Why you should never attempt to do your own electrical work

DIY work can be a great way to challenge yourself and be proud of what you have done. You should remember though that there is some work you should never attempt yourself, like electrics. This has the potential to be life-threatening during work and afterwards. You should always call the leading electricians Staffordshire has to offer for your work. We are happy to do jobs of all sizes.

DIY Isn’t Advised

Electrical work is one of the most common DIY jobs people abandon. This tends to be either because they realise how complicated it is, or they have hurt themselves. You need the right equipment and information on how to handle the tools as well as electrics. If not you won’t be able to do a high calibre job and will likely have a poor one instead.

You need to understand that while there may be videos on the internet showing you how to do it, DIY may not be the right option. Work done after a 5 minute tutorial will not be good enough. It can’t come close to what an experienced professional with tools and qualifications will do. You also cannot know if the person in the video is a registered electrician giving advice intended for people who already have in depth knowledge, or a novice.

A Dangerous Idea

There is no point in spending time and money on a job that could easily be worthless in the end. You then face high costs to fix it and do it the right way. This is along with the significant risk of the work being dangerous in numerous ways.

Some electrical work must comply with Part P of building regulations. In cases like this, you must prove it was done by someone belonging to a competent person’s scheme. Failure to do so brings various hassles to deal with. Get it right the first time round and give us a call.
