Portable fire extinguishers are one of the most critical aspects of your business’s fire protection plan. A quick response from a properly trained employee is often enough to douse a contained fire before it gets out of control. Of course, to successfully put out a fire, your extinguishers must be charged and ready to go at all times.
Take a walk around your business and take a look at the pressure gauge on each fire extinguisher. If the needle isn’t pointing to the green, you’re unintentionally leaving your building vulnerable. Don’t take your chances—choose United Fire Protection to recharge your fire extinguishers today.
If your business is located in the Orlando metro area, please call United Fire Protection at 407-218-8348 for all your fire extinguisher service needs. We’ll recharge your canisters so they’re ready to protect your building in the event of a fire.
When to Recharge Your Fire Extinguishers
Different scenarios require you to recharge your fire extinguishers. If any of these apply to you, give United Fire Protection a call today.
- You recently put out a fire with a portable extinguisher: Congratulations on acting fast enough to limit the damage from a fire! Now, you must recharge the fire extinguisher to ensure you aren’t left unprotected if another blaze breaks out.
- You accidentally discharged a small amount of pressure: Even if you only pull the trigger for a second or two, this released pressure makes the extinguisher less effective against the next fire. Every bit of pressure counts, so make sure you recharge any extinguishers in your building that are only partially pressurized.
- You notice a low pressure reading during a routine inspection: You should check your extinguishers once a month in accordance with Florida Fire Prevention Code. Then, you must hire a professional once a year to conduct a more thorough inspection. If you notice a low pressure gauge during any of these safety checks, make recharging service a top priority. Keep your eye on the tank in the future. If the pressure continues to drop even though the extinguisher has not been used, the canister is probably leaking, and you should replace it promptly.
- It’s time for six-year maintenance: Dry chemical fire extinguishers are discharged and tested every six years to ensure they still operate safely. As long as they pass the test, you can have the extinguisher recharged and put back in service for another six years.
