Defective wiring and faulty electrical work cause thousands of fires & electrocutions resulting in property damage, injury or death each year. It is estimated that over 2 millions homes in the UK need some kind of electrical maintenance or repair. Older houses especially are at risk.
It is important that your home is safely wired and current legislation requires you to use an electrician qualified to current standards to carry out almost all electrical work. If you “Do it Yourself” you are not only risking legal penalties and insurance claim reductions but also your life and those of your family.
Most electrical wiring is hidden, but here are a few questions which may easily be answered to give an idea of whether you should consider having an electrician check your home…
If the answer to any of the above is “yes” then you need to have an electrician inspect your electrical installation to determine whether any work is required to ensure your home is safely wired.
Please don’t hesitate to email or phone if you would like a free visual inspection carried out, with absolutely no obligation, to identify if any obvious problems exist which require attention.
