Prevent damage to your property with a simple test

It is the responsibility of the landlord to ensure that any electrical appliances provided in a property are safe to use. This includes kettle, microwave oven, Toaster, Washing Machine, Fridge, Vacuum Cleaner etc.

Carrying out periodic inspection and testing of these appliances Known as Portable Appliance Testing (PAT) is a prudent and cost effective way of ensuring that these items are safe to use.

PAT testing involves both an inspection of the appliance including the plug, flex and the body of the item and testing using a calibrated test set. This is to check that it has a good earth connection, where an earth wire is fitted and that the insulation throughout the appliance is in good order.

Such an inspection will identify potential problems such as a damaged flex as shown in the attached photograph.

We currently arrange PAT testing for many of our landlords.
