Lighting strikes are undoubtedly one of the most serious and often overlooked causes of building damage; they can even be fatal at their worst.
Although the chances of a lightning strike are often very minimal, it does happen, and when it happens, you sure want to be protected.
The best way to do so is by installing a lightning protection system and having it inspected and maintained routinely.
But remember, a malfunctioning system is as bad as not having any.
What happens is, the different elements of the lightning protection system can deteriorate with time, hence reducing the safety levels and putting your building and the occupants at risk.
That is why you need to ensure each component is in good condition by having it inspected and maintained routinely by professionals.
How do periodic inspections help?
The periodic inspections and maintenance also help to address any anomalies such as corrosion, incorrect handling, or any errors made during installation.
It is also an opportunity to review and update the system’s preventive maintenance plan.
It is important to remember that lightning rod components, maintenance, and repair can be pretty complex.
That is why you should have a lightning protection company carry the tasks, preferably a certified technician. This way, you’ll be getting the following services:
- A thorough system inspection for deficiencies
- System inspection for remodeling or repair work
- Complete system installation
- Repair work on an existing system
