Let Us Handle Your Jacksonville Fire Extinguisher Disposal

Fire extinguishers are an important part of your commercial property’s fire protection strategy, but even these tools have a lifespan. When you need Jacksonville fire extinguisher disposal, think DynaFire. 

What’s your Jacksonville fire extinguisher disposal plan? Don’t have one? We can help with that. Not all fire extinguishers are the same, so it’s important to have the input of a Fire & Life Safety professional when determining what to do with yours. 

How Long Do Fire Extinguishers Last?

A disposable fire extinguisher (which can’t be refilled or recharged) has a maximum lifespan of 12 years. But as long as you’re keeping up with maintenance and inspections, regular fire extinguishers can last much longer. Regular maintenance includes:

  • Monthly visual inspections
  • Annual maintenance 
  • 6-year maintenance
  • 5 &12-year hydrostatic testing

As a full-service fire protection service company, DynaFire can take care of all of your fire extinguisher maintenance needs. 

Can  You Throw A Fire Extinguisher Away in the Trash?

No, fire extinguishers don’t belong in the wastebasket next to those banana peels and old carryout menus. Fire extinguishers contain pressurized chemicals when they’re full, which can cause harm to others if not handled properly. We recommend leaving fire extinguisher disposal to someone who knows extinguishers inside and out (literally), like the crew at DynaFire
