Protecting your business from fires is serious business. That’s why you’ve invested the time and money to install a state-of-the-art fire suppression system. Once you have the technology in place, you’re protected for the life of the equipment, right?
Even the best fire suppression systems need to be inspected on a regular basis. If there is anything worse than being completely unprepared for a fire it’s believing you’re prepared and then having your system malfunction and losing everything.
So how do you know it’s time to schedule a 360 Services 36 point inspection for your fire suppression system?
You Can’t Remember Your Last Inspection
Thankfully, serious fires are rare. But the fact that you’ve never been through one can lull you into a false sense of security. It can feel like your fire suppression system is doing its job because you’ve never had a fire. Of course, that’s not the case.
If you don’t remember the last time you had your system inspected, or if you know for a fact that you never have, it’s time to do it now. Having a trained technician examine your system thoroughly is the only way – short of a fire breaking out – that you will know your system is in good working order, doing its job to protect you, your employees, and your investment.
Maybe you’ve been doing inspections on your own every once in a while. Unless you’ve had as much training as our experts, there’s a good chance you missed something. For instance, did you take off your fire extinguisher’s discharge hose and test its conductivity? Well, we do. What about its valve assembly? Did you check it out and make sure it’s working efficiently? A clogged or faulty valve can waste precious minutes in the event of a fire. We have 34 more inspection points where those came from. We won’t miss anything.
Your System Manufacturer Says So
When 360 Services installs a new fire suppression system, it comes with the manufacturer’s suggestions as to how often you should have your system inspected. This is true no matter which fire suppression system you choose. If you adhere to these manufacturer recommendations and schedule 36 point inspections as suggested, it will be easy to stay on the right track and have the peace of mind that comes with a well maintained fire suppression system.
You’re New to This
We realize that not every business owner or manager has been with the same building or same company for their entire lives. If you’ve just purchased a building or moved your business to a new location, you should have the fire suppression system inspected. You may even want to insist on an inspection before moving in. A thorough evaluation will give you a much clearer picture as to where your fire suppression system stands, what kind of shape its in, and whether it – or any of its parts – will need to be replaced soon.
The bottom line is that our 36 point fire suppression equipment inspection is just one more way that 360 Services can help protect your business. With regular inspections, you can be assured that your system is in good working order and that should you face the worst, it will do its job.
