Spring Cleaning Checklist: Fire Safety Inspection
Fire Safety Inspection
Your spring cleaning checklist likely includes maintenance and inspection tasks. After a long winter, it is important to make sure that your building is functioning efficiently. For the sake of your company’s safety, be sure to add a fire inspection to your spring cleaning checklist.
Benefits of Inspection
If a fire starts in your building, it can lead to devastating losses. If a fire starts in an unstaffed area and the smoke detectors fail, your assets could be lost before anyone notices. A fire safety inspection will check for any and all fire hazards in the building, including broken smoke detectors.
Fire alarms warn your staff, guests, and others in the building to evacuate to safety. Sprinkler systems can dampen the flames and decrease potential damage. When you invest in an inspection, you have the advantage of experienced technicians ensuring that your system is in order. We can provide you with peace of mind and guarantee that your building is fire code compliant.
Expectations During Inspection
During a comprehensive inspection, expect your technicians to arrive on time. The technicians will inform you of what will happen during the inspection and then proceed to test all sprinkler systems, fire alarms, and fire protection equipment. We also provide a review of your equipment following the inspection. If any paperwork is necessary, that can be filed afterward.
The types of systems that may be checked during an inspection include:
- Fire extinguishers
- Fire sprinkler systems
- Fire pumps
- Fire hydrants
- Elevator recalls
- Fire alarms
Without a professional inspection, you could miss a life-threatening problem with the system.
Commercial facilities and warehouses require adequate fire protection all year round. Most business owners take advantage of the changing seasons to focus on cleaning and preventative maintenance. So take some time this spring to have your building’s fire safety system inspected. For a full range of fire protection services, contact Castle Sprinkler & Alarm today!
