced professionals, such as those at Chesapeake Sprinkler Company, if you notice signs of leakage, pipe damage, or corrosion or have been notified of a recall in your fire sprinkler system.
