For Fire Protection Services in Grand Rapids, Call (800) 968-2871
The most important thing to do to keep your fire sprinkler in good shape is to have it inspected by a Fire Pros professional once a year.
Frequent fire sprinkler inspections will help catch any problems with your system so they don’t prevent it from operating properly in the future. In addition, fire sprinkler system maintenance will usually lower insurance premiums.
