Residential Electrical Safety Inspections for Genesee County Homeowners


If you’re like most people, you don’t think about having an electrical safety inspection on your home, and you only call in an electrician if you have a problem or are remodeling your home. But as professional electricians, we recommend that you have your house inspected periodically for potential fire hazards by calling in an electrician for a residential electrical safety inspection.

According to the National Fire Data Center, electrical malfunction is the second leading cause of residential fire deaths in the United States and is also responsible for almost a billion dollars in property damage annually. Given these statistics, it is wise for homeowners to have their home inspected if they haven’t done so in more than five years. If you are a landlord, a good time to have an electrical safety inspection done is when you are in between tenants. That way, you can make any needed repairs without disturbing the occupants, and you can also assure the next tenants that the house is safe from any electrical hazards.
