Inspection, Testing & Certification
There are many reasons why you could need an electrical test or inspection on your property or electrical items. It could be for insurance purposes, landlord’s inspection, change of use, ownership or even just for your own peace of mind. No matter what the reason, our team of highly trained staff are capable of providing full electrical testing and inspections of any type for all our domestic customers.
Periodic safety inspection of your electrical circuits can identify potential hazards
All electrical systems deteriorate with age and use so it is important that they are maintained regularly to ensure that the safety of people around the system is not at risk. Properties should have electrical installations certified regularly to ensure the safety of the electrical system. A domestic electrical installation condition report, formerly known as a periodic inspection, will reveal potential hazards within the tested installation, as well as identify any defective work whilst checking all the fixed wiring.
Landlords hold the responsibility to ensure that the property that is being rented is fit for purpose. This includes the electrical wiring. A domestic electrical installation condition report (for landlords) is required either every time the property changes tenancy or every 5 years, whichever is sooner. This ensures that the tenant has not changed or damaged the electrical system in any way.
Homeowners often call in a contractor to ensure that their home is tested prior to the property being placed on the market. If electrical problems or risks are identified, MK Wired supplies free quotations for major work so that the buyer and vendor are clear about the extent of the problem. The cost than then be accurately used in further negotiation, helping all parties to reach a swift and fair conclusion. Homeowners and businesses are recommended to have an electrical inspection every 5 years.
