What is an Electrical Inspection?

Your electricity runs behind the scenes to allow a great variety of modern creature comforts. However, according to research, electrical problems are the largest cause of property damage in most structure fires across the US. In addition, small appliances plugged into outlets with inadequate or improper wiring are identified as the leading cause of accidental electrocutions. Worry no more because at Two Brothers Electrical, you can trust us for the following inspections.

Residential Electrical Inspections

The importance of a residential electrical inspection cannot be overstated.

A home’s wiring may not seem like it would require an in-depth review, but there are many hazards and potential issues that could easily go unnoticed without the proper inspections from professionals who know what they’re doing. 

An electrical inspection is a great way to make sure your house’s wiring and other appliances are in good working order. Did you know that over 60% of residential fires start from an appliance failure? The last thing you want is for your family member or pet to get shocked by something as simple as exposed wires.

A residential electrical inspection is not only suited for being in line with codes. It’s also a good idea every 5 or so years to make sure your home is in working order. And it’s also something that can be shown if you’re selling your property so the new owner knows about any issues or that there are no issues. Another good idea is to have an inspection take place with a third party company if you had any work done for example a electrical panel upgrade. To ensure the work was completed correctly.

Commercial Electrical Inspection

The commercial electrical inspection is a must for any business dealing with code compliance, and it provides peace-of-mind when you’re managing the day to day operations knowing that everything is in order. And if it’s not, you will have a list of items that can be fixed instead of turning a blind eye. From office buildings or even stores with high volume lights that could potentially cause fires. This service will help save time from having an expert come out to do spot inspections.

Industrial Electrical Inspections

It is important to have the right type of electrical inspections for industrial sites. Having a comprehensive plan can help you avoid costly mistakes and protect your company from potential hazards. Which could lead to accidents with injury or death involved if they weren’t foreseen beforehand. Industrial sites are often working with large and dangerous equipment that could easily harm someone. An industrial workplace is often not a place where you would want to take risks.
