We’ve done it before, and now we want to make sure we warn residents again of the dangers of doing their electrical repairs. We love that there is so much information on the internet and instructional videos on home repairs. However, we always recommend consulting with a professional electrician about repairs when it comes to electrical issues. For one, electrical repairs can be hazardous to your home and family. Second, DIY electrical repairs sometimes make a problem worse and end up costing more money in the long run.
The training our electricians go through is quite extensive. In order to become a licensed electrician, years of study and examinations are required. Also, one must go through various background and insurance checks. Now think how much training is required to do that repair that you think you can do yourself.
In fact, the number one cause of electrical fires is faulty outlets. Outlets are often listed as an easy DIY job. However, we often stress to customers that it’s just not worth the risk involved. There are many other DIY projects that can be done around the home. But electrical repairs and tasks should never be done by anyone but a licensed electrician that has the right training. Not only can things potentially go wrong during the repair, there can also be dangers after, including when residents are away, or worse, sleeping.
In the end, too much is at stake for you to handle any electrical repair yourself. Instead, call the company that has been handling electrical repair services throughout Palm Beach Gardens, Jupiter, FL, Boynton Beach, Lake Worth, West Palm Beach, Lantana, and surrounding areas for 40 years. We are a family-owned company and have a whole staff of electricians experienced and trained for any number of different repairs.Back to blog home
