Fire Extinguisher Recharge
Serving Portland OR | Beaverton OR | Vancouver WA | Longview WA
Professional inspection of fire extinguishers is required on a regulated schedule in order to ensure they are all in proper working condition. If a recent inspection indicated that the canister was low on water, CO2, or necessary firestopping chemicals, a fire extinguisher recharge process must occur to ensure ongoing protection. This is mandatory after the extinguisher has been used in any way but may also be necessary for other reasons.

No one should take chances with fire safety. Failure to properly maintain fire extinguishers or to make sure they are all the way full may result in serious consequences. Imagine not having enough inside to put out a fire inside a commercial building, industrial plants, hospital, or hotel. Besides the large amounts of money lost to the flames, the real danger affects the people who work in, live at, and visit the property.
There are many different types of fire extinguishers that contain a wide variety of firefighting substances under pressure inside the canister. Each is designed to put out a particular type of fire as quickly as possible to prevent loss of life, injury, and extensive damage to material property. Maintaining proper pressure is required in order to have the substance come from the hose strong enough to reach the fire and put it out. Less water or chemical means less chance of handling a small fire before it grows.
If the fire extinguisher discharges any water or chemical, or if the gauge indicates less than the ideal pressure inside, call up the fire extinguisher recharge professionals for help. The experienced technicians here at Metro Safety & Fire will come on site at a convenient time to replace the lost or used substance. At the same time, they can check the system over for any other problems. This attention to detail gives everyone peace of mind that the fire extinguisher recharge leaves the apparatus in excellent working condition.
