Michigan Fire Alarm Repairs
When your fire alarm is malfunctioning, you may need a repair. The following four signs are a good indication that your system needs repairing:
- Aging system: Fire alarms are designed to last at least 10 years from their manufacture date. If your system is older, you may need to have it repaired or replaced altogether — especially if it uses ionization technology.
- False alarm: Frequent false alarms when no fire or smoke is present means something is wrong. Have a professional inspect your system to determine whether it can be repaired.
- Frequent beeps: Your system may beep without being touched or tested, indicating that it’s time for repair or replacement.
- Smoky kitchens: If your building’s cooking spaces frequently fill with smoke and cause alarms to sound, you may be wearing out the detector. This needs to be repaired to ensure your occupants are safe at all times.
Our fire alarm repair team can address your system’s problems and determine if they can be repaired or inspected.

Frequently asked questions we receive about Michigan commercial fire alarm inspections and repairs include:
Can I install commercial fire alarms myself?
You can try, but it’s a very bad idea. The short answer is no. You probably want a monitored fire alarm system, so DIY installation would be complicated at best. The biggest risks are that in addition to loss of life or property damage from fire, your insurance company can deny coverage if your DIY commercial fire alarm installation results in injury to people or property.
How do fire alarms work?
There are two basic types of fire alarms: manual and automated. Manual fire alarms have always provided entertainment for high school senior classes. Pull units are positioned throughout a building; you pull the lever to activate the alarm. Automatic fire alarms use audiovisual configurations to alert occupants.
How they work depends on the type of fire alarm system:
- He at/smo ke detector functionality
- HVAC shutoff
- Phone line system
- Commercial kitchen fire suppression
- Sprinkler systems
How do I know if I need fire alarm repair or a new fire alarm installation?
Signs you need fire alarm repair or replacement include:
- Age (average alarm life span is 10-15 years)
- Your alarm activates itself
- Beeping/chirping noises
- Flashing red light
- Test button is weak/doesn’t work
- Your alarm needs excessive repair in a short timeframe (replacement might be cheaper)
- Suspected circuit problems
- Your current fire alarm system isn’t sufficient for your space
How often should fire alarms be inspected?
Visual checks by maintenance or other employees should be performed every week. Annual inspections by trained, certified, and competent inspection specialists are required to remain code-compliant with fire safety. These inspections are to be completed by trained and certified inspection specialists.
