If you’ve felt an electrical shock coming from an outlet when you plug something in, call us immediately. This is a sign that there is something overloaded in the system, or damaged or poor wiring. Either way, it could lead to deadly consequences or serious injury. Electricians should be called to ensure that you are safe in your home, and to prevent your house  catching on fire.

They are not required by law in all cases but it’s a good idea to install something that could potentially save lives. Safety switches can protect you and your family in case of a electrocution or a faulty circuit. Instead of letting the current pass through the appliance or outlet to electrocute someone, the switch will interrupt the circuit and cut the electrical supply.

No. it is illegal for anyone but a qualified electrician to do any  wiring or electrical work. If the work has been done to standard it will not pass certification. This is bad news if you need to sell the property or if you lodge an insurance claim. It is mandatory to hire a qualified electrician to carry out all your home or commercial wiring. You risk personal safety and the safety of your family.
