When you are purchasing a commercial building, you want to have all the information necessary for making this important financial investment. Whether the building is completely remodeled and move-in ready, or it’s obvious that it will need some TLC, the commercial inspectors at Bryan & Bryan Inspections can give it a thorough review. While we check to be sure all systems inside the property are working correctly, we also check other items associated with the various indoor systems.

6 Areas That Are Evaluated During a Commercial Inspection (Part 2)

4. Electrical Systems

The commercial inspectors at Bryan & Bryan will complete an extensive review of the entire electrical system. Not only will we check that the system is up to code and working properly, but we will also review the following areas:

  • Properly covered electrical boxes, switches, and outlets
  • Electrical panels latched and obstruction-free
  • Electrical outlets properly covered
  • Outlets available for higher voltage equipment
  • Frayed or damaged wires
  • Outlets that include GFCIs (ground-fault circuit interrupters)

5. Fire Suppressant Systems

If your commercial property includes a fire suppressant system, we will check that it’s working correctly, and that all equipment associated with it is working correctly, too. We will also check these fire suppressant-related items:

  • Functional smoke alarms installed
  • Portable fire extinguishers available
  • Fire evacuation diagrams posted throughout the building
  • Exit signs posted above exterior doors
  • All flammable and combustible liquids properly tagged and stored
  • If smoking allowed, smoking areas properly identified

6. HVAC Systems

Along with evaluating the heating, venting, and air conditioning systems, we will also review any related equipment, such as:

  • Locks available on the boiler room door
  • No combustible objects near heaters or HVAC equipment
  • HVAC ducts free of obstructions
