A trained electrician can also carry out a visual inspection of your property, providing you with a quick analysis of how safe it is. A visual check will look for damaged light switches and sockets, broken cables and scorch marks that result from the overloading of the power outlet. It will also inspect the residual current device (RCD). These visual checks should be carried out at regular intervals between the more thorough periodic inspections.
