Fire Alarm Testing in the Southeast
Your One-Stop Shop for Fire & Smoke Alarm Testing in North Carolina, South Carolina & Georgia
There is no more essential protection against a devastating fire than a working fire alarm system. Each year, over 1 million fires in the United States destroy homes and property and cause loss of life. These fires and the damage they leave behind create a financial, physical, and emotional burden on the victims and their communities — which is why ensuring the safety of your family, employees, and property is so important.
Today’s fire alarm systems offer the highest level of protection in decades. Cutting-edge technology has helped provide better, more efficient safeguards to alert you in the event of a fire. Regular maintenance and testing are vital in keeping you safe and providing the peace of mind you want from a fire alarm system.
The Importance of Fire Alarm System Testing in NC, SC & GA
Second only to proper installation of your fire alarm, testing is highly important in order to make sure you’re fully protected against the devastation of a fire. Unfortunately, the typical fire alarm can’t really be assessed for effectiveness simply by looking at it. You need a reliable expert to perform a series of safety checks, maintenance, and any necessary repairs so that you’re alerted in the event of a fire.
If you’ve neglected routine maintenance on your fire alarm, you’ve been gambling with your protection. For any system, regardless of age, that isn’t routinely tested and maintained, a thorough inspection and testing are needed. Fire alarms that are less than 15 to 20 years old are likely still able to issue the appropriate alarm and summon the correct emergency response personnel. But if maintenance has been lax, further testing of the system is the only sure way to know that you are fully protected in the event of a fire emergency.
Regularly testing your fire alarm system will prevent issues that may result in replacing your system. For fire alarm installation, repair, inspection, or testing, trust Unifour Fire & Safety to take care of your home! Call our team at 866-511-5540 or contact us online!
What Can Cause a System Failure?
Having a well functioning fire alarm system is crucial to the safety of your building and anyone inside. It’s important to understand what events may cause problems to ensure you are proactive in fixing any issues. In our area of the country, there are several factors that could cause your fire alarm system to malfunction. These include:
- Violent spring or summer storms
- Ice storms
- Extreme temperatures
- Voltage surges
- Power outages
What To Do When Your Fire Alarm System Is Malfunctioning
If you notice your relatively new alarm system triggers for no reason at all, you need to schedule professional testing and assessment. Contact Unifour Fire & Safety right away if your fire alarm system is showing signs of component breakdown or if you’ve experienced particularly inclement weather that has affected your fire alarm system.
When your fire alarm is over 20 years old, it’s advisable to replace it. Given the advances in technology, your outdated system is probably not as reliable as you may believe. Even if your fire alarm has been maintained and inspected regularly, you may need to have it updated to ensure the proper response in an emergency.
