Fire Sprinkler Repair in the Southeast
There’s no faster way to safeguard your property, business, or commercial building against the ravages of fire than with a fire sprinkler system. Sprinklers respond within seconds to the threat of a fire. The average response time for fire services in the US is around five minutes, providing your business is in an area where fire services are close by. Five minutes is a long time for flames and smoke to do damage.
When you install protective fire sprinklers in your property, you have round-the-clock safeguards in place to stop a fire before it gets out of control. But, how do you know if you need fire sprinkler repair, and who do you contact for quality repair services?
There’s no need to go unprotected, if you suspect your fire sprinkler needs repairs. Unifour Fire & Safety, the Southeast’s expert in fire protection, offers 24 hour emergency services for your fire sprinkler system and many other fire safeguards.
The Job of a Fire Sprinkler System
Fire sprinkler systems are comprised of a series of pipes filed with water that’s under pressure. These pipes are installed behind ceilings and walls with connected sprinkler heads mounted at regular intervals, in order to protect the area beneath them. In the event of a fire, heat rises, changing the air temperature around the sensors in the sprinkler heads.
The sprinkler system will activate, forcing highly pressurized water through the sprinkler head. This force of water is enough to douse the flames, extinguishing the fire, and minimizing damage. Unlike smoke detectors, sprinklers don’t respond to smoke, only rapid change in temperature that corresponds with fire.

Signs You Need Sprinkler System Repair
Although fire sprinkler systems are highly reliable, they do sometimes need repair. When your system is in need of a fix, whether the result of a failed inspection or your own keen observation, contact Unifour Fire & Safety immediately. We’ll service your faulty sprinkler system and ensure it’s working properly. Your safety and satisfaction is our primary concern. Here are some common occurrences with fire sprinkler systems which would indicate the need to contact us for repairs:
- Visible leaks – Water marks in your ceiling and walls will appear in the presence of a leak. The water leak could be due to faulty plumbing, a roof issue, or a seal in your fire sprinkler system may be to blame. As the water in the pipes is highly pressurized, it’s not uncommon for joints to become loose over time. Regular maintenance and inspections should catch a problem with the seal before it begins to leak, however, anytime you see a water mark, you should contact Unifour Fire & Safety to make sure your system is at its protective best.
- Loose or broken sprinkler head – Fire sprinkler heads suffer damage all the time. From simple indoor roughhousing to accidentally knocking the sprinkler head with a ladder, forklift, or warehouse vehicle, your sprinkler head can become loose or broken and you may not even be aware. If you notice a sprinkler head that appears to be “off-kilter”, contact Unifour Fire & Safety. Never attempt to replace the sprinkler head yourself or you could have a mess.
- Tripped alarm – When routine maintenance is performed on your fire sprinkler system, air is inserted into the pipes. Over a few days or weeks’ time, the air is released through microscopic fissures within the pipes. This will not compromise your system’s ability to protect you and is a normal part of maintenance. However, sometimes the air becomes trapped and throws off your systems ability to perform correctly. If you notice “false alarms” you need to contact Unifour Fire & Safety immediately to rectify the situation and ensure your safety.
