Once we've tested your appliances we'll pass or fail each appliance & issue a PAT certificate. If any appliances are found to be unsafe, we'll advise on how you can get this sorted.
PAT testing stands for Portable Appliance Testing. It's used as a method to determine whether or not fixed appliances, consumer electronics & other electrical items in the home & workplace are safe to use.
PAT testing involves a professional completing visual inspections & other tests to check the safety of appliances. They'll then either pass or fail the appliance and provide a certificate.
PAT testing is often used by landlords & employers to ensure that they're carrying out their electrical safety obligations.

Booking PAT testing
Finding a good local tradesperson to conduct your PAT testing can be a challenge.
There’s a chance you’ll get lucky with a recommendation from friends or family - but for most of us, it means hours spent trawling the internet, looking through terrible websites, trying to find a reputable company. Some companies try to charge for a quote, costing you time and money with no guarantee of a great service.
That's why we set up Housekeep - so you could book trusted, local professionals hassle-free.
Need your appliances tested? We’ll provide a fast, no-obligation quote for the job. Just fill out our online form and our dedicated tradesperson team will send you a quote. All free-of-charge.
If you’d like to go ahead with the booking, we'll schedule the job for a date that suits you. Then we’ll send you an email to confirm the booking. No long back-and-forth, no costly quote and no stress.
But, what about the actual job? How can you be sure the work will be completed to a 5* standard?
It’s right to ask. Pick the wrong tradesperson and you could end up with dodgy advice and dangerous electrics.
Our tradespeople are vetted and have plenty of experience with PAT testing all kinds of fixed appliances & electronics – including TVs, microwaves, fridge freezers & more. They can test just one or two electronics, or they can be booked to test all of the electronic appliances in your home or office. You name it - we test it.
We’ll provide a detailed quote before you commit to the work - including VAT, parking & travel. You can also request that waste disposal gets included, if it's going to be required. In the event that any further work is needed, we’ll make sure you’re happy to proceed before you’re billed. So you’re in full control.
Need a hand with your booking? We’ve got a ridiculously responsive support team to guide you through the process - from quote to completion. You can reach us by phone, chat or email, 7 days a week.
