Are Your Fire Protection Services Up to Date?
May 21, 2019 By admin
We all want to make sure our homes are safe, which is why we have fire prevention features in them. However, have you ever thought about the fact that your fire protection services may be outdated?
Having outdated fire protection services can be dangerous for your home, and more important, your family. Today we’re going to look at how you can modernize them so that they are more effective and you can have peace of mind when it comes to preventing and escaping a fire.
The first thing to look at is fire extinguishers. Most of us don’t realize is that these actually have an expiry date. A professional fire protection services company like Apna Fire & Electrical will check your extinguishers and will tag them to let others know they are up to date.
We will also advise you on the best types of fire extinguishers to have in your home. Lots of us absentmindedly buy them at the hardware store not knowing that different extinguishers are only suitable for certain fires, such as electrical fires or open flames. When you call us in to cover your fire protection services,we’ll assess which extinguishers are right for your home and the activities that take place in it.
Another thing we can take a look at is sprinkler systems. Sprinkler systems are one of the most effective fire safety features. They offer us automated fire intervention which occurs much sooner than firefighters can arrive. If you don’t already have a sprinkler system, we will install a state of the art one for you. If you do, we will check that it is not only working properly but also up to date with current code and practices.
Finally, we will also let you in on some not so obvious fire protection methods. While we are all aware of fire extinguishers and smoke alarms, there are other things that will help you, your family and your home. For example, having an escape plan in the event of a fire is necessary and for this, you will need a map showing you the nearest exits, as well as the right lighting. You’ll also need to make sure that the nearest fire pumps are marked and up to date.
Don’t take risks by relying on outdated fire protection methods. Call us in to assess them and offer you the best fire protection services on the market.
