Don't DIY! Call A Electrician

Dont DIYWith the recent bank holiday being the last one before Christmas, many people used this as the last opportunity for attempting the many DIY jobs needed to keep a property in tip top condition. When it comes to DIY, stereotypically most women expect men to have the necessary knowledge and skills, and most men have a huge ego and don't want to call in the professionals. A recent survey showed that more than half of men would prefer to call a mate for help, or watch help videos on You Tube and then attempt a DIY job themselves, rather than call in a professional.

Electrical Services DISASTER!!!

The Electrical Safety Council (ESC) carried out a survey which found that almost half of all severe electrical shocks were caused by botched DIY attempts. The main causes were cutting through power leads, drilling into walls without checking the location of existing power cables and trying to complete repairs on electrical equipment without firstly switching it off.

When asking electricians, over a third said that they had been called in to fix bothed DIY jobs that had resulted in severe shocks and even fires. These botched DIY jobs involved significant financial costs to repair.
