Watmar Electrical Contractors understand not everybody can be an expert with electricity. After all, there is a reason electricians are required to be fully licensed to carry out electrical work as electricity is an invisible and often a silent killer.
To help keep you, your family and tenants safe, our team share the top 5 things your electrician wants you to know:
Electricity is deadly
Do not attempt to undertake any sort of electrical installation or repair yourself. The consequences could be fatal. Always call your local licensed electrician to do any electrical work you require.
Be careful in the ceiling void
Before you enter your roof space, be sure to turn off the power at the switchboard to ensure you don’t come into contact with any live wires in the roof space.
Check electrical appliances for wear and tear
Regularly inspect the electrical appliances, tools and cords in your home for any wear or deterioration. Discard if they appear to be damaged in any way.
Use power point guards
Keep young children safe from shocks or electrocution by installing devices to protect them from unguarded power points.
Electricity and water don't mix
Never use electricity around water. Water is a perfect conduit to electricity so always dry your hands before using electrical appliances or tools to avoid shocks or electrocution.
Another important thing you need to know is that Watmar Electrical Contractors are fully compliant with licences and insurances so you can be confident when you engage one our residential electricians, commercial electricians, strata electricians or 24 hour electricians, that you only have the best of the best installing or fixing your electricity issue.
