A ‘Do it Yourself’ electrical repair can be tempting with countless entertaining home improvement shows on the air, but it’s not certainly worth risk of electrocuting yourself or starting a fire. 50% of us, think of tackling household maintenance and repair jobs ourselves, but Yalla Fix It vehemently advice against ‘Do It Yourself’ Electrical repairs. When it comes to electrical work it demands not only logic, but science and hiring our DM licensed Electricians with intensive training is the rational choice. At YFI, we take safety seriously and your safety is our first priority.
Did you know around 3,500 people are hurt every year due to improper use of the simplest device such as a screwdriver? It only takes a split-second for a misused power tool to result in critical injury. Figures reveal 700 people lose their lives every year because of DIY accidents around the world. Tampering with electricity is strictly a NO NO, as it causes a staggering 1.2million significant injuries worldwide. Most ‘Do It Yourself-ers’ overlook and shrug off the instructions for electrical appliances that they bought a year ago. Inexperience, lack of personal protective equipment, poor planning and failing to use the right tool by DIY-ers culminates in fatal injuries.
DIY-ing an electrical job can potentially end up putting your home at inherent risk. Being an amateur, it is challenging to figure out the proper type of wires, outlets or switches and using the wrong products will result in grave problems. Besides devastating consequences for your home, trying to fix electrical issues yourself can be incredibly dangerous for you. We can all recover from hitting our thumbs with a hammer but touching the wrong wires doesn’t always give you the same chance of recovery.
Electrical repairs that demand a steep learning curve for you, are second nature to our licensed electricians. Duct taping and gluing are unlikely to work, rather place you and your family at the risk of electrocution and fire. Faulty repairs of electrical appliance by yourself may be lethal for you or the next person who uses it.
Think, is it worth risking your life or that of your loved one?
