Fire Extinguisher 6-Year Maintenance
Fire extinguisher maintenance is one of the most important aspects of fire protection for your building. In addition to monthly self-checkups and annual professional inspections, rechargeable fire extinguishers also require six-year maintenance. If you need required six-year maintenance for the fire extinguishers in your building in Maryland, Virginia or Washington, DC, call Guardian Fire Protection today.
Every six years, stored pressure fire extinguishers that require a 12-year hydrostatic test (e.g. dry chemical extinguishers) must be emptied and proper maintenance procedures performed [see NFPA 10(98), Sec. 4-4.3]. The exception to this rule is nonrechargeable extinguishers, which are required to be removed from service 12 years from the date of manufacture. Again, this maintenance must be performed by an approved extinguisher servicing company.
