Microwave Testing

What is Microwave Oven radiation?

Microwave oven radiation is the energy that produces water in food to vibrate quickly, resulting in the heating of food. Faulty microwaves can distribute radiation leakage that can be very harmful.

Where would we be without them? The microwave is one of the greatest inventions ever to grace our homes and places of business. That said, like all other electrical appliances, it is important that this time-saving device is looked after and cared for properly because if it is compromised, this could pose problems for those that use it. If you believe that something is amiss, having a microwave tester visit your premises is vital because it could save you from harm and even save your life.

Should our team determine that your microwave is in fact compromised, then you will, of course, be informed and the appliance will be stickered appropriated to indicate that is faulty and should no longer be operated.

For those with pacemakers, you will likely be that bit more sensitive to a faulty microwave, and so, should you experience any dizziness or discomfort while using one, it is recommended that you move away immediately and seek medical assistance.
