Electrical Safety Check
We will send one of our qualified electricians (not a sales person) to look at your home’s electrics to ensure your home is as safe as possible.
We will visually check the sockets, lights, switches, fuse board and your protective earthing. We will discuss any concerns you may have and provide a list of any remedial work we recommend.
Electricity can kill. Government statistics show that over 15% of all fires in UK homes are caused by electrical faults. In 2006, this resulted in 19 deaths and 1117 injuries. There were also 21 deaths and 2788 injuries caused by electric shocks in homes.
The Facts - Modern living has meant we use more and recent surveys show that over 2 million homes in the UK need some kind of electrical repair. Older houses are especially at risk. For instance, just 20 years ago the average UK home had a hi-fi system and one TV or video, whereas today it is more likely that there are at least two TVs, a video, a DVD player and a computer, printer or scanner. So the possible risk of electrical accidents in the home is higher now than ever before.
