Electrical Testing and Flooding – Croydon

Electrical check after flooding

Flooded Basement or Ground Floor?

The subject of climate change has been popular in the media over the last few years. Whether you believe that human activities are responsible or not is up to you. What is very clear from weather records is that extreme weather events are definitely becoming more common.

Stormy weather with heavy rain is one of the most destructive of nature’s offerings. Trees fall on power lines, floods get into substations causing regional power cuts.

But it also causes problems on a more local scale. A flood hitting your property can easily take out your electrics. When disaster strikes your Croydon home, call in the experts. When the surrounding flood water has dispersed, we can come in and pump out the remaining water, usually in your basement, garage or a lower ground floor. But we don’t just get rid of the water for you. Using our state of the art diagnostic equipment, we will test your electrical installation and provide you with a report on its condition.

Electrical Installation condition Report Needed Following a Burst Water Tank?

It is not just the weather that can flood your house. Many Croydon houses still have header tanks and hot water storage tanks. If these fail, water can penetrate your electrical system. The damage is not always visible, so it is best to get your installation checked for potential problems.

Call us on 07956 523316 at ANY HOUR of the day.
