Government Statistics show unsafe electrical installation causes more than 750 serious accidents and 12,500 fires in homes each year.
Electrics in the home should be checked every ten years, because in less time than you may think, the electrics can become damaged or worn through general wear and tear. If the electrics in your house have been checked before, a notice will usually be fixed on or near the fuse board recommending the next inspection date.
If you are moving home, you need to know about the electrics in your new property. Be extra cautious if the property is old as it runs a higher risk of having faulty wiring.
An electrical survey, known as a Periodic Inspection looks for possible electric shock risks and fire hazards. We will carry out tests on wiring and fixed electrical equipment, identify any faulty electrical work and highlight if safety measures (such as bonding) are present in the bathroom.
After the inspection we will give you an Electrical Survey Report (Periodic Inspection Report). The report identifies the overall condition of the all the electrics, stating whether it is satisfactory for continued use and any work which might need to be done.
