5 Electrical Safety Tips

  1. Test GFCI’s and AFCi’s to confirm they are functioning properly.
  2. Ask previous tenants if they have had any blown fuses or tripping circuits during their tenancy.
  3. Double-check that light switches and electrical outlets do not feel warm to the touch when being used.
  4. Make sure that the area surrounding the electrical meter is clear of vehicles, debris, and trash cans.
  5. Provide tenants with a troubleshooting guide for basic electrical issues.

It’s always better safe than sorry when it comes to issues with your investment property. When work does need to be done on your property, ensure you’re using licensed and bonded professionals who will warranty their work.
