Home Safety Inspections

Complete Inspections to Ensure the Safety of Your Southwest Washington Home's Electrical Systems

According to certain reports, unsafe electrical systems are the leading cause of property damage as a result of home fires. While your home’s electrical systems make your life easier, safer, and more convenient, they can also put you and your family at serious risk if they are old, outdated, or improperly installed.

Electrical Home Safety Inspection

An electrical home safety inspection is an important step that can help you avoid costly and dangerous accidents. It is especially important to schedule a safety inspection if you are selling or purchasing a home, but you should also have an electrician conduct a safety inspection if:

  • Your home is more than 40 years old.

  • You are adding new appliances.

  • You are making substantial renovations to your home.

At Rawhide Electric Services, our team of Longview safety inspection technicians provide comprehensive electrical home safety inspections in Longview, Kelso, and throughout Southwest Washington.
