If you do not know about the importance of having a well-maintained fire sprinkler, Fireline Corporation is here to tell you why its crucial you have this fire system in installed in your commercial business.

Having a fire sprinkler system installed in a building can help you reduce property damage by as much as 67 percent. However, having a fire sprinkler system simply installed isn’t enough to keep your building safe. You have to keep it well maintained.

Fire sprinkler maintenance is easy. The following are ways to keep your sprinklers maintained:

Make A Regular Maintenance Schedule

When a fire sprinkler system is in place, you need to have it maintenance at least four times a year. It should be inspected and serviced at least once a year.

Your fire sprinkler system should be maintenance every time a backflow preventer or water meter is installed. It should be serviced when you remodel your business. It should be serviced when the face changes in public water supply, this often happens in response to water shortages.

Although a professional should inspect your fire sprinkler system regularly, there are some do-it-yourself inspections you can conduct to make sure your sprinklers are kept in top shape. Here are just a few:

– Never attempt to paint sprinkler heads.

– Do not hang anything from your sprinkler heads.

– Do not stack things close to your sprinkler.

– Report signs of damage to your sprinkler to your fire inspector

– Always have your control valves in the open position. Check the control valves once a week.

The benefits you can gain from this regular sprinkler maintenance are insurance benefits, safety reassurance and freedom from liability.

For your insurance you can gain discounts between 5-10% just for having a working and tested fire sprinkler system in your office. Remember, your building does not have a safe sprinkler system if it is not inspected regularly.

You gain safety reassurance from having a sprinkler system that is regularly inspected because you can easily detect when problems arise. You will never have to wait until your building catches on fire to realize something is wrong with your sprinkler system.

Last but not least, you gain freedom from liability. Whenever a building does not have a fire sprinkler system installed, the owner takes the risk of not being covered for damages in the event of a fire. Don’t let your business go under because of payouts for damages or losses of productivity and information.

Don’t take that risk. Install a reliable fire sprinkler system and have it regularly serviced by Fireline Corporation to keep your building protected at all times.
