Fire Extinguisher Maintenance
Fire extinguishers are pretty durable. However, you may find that your fire extinguisher has damage, leaks, or rust that can impair its ability to keep you safe at all times. We can provide fire extinguisher maintenance that’s as basic or as advanced as you need to make sure your fire extinguisher will perform when it needs to.
Fire Extinguisher Recharge
Have you had to discharge your extinguisher recently? It’s imperative that you have your extinguisher recharged. One of the simplest ways to help protect your business from incipient fires (the initial stage at which fires can still be extinguished by portable equipment) is to ensure your fire extinguishers are properly charged, recharged, and maintained.
Fire Extinguisher Hydrostatic Testing
If your fire extinguisher is more than 12 years old, the NFPA and local authorities require you to have it hydro-tested or replaced. A fire extinguisher hydro-test will make sure the shell of your fire extinguisher has no cracks or leaks that can cause it to malfunction when you need it most.
