Why do fire alarms need maintaining?
As with any electronic device, components can degrade and interrupt the system’s functionality; dirt and dust can reduce the efficacy of smoke detectors; accidental damage, vandalism or even remodelling can compromise your fire alarm system and render the whole thing ineffective. Fire alarm maintenance Sheffield is a must.
When do fire alarms need maintaining?
Newer fire alarm systems shouldn’t need much in the way of maintenance; they should, however, still be regularly serviced and tested by a qualified specialist.
Older systems will need more frequent attention. Temperature levels, environmental humidity and voltage fluctuations can negatively affect the system, causing failure or problems.
The older the system, the more frequent and more attentive the maintenance and testing required: check the life expectancy of your system and consider installing a new one if it is no longer fully functional.
How to maintain your fire alarm system
Much of the maintenance needs to be done by an experienced professional: all alarm sensors must be calibrated and tested, as must annunciators. Batteries should be checked for corrosion and the connection to the fire service checked.
On a laymen’s level, any fire equipment should be kept clean and dry, and safe from impact or vandalism.
