Fire Extinguisher Inspection and Testing
Fire extinguishers must be inspected monthly by professional technicians to comply with NFPA 10 and state fire codes. Our certified technicians will test your fire extinguisher to guarantee that all components are compliant with NFPA, local, and state requirements. Once these tests are completed, inspection specialists will determine if your equipment requires preventative maintenance (PM) to fix any critical issues.
On the confirmed inspection date, our fire extinguisher specialists will arrive promptly to conduct the following tasks:
- Check fire extinguisher locations to ensure accordance with your building requirements
- Inspect gauge pressure, condition, and compatibility with the extinguisher
- Check the valve and shell for damage or corrosion
- Survey the hazard area to verify that the extinguisher classification corresponds with the hazard
- Check that the extinguisher is visible and unobstructed
- Deliver a complete report of the inspection explaining any deficiencies and recommending corrective action in accordance with regulatory codes
Fire Extinguisher Maintenance
Properly maintained fire extinguishers operated by trained personnel save lives and prevent property damage. Commercial and industrial businesses can stay ahead of fire extinguisher problems by scheduling routine preventative maintenance with our certified technicians.
Fire extinguishers must be maintained annually by certified technicians to comply with NFPA 10. In addition to annual maintenance, our fire extinguisher specialists will perform the following preventative measures to ensure continual equipment functionality and regulatory compliance.
- Every five years – Hydrostatic test on carbon dioxide and water-based extinguishers.
- Every six years – Maintenance of stored-pressure extinguishers.
- Every 12 years – Hydrostatic test on stored pressure and cartridge-operated extinguishers.
