Regulations, Codes & Standards Q&A: Cleaning sprinkler heads

Q: How would I go about cleaning the dust off the sprinkler heads?

 A: Use a portable vacuum cleaner. If the dirty heads are located in the kitchen, then you will need warm soapy water and a toothbrush. But you may want to leave that to a sprinkler contractor to do.
