Do you have a fire suppression system installed in your Central Florida business? Did it recently discharge chemical extinguishing agents in response to a cooking fire? If so, you’ve come to the right place! United Fire Protection recharges wet and dry chemical fire suppression systems in commercial kitchens and industrial facilities located in the Orlando metro area.
To learn more about recharging your fire suppression system, or to schedule services, please call us at today. We’re available 24 hours a day to recharge your system no matter what time it goes off.
When to Schedule Fire Suppression Recharge
Once your fire suppression system discharges, it’s no longer able to protect your business from fire damage. This means you should seek recharge services immediately to minimize system downtime and restore full fire protection status.
For example, say your wet chemical system activates in response to ignited grease in your commercial kitchen’s deep fat fryer. Soapy foam smothers the flames and cools the surface, extinguishing the blaze before it so much as blackens the kitchen floor. You breathe a sigh of relief, clean up the residue, and move on. However, if you forget to schedule recharge services, the clumsy chef whose sleeve catches on fire the following day will have to fend for himself.
Don’t put your building and employees at undue risk—schedule fire suppression recharge as soon as possible after the system activates to extinguish a blaze.
Fire Suppression Recharge Services
Some business owners wonder if they can recharge their fire suppression system themselves. However, it’s necessary to hire a licensed fire protection company to perform this service and get your system up and running again. Attempting to recharge your equipment without the proper training and experience could compromise its effectiveness or render it completely inoperable.
When you choose United Fire Protection to recharge your suppression system, we also perform an inspection to make sure the equipment is operating smoothly. Here’s what this entails:
- Clean up the residue left behind by the extinguishing agent.
- Test and clean the smoke detectors.
- Confirm adequate cylinder pressure.
- Verify shutdown and evacuation circuits.
- Test the releasing circuits during a simulated discharge.
- Inspect all pipes and nozzles.
- Verify hydro-test dates for cylinders and hoses.

Frequently Asked Questions About Fire Suppression Recharging
Do you need to recharge the system every time it discharges?
Yes, because your system will not provide protection unless recharged with the necessary gas, wet, or dry fire suppressant chemicals required to snuff out fires. Recharging is not something you should attempt to perform on your own, as failure to properly recharge the fire suppression system can result in damage and subsequent system failure. It is also not something you want to delay because your fire suppression system will not provide protection until the recharge is completed.
What is involved in a fire suppression system recharge?
Fire suppression system recharging involves much more than cleaning up the suppressant and verifying cylinder pressure. Our multi-point checklist includes cleaning/testing your smoke detectors, testing releasing circuits, an inspection of all system pipes and nozzles, and more.
Can Fire Extinguishers Be Recharged, or Should They Be Replaced?
It is common for business owners to use fire extinguishers even when sprinklers and other fire suppression systems are triggered. Either as a first line of defense or afterward as a confirmation, these devices provide peace of mind that the fire is well and truly out. Most fire extinguishers can be recharged after use, but if it’s an older fire extinguisher or shows signs of damage, replacement is usually the better choice.
