What are some of the most important commercial electrical maintenance tasks this Spring?
After the winter months, where weather can cause damage, and wear and tear can be more pronounced by use, electrical maintenance can be essential for keeping your property safe and sound, and maintaining your legal obligations to Electrical Safety. You should:
- Book a PAT test- at this time of year, there are generally more electricians available than during autumn or winter months when demand is highest. This means it can be a good idea to book a PAT test for any new electrical appliances, and be prepared and legally covered, for the rest of the year.
- Carry out electrical testing- you should consider hiring an electrical team to carry out any electrical testing during this time of the year. This usually involves testing emergency lighting systems, and backup power supplies and generators.
- Carry out independent maintenance- you can also carry out your own maintenance at this time of year too. You should consider checking all light bulbs and fixtures and making any appropriate changes, as well as checking any damage or wear and tear to cables, cords and electrical items.
