Steps to Prepare for an Electrical Insurance Inspection

With proper preparation, it is possible to speed along the process of an electrical insurance inspection and also improve the likelihood that your property passes with high ratings, potentially lowering your insurance premiums. Some steps to take to prepare include:

1.     Communicate with Your Electrician

If you are hoping to prepare your home or business for an electrical inspection, the first step to take is to talk to the electrician who will be performing the inspection to get their input on anything that they would like to see during their inspection and prepare to give them access.

2.     Check for Cord and Outlet Safety

Make sure that you read up on how to use extension cords, power bars, and outlets safely. This should be a standard that you maintain at all times and not just when an electrician is coming for an inspection, as it is vital for electrical fire safety.

3.     Ensure Access to Electrical Systems

Make sure that your electrician will be able to easily access all components of your electrical system including the breaker box, meters, and outlets and switches.

4.     Update Safety Equipment

Go through your home or business and ensure that all safety equipment is up to date. Check smoke alarms and CO detectors, fire extinguishers, and anything else that could pertain to your building’s electrical safety.
