Electrical problems in your home are a safety hazard. Bad wiring, overloaded circuits, and poor waterproofing of outdoor electrical work can all lead to structure fires within your home or property. When you get an electrical safety inspection done on your home, you will uncover any potential danger from the electrical system in your home. Once the inspection is complete, you will learn about what needs to be repaired and get an estimate for what the work will cost. Our goal is to provide you with a comprehensive look at your electrical system and identify any issues that must be addressed.
Conducting Home Inspections to Ensure Your Family’s Safety
For home buyers or recent home renovations, you will likely undergo an electrical safety inspection. These inspections review your home’s entire electrical system to make sure it is properly installed and operating to code. Keeping your family safe is the priority of these inspections. Our team at Tidal Electrical Services Services, Inc. conducts each inspection with meticulous attention to detail.
