Fire Sprinkler Inspection Cost NYC
Fire Sprinkler Systems, or rather the lack of them, have sadly been in the news a lot lately. Deadly fires in London and Hawaii have killed dozens and injured scores more. The fact that a hi-rise multi unit dwelling can be built, without fire sprinkler systems being in place is frankly mind boggling.
We are dedicating the next two posts to a critical life safety issue – namely the cost of getting your fire sprinkler system properly inspected. In this first post, we’ll be going over the problems corrosion causes in New York City fire sprinkler systems. Only by having your licensed and insured fire protection services company inspect your system annually, will a property or business owner stay ahead of some potentially disastrous event, and the consequences that will surely follow.
Fire sprinkler system inspections determine the extent of corrosion damage which will help you insure that your system works but guess what? It can save you the business or property owner significant amounts of money. When Master Fire Prevention performs its fire sprinkler inspections, we often find that 80% or more of system piping shows no significant signs of corrosion. The flip side of that is that as much as 20% of your piping can be corroded. Whether you own an auto body shop in the Bronx or one of Manhattan’s most prestigious hotels or restaurants, the most expensive approach to addressing fire sprinkler system corrosion issues, is to replace fire sprinkler piping one leak at a time.
That is why, in order to evaluate the extent of any corrosion damage on the internal pipe walls of your fire sprinkler system, Master Fire Prevention offers a comprehensive Fire Sprinkler System Corrosion Assessment Program. We’ll get to the root cause of the corrosion (if any), and identify the locations within the piping system where damage has occurred, and the severity of that damage.
Rarely is it necessary to replace an entire fire sprinkler system in New York, however that determination can only be based on the maintenance history of such a system. Surgical pipe replacement and the implementation of a comprehensive corrosion control strategy is the bulwark of any fire sprinkler maintenance strategy, that can in most cases extend the useful life of your system.
