Unsafe electrical wiring is a safety hazard that can lead to fire or electrocution. To ensure the safety of residents, numerous Illinois communities require electrical inspections. Rob Gisch of Detailed Inspection Service is a certified electrical inspector and can conduct the required inspections.
Home electrical fires account for nearly 51,000 fires every year, and the Electrical Safety Foundation International reports those fires cause $1.3 billion in property damage.
In fact, electrical distribution systems are the third leading cause of home structure fires, resulting in more than 500 deaths every year.
To prevent fatalities, injuries, or property damage, municipalities frequently require electrical inspections to enforce the safe installation of electrical wiring and equipment.
Electrical inspections are to ensure newly built or remodeled projects meet municipal building department electrical code requirements.
In many communities, a construction project must pass an electrical inspection before an occupancy permit will be issued.
To ensure the safety of their residents, city officials want to rely on knowledgeable and experienced electrical inspectors.
Rob served his apprenticeship with Local Union #134 of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers, where he earned his Class A Journeyman Electrician status.
He has his City of Chicago Supervising Electrician’s License and all available certifications through the International Association of Electrical Inspectors.
He’s served as president of the Illinois Chapter of the International Association of Electrical Inspectors and is the current president of the South Suburban Division of the International Association of Electrical Inspectors.
Rob understands that in larger communities, building inspection departments can struggle to meet the demand for timely inspections, while smaller communities may lack the volume to necessitate an on-staff electrical inspector.
