Electrical Testing & Inspection
Every year some 12,500 fires are started through faulty electrical wiring and accessories causing death and injury.
Therefore it’s in your best interests to have your property electrical tested. Cables, switches, sockets, fuseboards and other equipment deteriorate with prolonged use, so they all need to be checked and necessary replacements or repairs made in good time.
To ensure your safety all electrical installations should be regularly tested and inspected to British Standards BS7671 – IEE Wiring Regulations, regularly, in general business premises should be tested every 5 years and homes every 10 years (or on change of occupancy), with some properties and locations requiring testing more frequently.
Contact us if you are unsure or unfamiliar with the correct use of your electrical installation or if you would like advice on whether your property requires testing.
