How Much Does Recharging a Fire Extinguisher Cost?

Recharging a fire extinguisher is a process that replaces the chemical agent that is expelled from the unit, and this service is generally done inside commercial buildings that have larger extinguishers which use a dry chemical substance.

The cost of recharging a fire extinguisher will depend on the extinguisher, the number needed to be recharged and the professional recharging.
