Electrical Testing Services

Professional Testing Throughout Worcester & Hereford

Nothing lasts forever. Even professionally installed electrical systems are in need of regular maintenance, and that maintenance should be guided by the information from periodic electrical testing services.

Goodridge Electrical Contractors Ltd does more than install various electrical systems. We can use our wealth of experience and expertise to test your existing systems and identify problems before they develop.

We offer one-off testing services, along with regular checks on a pre-arranged basis. Call 01905 676 366 for more information and we’ll be happy to provide more information.

Protect Yourself with Electrical Testing Services

It’s a fact of life that complex electrical systems can fail. Sometimes a failure will be inconvenient, but in some circumstances it can be dangerous. And most of the time, fixing a problem after it becomes serious can be very expensive.

We believe that prevention is better than the cure, and the best way to avoid these expensive and risky problems is with electrical testing services.

Every single electrical system should be tested regularly. How often a test should take place depends on the type of installation. For full details, please contact us. However, the following timescale should provide you with a guideline:
