Loaded sprinkler heads

We had a government facility built in 2012 that has an office at one end, open air bays in the middle, and a closed in garage at the other end. The entire facility shares the same roof.  The open air section is used to store our road repair equipment when not in use. There is a pre-action system that covers the whole facility. We have been recently cited by our sprinkler inspection company for having loaded heads in the open air bay area. There are a number of heads that have an accumulation of spider webs and the associated debris. I venture to say that we have had this issue from the inception of the building yet this is the 1st time that we have been tagged for this issue. It has been noted on previous reports with the understanding that they could be cleaned this week and need to be cleaned again the next.

Was it necessary for them to tag us for this issue and if so how can the problem be avoided? We will have to increase our budget considerably if we are required to clean these heads each quarter.
