Electrical Safety Inspections for Businesses
Getting an electrical safety inspection is essential for your business. Over time, your electrical system experiences wear and tear from consistent use, which can lead to issues. Having your electrical wiring inspected is one of the most important things to keep your property safe from hazards. If you want to protect your business from a potential fire, or other electrical issues, then an electrical safety inspection from Prime Electrical Services is what you need.
Differences And Similarities Between Residential And Commercial Inspections
A licensed professional must perform both residential and commercial electrical inspections, who will determine whether your electrical system is in good working order. During either inspection, the inspector will examine the electrical panel to identify potential issues, inspect the wiring, and ensure your breakers are in good working order.
Since commercial electrical systems are usually larger than residential systems, commercial inspections take longer. Depending on the system’s complexity, you may also need a master electrician to evaluate it. In residential properties, a home inspector may do an electrical inspection as part of a larger home inspection.
Commercial Electrical Safety Inspection Benefits
The most obvious benefits of electrical safety inspections are that they protect your employees, customers, and profit margin. Inspections keep your electrical system in good repair, which means your store or office is safer for those working inside it. A safer building also means you won’t have to worry about the cost of repairs after an electrical fire.
When Your Business Needs a New Inspection
It’s in the best interests of your business to have annual inspections of your commercial electrical system.
What to Expect from a Commercial Electrical Safety Inspection
During a commercial electrical safety inspection, you should expect a thorough examination of a majority of your electrical system. Our experienced electricians inspect for any hazards or flaws, in addition to checking any previous electrical work performed. During inspection, an electrician may review multiple aspects of your electrical system, including the wiring method, how suitable the wiring method is for your building, the number of bends in each conduit, and whether or not your electrical system needs corrosion protection.
