Emergency Electrical Safety Inspections After Storms and Floods

Emergency Electrical Safety Inspections After Storms and Floods

Experiencing a major storm or flooding can be extremely disruptive and dangerous. One of the most important things you need to do after a storm or flood is get your electrical systems professionally inspected for safety. At Ampco Electric, Inc, we provide emergency electrical safety inspections to homes and businesses in Tulsa, OK that have been damaged by storms, flooding, or other disasters.

Why An Electrical Inspection is Crucial After a Storm or Flood

There are several reasons why getting an emergency electrical safety inspection should be a top priority following a major weather event:

Prevent Fires and Electrocution

One of the biggest risks after a storm or flood is a fire or electrocution caused by electrical damage you cannot see. Storms can damage electrical wiring and equipment, while flooding can cause short circuits. An electrical inspection will identify all electrical hazards so we can fix them before anyone gets hurt. Safety should always come first.

Check for Code Violations

Any electrical repairs made need to meet current building codes and safety standards. Our licensed electricians will check your electrical system to make sure any work that needs to be done complies with state and local electrical codes. This ensures repairs are safe and prevent any dangerous code violations.

Avoid Electrical Faults

Storms often cause hidden electrical faults that may not be noticeable at first. Faulty wiring can cause breaker issues, power failures, and other problems down the road. Our inspections will find any electrical faults now so you don’t have to deal with them later at an inconvenient time.

Prevent Costly Damage

Catching electrical issues early prevents further damage that can be extremely expensive to repair. Even small electrical problems can lead to major issues over time. Our inspections catch all electrical damage early and minimize how much you’ll have to spend on repairs.

Restore Power Safely

We want to get your home or business up and running again as soon as possible. But we need to ensure it’s done safely. Our electrical inspections allow us to safely restore power and get your electricity turned back on quickly after we fix any issues detected.

Provide Peace of Mind

Understandably, major storms and floods cause a lot of stress and uncertainty. Knowing for certain that your electrical system is safe and working properly after an inspection by our experts will give you peace of mind. We want to get your life back to normal.

What Our Electrical Safety Inspections Include

Our emergency electrical safety inspections are thorough from top to bottom. We check all electrical equipment, wiring, and connections throughout the entire property. Here are some of the major components our inspections cover:

Breaker Box and Electric Meter

We thoroughly inspect your main breaker box and electric meter for damage. This includes looking for corrosion, leaks, loose connections, and other safety hazards.


All interior and exterior power wiring is checked for damage. We look for frayed wires, exposed wires, water leaks, nicks, corrosion, and wire insulation damage that could indicate a dangerous electrical problem.

Switches and Receptacles

Every electrical switch, outlet, and receptacle is inspected for functionality and safety. Signs of damage include loose connections, exposed wires, burn marks, sparks, and unusual smells.

Junction Boxes

Junction boxes allow spliced wires and connections. Junction boxes are checked for signs of improper and dangerous splices or connections.

Grounding and Bonding

 Proper grounding and bonding prevents shocks and electrocution. We inspect ground wires and connections to ensure electrical systems are properly grounded.


Ground fault circuit interrupters (GFCIs) protect from electric shocks. All GFCIs are tested to confirm they trip when a ground fault is detected.

Smoke and CO Detectors

Smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors are checked to ensure they are functioning and properly located. This is critical for safety.

Electrical Panels

Subpanels, distribution boards, and other electrical panels are opened to inspect all interior components for defects and damage.

Lighting Fixtures

All interior and exterior lighting fixtures are checked for functionality and defects that present a fire or shock risk.


Hardwired appliances and equipment like air conditioners and hot water heaters are inspected for electrical safety and damage.

In summary, we thoroughly inspect every inch of your electrical system to uncover all potential safety hazards or code violations. This protects your home or business from electrical fires, shocks, and costly damage down the road.
