New research has revealed that business owners, landlords,  homeowners are risking lives and property by not getting their electrics fully checked, leaving potentially deadly faults lurking in thousands of buildings

An NICEIC survey revealed that nearly nine out of ten (89%) homeowners and an undisclosed amount of business owners don’t really think about getting their electrics fully tested, with eighty eight percent (88%) confessing that getting their gas boiler checked is more important to them. Over a third (32%) admitted they have never had the electrics fully tested.

That’s why NICEIC has launched ‘MOT Your Property’, a national consumer safety campaign warning about the dangers of neglected electrics. Fronted by home-improvement expert, Linda Barker, the new campaign encourages those whose property is over 10 years old or commercial buildings 5 years or more to employ a registered electrician to carry out a Periodic Inspection Report, which acts like an MOT for the property.

Linda Barker, NICEIC spokesperson, says: “I’ve teamed up with the NICEIC to encourage consumers to get their buildings checked and make electrical safety a top priority. Even though it’s tempting to try and save a few pennies where possible at the moment, a simple electrical MOT could save lives.

Please feel free to call us fixed wiring testing is inexpensive and carried out with a minimum of disturbance.
