When Should You Schedule An Electrical Inspection?

 

With around 51,000 house fires originating from electrical systems every year, scheduling regular electrical safety inspections is imperative in ensuring that your home or business establishment is safe from electrical disasters. Nevertheless, whenever everything is running smoothly, one might not see the need for scheduling these inspections. However, dismissing this operation could see you run the risk of electrical emergencies such as house fires. Thus, to ensure that your home, establishment, or investment stays safe, you should commit to getting an annual electrical inspection and maintenance check from a licensed professional.

What is an Electrical Safety Inspection?

This is a maintenance check done to ensure that your electrical systems are in perfect shape. Thus, it involves checking grounding and bonding, making sure that circuits are not overloaded, testing the health and strength of sockets and outlets, in addition to inspecting all the wiring inside your walls.

What Is Its Importance?

Having annual electrical inspections is essential for safety assurance. Compromised electrical systems can cause mild to severe shocks, or even result in electrical fires. These disasters often occur when proper maintenance procedures are not observed.

When Should You Schedule an Electric Inspection?

This inspection should be the first thing you ask to be done before you purchase or sell a home. It alerts you to any potential compromises in the house’s electrical systems. Moreover, if you have had your home for an extended period, it is good practice to schedule for annual inspections.
Additionally, if you have just had a major electrical renovation or were the victim of a disaster such as a flood, an electrical inspection would only be wise.

However, it should be a rule of thumb to have your premises’ electrical systems inspected every 5 to 10 years as wiring and circuits degrade over time because of being chewed by pests and other factors.
