The Value of Fire Suppression System Maintenance

Mar 25, 2021 | Fire Suppression Systems

Inspecting, testing, and maintaining (ITM) a fire suppression system is just as important as maintaining the building itself. When you trust the Marco Protection Systems, LLC team with ITM, you are better equipped to prevent a fire from spreading and destroying your business. 

Prevent the Fire From Occurring in the First Place

A fire alarm and detection system helps prevent the development of a large-scale fire by sensing it in its incipient stage. Even minute traces of smoke will be detected. The detection devices alert the alarm system to activate the integrated fire suppression system while simultaneously notifying the fire department. Many fires have been stopped this way before they could start. Regular inspections ensure your systems are working in concert to activate properly when you need them most.

Prevent the Fire From Spreading

Fires form and spread very quickly. A small building fire can erupt into flames that engulf the entire building in less than 10 minutes. Before a fire has the opportunity to grow outside the room in which it originates, the suppression system can stop it in its tracks, smothering it with a clean agent or sucking the oxygen out of the room to break the fire triangle. Should a fire occur at your business activating the suppression system, it is crucial to schedule maintenance and repair with your trusted fire protection company to ensure the system is restored to working order. Just because a fire happened once does not mean it won’t happen again, so your fire protection systems need to always be prepared.

Provide Total Peace of Mind

It’s easy to overlook a threat, even one as serious as a fire. The fire suppression system provides every building owner with total peace of mind, especially when he or she is away on a business trip or vacation. You feel confident that your building will never succumb to a fire, even if you own a restaurant or large-scale residential complex where the risks are high. The sense of being safe and well protected are assurances that cannot be provided by property insurance companies. The Marco fire protection specialists provide the additional service of preventative system maintenance that ensures your fire suppression system is ready to protect your assets.
