Here at Judd Fire Protection, we install residential fire sprinklers. Not only are we dedicated to commercial fire protection, but we focus on residential fire protection as well. Residential fire sprinkler maintenance ensures that your home is safe from a fire. Owning a residential fire sprinkler increases the chances of surviving a fire. We’ve discussed why you should have a fire sprinkler, now here are some maintenance tips.
Never Block a Fire Sprinkler
We advise against painting over fire sprinklers or blocking them with decorative pieces or with furniture. If you obstruct this device, then the obstruction will keep water from flowing. It also tampers with the heat sensor. Cleaning dust buildup or debris also ensures that the system works as it should.
Always Keep the Control Valves Open
Keeping the control valves open at all times controls the water flow. Water needs to flow to the sprinkler in case of an unexpected fire. Although we’ll take the time to explain how your fire sprinkler system should work thoroughly, you should always keep your instructions around if you forget how to work your fire sprinkler system. Also, arrange a flow test annually to make sure that your fire sprinkler system is working correctly.
Maintenance Services Matter
You should indeed call a certified professional, such as us, to repair, inspect, or install your fire sprinkler system. Scheduling regular maintenance services ensure that your device is in the best shape. One of our technicians will come out and make sure that your device is up to par.
Residential Fire Sprinklers Are Good for the Environment and Good for You!
They’re excellent for the environment! Did you know that they reduce greenhouse gas emissions? They also reduce the amount of water it takes to fight a fire within the home. They reduce water pollution as well.
If you’re a homeowner without a residential fire sprinkler, then you should consider getting one. Why? Your life, others’ lives, and your property matters. One reality that most people can agree on is life being unpredictable. Prepare yourself for life’s changes and participate in fire safety. For more tips, refer to our blogs, or give us a call.
