Why do I Need Electrical Testing Services in Croydon?

All electrical installations will deteriorate over time and with use, therefore, it’s vital that you get your electrics tested and inspected to ensure that they are still in good working order. Not only is it recommended to get your electrical systems tested, but in many cases, you are obligated by law to perform regular electrical testing and inspecting. The most common electrical testing Croydon service that we perform is an electrical installation condition report.


Electrical Installation Condition Report Testing in Croydon

An electrical installation condition report is a testing service that is required for nearly all properties. You should get an electrical installation condition report:

Electrical testing Croydon

  • When you are buying or selling a property in Croydon
  • When there is a change of tenancy within your property
  • If a flood or fire has taken place on your property or building
  • Every 10 years for a self-owned property
  • Every 5 years for a rental property
  • Every 5 Years for a commercial property
  • Every 5 years for an industrial property
  • Every 3 years for caravans
  • Every year for a property with a swimming pool

This electrical installation condition report is a document that you receive as proof of electrical testing services taking place. A registered electrician will perform a series of tests and inspections on the electrical installations such as:

  • Testing for any missing or inadequate earth bonding that should be on water and gas main supplies.
  • Testing for any missing or inadequate safety devices that should be present on electrical circuits.
  • Tests on the consumer unit to check that it’s up to date and the RCD’s are in full working order.
  • Testing for any potential fire hazards or health and safety risks such as electrical shocks.
  • Highlighting any deviations from current electrical standards.
  • Testing for any damage or defectives within the electrical installations such as damage to cables, sockets and switches.

The duration of the testing will take around 2 hours, depending on the size of your property or building and how many electrical circuits that you have. Once the electrical testing Croydon services have been completed, you will be presented with an electrical installation condition report within 24 hours. This report will grade your electrics as satisfactory, good, recommended remedial works advised or pending necessary remedial works.

If your property is required to have remedial works to sign off on your electrical testing certificate, then Lola Electrical electricians will offer a full comprehensive quote on all remedial works needed.
