If your building caught fire, would your sprinkler system activate and control the fire? Most of the time, the sprinkler system will do just that. However, there is that small chance your sprinkler system isn’t quite set up for success. Luckily, there are several things that you can do as a building manager to ensure your sprinkler system works when you need it most. As the trusted name in commercial sprinkler maintenance for Cincinnati, we’ve put together tips to help you get started.
For one, sprinkler systems need to be inspected by a qualified commercial sprinkler system maintenance contractor at least once a year. This annual process includes inspection and maintenance of the sprinkler heads, riser pipe, valves, pump and more. If your sprinkler system includes an anti-freeze loop or dry pipe valve, these also need to be checked.
Also keep in mind sprinkler systems are not always designed for all types of tenants. So, if you manage a rental facility, contact your sprinkler contractor any time there is a switch in tenants. The sprinkler contractor can evaluate your system to make sure it is adequately designed to meet the needs of your new tenant.
You should also contact your sprinkler contractor any time a sprinkler head is damaged. Damaged sprinklers have a tendency to not activate when they need to, or activate at an improper time, which can cause a large amount of water damage. Sprinkler repair and inspection should also be a part of your regular sprinkler system maintenance for your business and a trusted contractor like Hard Fire will ensure this type of maintenance is performed.
In the end, fires can occur for many different reasons. But, a properly maintained and designed sprinkler system is almost certain to contain the fire if the need arises.
