We often like to refer to it as an MOT for your electrics. As time moves on, your electrics can become unsafe and fall behind new safety regulations placing you, or your tenants in an unsafe position.
Our electricians, who are fully trained to the latest electrical regulations, will initially undertake a full electrical inspection. This involves a full walk-around the premises; removing sockets & switches from the walls, lights from the ceiling, checking for any damaged accessories and ensuring the correct cable and containment have been used.
Following the inspection and completion of the inspection schedule, we will begin testing. Firstly conducting a number of tests whilst the system is electrically dead, and then carrying out live tests.
The report will detail the supply characteristics and earthing arrangements, details of incoming cables, bonding to metalwork and a full breakdown of your distribution board; type of cable, method of installation, size of cable and type of amperage rating of your protective devices, followed by the test results for all of this.
If all is well, you will receive a satisfactory certificate. If not, then we will issue an unsatisfactory certificate with itemised and coded observations. These observations will indicate the relevant BS standards number and one of the following codes:
C1 – Danger Present. Risk of Injury. Immediate remedial action required.
C2 – Potentially dangerous – Urgent remedial action required.
C3 – Improvement recommended.
FI – Further Investigation without delay.
