School Districts Take Care of Needed Maintenance During the Summer Months
Summer is here and there are many teachers, parents, and students who are glad to have the break. After a long, cold winter of indoor recesses, in fact, to many of the people who are involved in the schools across the country it sometimes seemed as if the last day of class would never arrive. Fortunately, June is here and the majority of the students across the country are getting to enjoy some mornings where they sleep in and can spend long, lazy days at the pool.
For the administrators, maintenance workers, and other school district personnel who work throughout the summer, however, another kind of busy days are just getting started. From deep cleaning processes to inspections of heating and cooling systems and fire sprinkler services, school buildings across the country are very busy places. And while major remodeling or new carpeting does not happen at every building every summer, the fact of the matter is that there are many yearly maintenance tasks that do.
From fire sprinkler services to other kinds of building and property inspections, school buildings are often a pretty busy place in the summer.
When Is Your Next Fire Sprinkler Maintenance Service Scheduled?
Any building that serves the public is subject to a number of requirements to make sure that the space is as safe as possible. From hospitals to schools to restaurants to hotels, there are a number of requirements to make sure that the right fire protection services are not only in place, but in working order. In fact, the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) has no record of a fire killing more than two people in a completely sprinklered building where the system was properly operating.
Likewise, private companies are also subject to required inspections that can help protect both lives and property. For instance, U.S. based small data centers, those that are less than 2,500 square feet, are required to have an Early Warning Fire Detection (EWFD) system installed.
Whether your next inspection is this summer while classes are on break or in the fall when students or workers will be in the building, it is important that companies and institutions make sure that they take every precaution to protect both lives and property from fire.
