Electrical problems are more than an inconvenience to you and your family. Often, they pose serious threats to the safety of your home. If any part of your electrical system isn’t in great condition, it can cause serious damage to your property, or result in serious injuries. Often, homeowners won’t have safety inspections because they haven’t noticed any problems with their electricity. However, without regular inspections, serious problems could go unnoticed until they become detrimental. Electrical safety inspections are one of the most important maintenance procedures homeowners need, and often they’re also the most overlooked.
Electrical safety inspections are recommended by our Kansas City professional electrical experts once every:
- Ten years for an owner-occupied home
- Five years for a rented home
- One year for a swimming pool
- You should also have an electrical safety inspection when a property is being prepared for sale, rent, or purchase.
Periodic inspections will help make sure that your electrical system is safe for your home and family. The inspection will reveal if any of your electrical circuits or equipment are overloaded, find any potential shock risks and fire hazards, identify any defective electrical work, and highlight any lack of earthing or bonding. In addition, tests of your wiring along with your fixed electrical equipment are included in our electrical safety inspections to ensure safety moving forward.
