Fire Extinguisher Servicing/Maintenance

Fire Extinguisher Serviciing & Maintenance

EFS Fire offer a Professional Maintenance Service throughout Yorkshire by qualified technicians. Annual Fire extinguisher servicing is a vital part of your fire extinguisher cover and is required by the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005.

Your fire extinguishers will need to be inspected and serviced annually by a competent person to ensure their viability in an emergency. A visit from one of our technicians will ensure that your equipment is maintained to BS5306 Part 3 and complies with BAFE SP101 to ISI9001:2008 quality scheme.

Our aim is to offer a high quality service, Our technicians are not under pressure to achieve a certain revenue from the service visit, unlike those from many well known fire companies in the UK. You will receive clear and honest advice. Your inspection certificate will log where each extinguisher lives and when it is due for extended maintenance. In this way you can see what your costs will be ahead of time and budget accordingly.

We can offer:

• Routine Preventative Maintenance under a simple Annual Service Agreement.
• One off visit to rectify problems or bring site equipment up to scratch.
• 5 year Fixed Price Service agreement for clients with 10 or more extinguishers.

In addition to basic annual maintenance, every few years, (as a rough guide, 5 years for water, foam and powder and 10 years for CO2) extinguishers must be discharge tested extended service or, for CO2, overhaul service. To make sure they actually work and are in good condition internally.

Type of extinguisher Basic service Extended service Overhaul
Water and water-additive 12-monthly Every 5 years ----
Foam 12-monthly Every 5 years ----
Powder 12-monthly Every 5 years ----
CO2 12-monthly ---- Every 10 years
Wet chemical 12-monthly Every 5 years ----

With water and AFFF foam, they can be refilled on site. Powder will be too messy for this and CO2 extinguishers require specialist hydraulic testing in a workshop. The technician will usually exchange these for ones that have been factory tested rather than discharge in-situ.

Please Note that we tend to replace these with new as our price for new products is usually less than the price to refill or test. Plus, as that extinguisher is already 5 years old, it is possible to pay for the test and refill this year and for it to fail the service and need replacing next year.


Full service programs vary so please call for latest prices, this service includes all the service parts required.

Extinguisher Servicing

Fire Extinguishers require stringent maintenance to ensure they will work when needed. Fire Extinguishers are pressurised vessels that can explode when corroded or damaged, and have been know to cause serious injury and even death.
