Commercial Electrical Maintenance

Jun 7, 2024

Commercial electrical maintenance is so important for many reasons. Most importantly, it's crucial for ensuring the safety of your business operations. Neglecting routine maintenance can lead to serious issues down the line, including electrical hazards and code violations. Here are some tips to keep your commercial electrical system operating smoothly:

Conduct Routine Inspections

Just like with your home, your business should have regular inspections to ensure everything is operating correctly. Some things to look for include exposed wires, burn marks or outlets or switches, flickering or dimming lights, and tripped breakers. If you notice any of these issues during a routine inspection, call an electrician right away. If left unattended, these issues can escalate quickly to a larger problem. 

Schedule Regular Maintenance 

In addition to a visual regular inspection, professional maintenance is so important. Experienced electrical technicians will inspect, clean and maintain your equipment, ensuring it's operating correctly. Regular maintenance can extend the lifespan of your equipment. 

Update Outdated Wiring and Panels

It's essential to keep your wiring and panels updated. Older wiring and panels can pose serious risks and may not meet current electrical code requirements. Upgrading to modern wiring and panels will improve energy efficiency and reduce safety risks. 

Test Emergency Systems

Emergency lighting and back up power are essential for the safety of your business. These must be regularly tested to ensure they are in proper working order and will be there for you and your employees if an emergency should arise. 

Train Your Staff & Keep Records

Ensure all employees have been trained on basic electrical safety procedures and also trained on any electrical equipment they may use day to day. Train staff to know how to identify potential hazards and what to do should they arise. Keep records of all inspections, maintenance and training. Documentation will help you track the condition of your systems over time and could be useful in identifying issues should they arise.
