Fire Protection System Installation, Maintenance, and Repair in Milan, TN
You choose a fire protection service to give you peace of mind. In the event of a fire, it will work to suppress it. Even if the suppression system cannot save the building, the goal is to delay the fire’s spread long enough to evacuate the building’s inhabitants safely.
However, how do you know if your fire suppression system will work if an emergency occurs?
First, choose a reliable fire protection system supplier.

We don’t do cookie-cutter fire sprinkler installation but design fire sprinkler systems that are specifically for you.
Regular Fire Sprinkler Maintenance
Once you have a reliable fire suppression system installed, it is vital to keep it working. Regular fire sprinkler maintenance is essential to ensure that your system will function if needed. This routine maintenance involves fire sprinkler testing, which ensures that sensors are working and that all of your sprinkler system’s components are functioning correctly. However, do not worry; a fire sprinkler test uses a specialized test component and does not require setting off the fire sprinklers!
Of course, you also must ensure that your fire sprinkler system is not creating other hazards.
Your fire sprinkler system has a backflow preventer. The backflow preventer prevents water from your sprinkler system from flowing back into the water supply if there is a loss of pressure. This is important because water stored in sprinkler systems may contain or develop contaminates that could pollute the water source.
That is why we recommend backflow testing as part of regular sprinkler system maintenance and testing.
