For almost all electrical work it is illegal to have work done by electricians that aren’t licensed. You should ask to see their licence and indemnity insurance policy which all practicing electricians should have and covers you if their work cause damage.
The very least that a customer can expect from their electrician is that they are safe and have carried out their work in accordance with electrical standards. But you should ask for more. The first important thing is that you feel comfortable with the electrician or their business. They should answer all of your questions politely and respectfully. They should also give you a firm start date and estimate of how long it will take. If, for any reason, they have to do work that will be on top of their original quote, they must tell you before it happens and how much more it will be as you can read from these advice and tips. If you have a problem or are unhappy with how they’re working or what they’re doing, feel free to speak up and talk to them – remember you’re the boss.
They may be underestimated most of the time that they may not earn as much a corporate would and that their job does not require much hard work but the truth is that they are one of those men who work hard 24×7 for fixing power failures. When you experience power failures regularly you will know who is at work all the time helping fix it in time…
One needs to be very careful with the electrical appliances we have at our homes. We should ensure the safety of all appliances to avoid any mishap. You must always avoid sticking any metallic device while an appliance is still plugged into an electric socket.
Any new or old appliance that is not functioning properly and needs to be fixed should not be ignored and used irrespective of its fault, instead should be repaired almost immediately. Never use any appliance while your hands are wet or while the cord was left hanging in water for some reason. Similarly if the appliance while in use accidentally falls in water then do not immediately stick your hand into water to get it out.
