safety checks for your home

06 Oct

A stitch in time saves nine.

Prevention is better than cure.

Yet, most of us tend to be reactive when contacting an electrician or a plumber for issues around the house. Very rarely are we proactive.

A power blackout or faulty wiring will have you on the phone calling us.

However, when was the last time you conducted a complete home safety inspection in the absence of obvious issues?

When working with homeowners and tenants, we’re often surprised at the lack of concern folks show despite it being common knowledge that many house fires have been caused by overloaded circuits or faulty wiring.

So, if you are one to wait till something goes wrong with your electrical system before you call a professional electrician, this one’s for you.

A timely electrical safety check may not just protect you and yours, but your home, and maybe even your neighbour’s!

While we strongly recommend periodic safety checks, an inspection should be at the top of your list if:

Your house was built over 25 years ago and hasn’t been subject to a safety check that you know of
You have suspicions of faulty wiring
You notice abnormal functionality of electrical appliances
You’re about to put your house on the market (or you’re about to buy a home)
When a tenant or homeowner in or around Ballarat calls us for an inspection, we conduct a detailed audit and run several tests.

Our thorough inspection will include (but will not be limited to):

  • Identifying immediate electrical hazards
  • Checking for outdated, exposed or uncovered wiring
  • Inspection of safety switches and the power box
  • Testing all power points, switches and lighting
  • Inspecting any DIY work that may have been done
  • Testing smoke alarms
  • Evaluating the overall status of the house’s electrical system
  • Checking if any part of the system does not adhere to government regulations

Once our inspection is done, we provide detailed diagnostics with our recommendations. Our report will contain information such as the overall status of your home’s electrical system, whether any immediate action is required, and if yes, what we can do to help.

Remember, only certified electricians are capable of conducting a thorough assessment.

If you’re unsure whether your home has had an electrical safety check in the recent past, or if it is an older home, give us a call for an on-site inspection.
