Pat Testing

Portable Appliance Testing Services

By law you are required to ensure your electrical equipment is maintained in order to prevent danger.

Capitol Cleaning Services provide a Portable Appliance Testing service on all or any items you wish to be tested.

This involves a series of inspections that assess the safety and suitability of electrical appliances.

We will carry out these checks using a qualified engineer who will ensure your business electrical appliances/equipment remain fully functional and employees are kept safe.

If you are unsure what needs P.A.T Testing, it is anything with a plug, for example:


The process of P.A.T Testing consists of:

• The appliance being disconnected from the plug socket.
• A visual inspection will be carried out.
• The appliance and its supply cord will be inspected for any signs of damage.
• The switch functionality will be checked

The fuse within the plug will be checked to ensure it is correctly rated for the safe connection of the appliance.
It will be plugged into a P.A.T Testing machine to check the earth continuity, insulation resistance and functional check.

Once these checks are carried out, the engineer will label your equipment as to whether it has passed or failed.

Our technicians are certified by First Stop Safety to carry out Portable Appliance Testing.
