Electrical Safety Inspections in Chattanooga, TN

Boost Your Peace of Mind With an Electrical Inspection

Electricity is paramount to our day-to-day activities. Whether you need power to work from home or to cook dinner for your kids in the evening, reliable electricity makes everything easier. But it's not without its risks. The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) estimates that electrical malfunctions are the largest cause of property damage from house fires in the United States. What's more, the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) says that small appliances using improper wiring are a leading cause of electrocution. Thankfully, you can avoid these hazards and more when you call Mr. Electric of Chattanooga for an electrical safety inspection. Our team of licensed professionals will take an in-depth look at your wiring and recommend areas for improvement. Residents of Chattanooga and Hixon, TN and Ringgold, GA are welcome to request our services.
