Commercial Fire Extinguisher Service
Many times businesses call us because their local fire authority or insurance company has issued a warning that their fire extinguishers need to be inspected or serviced.
California Fire Protection and Backflow is a State licensed fire protection inspector. We will come to your building to inspect and service your extinguishers. We can certify anywhere from 1 to hundreds of fire extinguishers in a day. We even provide prorated bulk fire extinguisher service rates for large commercial buildings.
Commercial extinguishers (A, B, and C) require the following inspections by a licensed fire protection company:
Annual Inspection: We ensure that your cylinder is maintaining the proper pressure, full of the required amount of extinguish agent, and that all external parts are in working order.
6 Year Maintenance: For the 6 year maintenance all of the working parts will be broken down and inspected. We remove all of the contents of your extinguisher. All of the components are disassembled, cleaned, lubricated, and replaced if found to be defective. Extinguishers are then re-filled and recharged.
12 Year Maintenanced: We perform all of the requirements of a 6 year inspection as well as perform a hydrostatic test of the cylinder. Hydrostatic testing is an expansion test to ensure that your extinguisher can safely hold pressure.
At the end of the service each extinguisher will be equipped with the required tag to satisfy local fire authorities and insurance providers.
Residential Fire Extinguisher Service
The State does not require residential fire extinguisher inspections however it is recommended to have them performed yearly to make sure that the extinguisher is working if your family needs it. We will test and service your extinguishers to give you peace of mind. Any extinguisher that is over 6 years old and has not been services is likely non-functioning.
