3 Reasons to Use Fire Protection Services for Extinguisher Recharge, Anchorage, Alaska

If you’ve used the fire extinguisher in your home or business, it needs to be refilled or recharged with water or dry chemicals before it can be used again. There are tools available to do it yourself, but the team at Yukon Fire Protection Services says there are plenty of reasons to hire fire protection service specialists instead. Based in Anchorage, AK, the company provides equipment, inspections, and 24/7 emergency assistance to businesses throughout the state. 

Below, Alaska’s fire protection service technicians share three reasons to hire professionals for extinguisher recharge: 

  • fire protection servicesKnowledge of Equipment: Before you recharge the fire extinguisher, you need to know its rating. Equipment falls under A, B, C, or D classification. This dictates what material to put in the device, as using the wrong substance could break it. Whether the extinguisher requires water or dry chemical powder, a fire protection service expert will ensure it’s filled with the right materials for its classification.  
  • Thorough Inspection: Before recharging the fire extinguisher, the technician will clean and inspect the cylinder, hose, squeeze lever, tubing, and additional components. If there’s any damage or cause for alarm, they’ll let you know. Fixing or replacing the extinguisher now could save your life and property later.  
  • Proper Gear: Recharging a fire extinguisher requires a pressurizing machine that can hold 10 quarts. You also need water or chemical powder and a funnel. Professional fire protection service technicians have the necessary gear and know the correct ways to use it.
