This is vital for your own safety and also a requirement by some insurance companies who may refuse to pay out a damage claim if they were the result of neglected electrical faults.

Electrical Testing in Blunsdon – The Process
To make you aware during the course of the electrical testing your power will be turned off and depending upon the size of your property and the number of fuseboards etc that will determine how long the electrician will be on site. On average it is between 2 and 4 hours.
During the testing our Blunsdon electrician will fill in a detailed multi-paged report, this will be sent to you after it has been produced by the office. The report will detail all the test results and any findings of electrical issues that are non-compliant with the current regulations or dangerous. The report grades any faults found as follows:
Faults found that are C1 indicate an immediately dangerous situation and would be dealt with straight away on site; Faults found that are C2 mean potential danger with immediate work needed; Faults found that are C3 mean improvement is recommended; FI means further investigation is needed without delay.
We will provide a no obligation competitive quote for your consideration if remedial works are required.
