Electrical system failures account for millions in costs in damages every year and many of these can be prevented by routine preventive electrical maintenance. Preventive electrical maintenance is essential; and is valuable in preserving systems that supply electricity to residential, industrial or commercial buildings.

The main areas of general electrical maintenance commonly include the check-up and maintenance of electrical enclosures, outlets, insulators, supports, connectors, conductors, circuit breakers, cables and lighting systems. These supply sources are checked for structural integrity as well as internal stability. The purpose of these periodic assessments is to fix small problems before they become worse.

Here are some pointers to consider when deciding on an electrical maintenance for your home or business premises:

1. The electricians must ensure that all enclosure panels, doors, and structures are well-maintained in accordance with the manufacturer’s specifications.

2. During de-energised maintenance, electrical enclosures are to be vacuum cleaned of all loose dirt and debris. But the use of compressed air is not recommended since this may cause foreign particles to become embedded in the insulation or damage insulators.

3. Any build-up of dirt or other contaminants that does not come off with vacuuming should be cleaned with lint free rags using cleaning solvents recommended by the manufacturer.

4. Electricians should inspect cables, insulators and conductor supports for signs of cracking, broken pieces, and other physical damage or deterioration.

5. Electrical generators, switches and circuit breakers should be regularly checked for solid connections and intact wiring. If faults are discovered, the electricians should make the necessary repairs.

During the preventive electrical maintenance, if there is any specific area of concern that arises, the electrical maintenance crew may use specialised testing methods and equipment to handle the problem properly. Also, make available of your building’s blueprints, specifications, wiring and equipment diagrams electricians can inspect all the necessary areas. This can also be a very helpful aid and more effective in diagnosing and troubleshooting.
