Electrical Safety Inspection


At WireOne, we understand that any electrical problems with your home are a huge inconvenience to you and your family, and they can often cause your daily life to grind to a halt. But the problems can be much more serious than that: any electrical problems in your Des Moines home could potentially pose serious threats to the safety of your family. That’s why our professional electricians recommend you have electrical safety inspections performed regularly.

If any part of your electrical system is in bad enough condition, it could cause significant damage to your property, or result in serious injury. Without regular safety inspections, there could be serious problems that go unnoticed and untreated until they become serious threats to your safety.

Our Des Moines Electrician will find any problems with your home’s electrical system and take care of them before they become serious issues.

When to do it

The recommended frequency of electrical safety inspections varies based on your home:

  • Once every ten years for an owner-occupied home
  • Once every five years for a renter-occupied home
  • Once each year for any home with a swimming pool
  • You should also have the property inspected any time it’s being prepared for sale, purchase, or rent.

Your Des Moines home’s electrical system is always used consistently, and safety inspections can make sure it’s ready for that. The inspection will:

  • Reveal whether any of your electrical circuits or equipment are overloaded
  • Find any potential shock risks and fire hazards
  • Identify any defective electrical work
  • Highlight any lack of grounding or bonding
  • Our inspections will also include tests of your wiring and any electrical equipment to ensure that they’re all safe for use.

Who Should Do It

You should only trust a licensed, professional electrician to perform a safety inspection on your home’s electrical system. Finding all the safety risks present can only be accomplished by a professional, and it takes a professional to know the Des Moines and surrounding area’s codes and standards, which you need your system to meet.

Our professional electricians can make sure that your wiring system, sockets, and outlets are all in excellent condition, and we’ll check for any wear-and-tear, damage, or deterioration.

We’ll give you a thorough report of the condition of your electrical system, detailing any damage, deterioration, defects, or dangerous conditions that we find. If we find anything that is dangerous—or potentially dangerous—we’ll discuss the problems with you and suggest the best ways to move forward with repairs, but we’ll never use scare tactics to sell more work than is necessary. We’ll make sure that your home is as safe as possible before our job is complete.

Smart device, eh? This is why modern building codes require GFCI outlets in bathrooms and kitchens. However, many older houses haven’t been updated, creating an unnecessary risk for you and your family.
