How Safe is the Electrical Wiring in Your Home?

Electrical Wiring Safety

It’s easy to forget about the electrics in your home when you never see them, it’s only when something occurs or goes wrong that it draws your attention. But if you are looking at buying an older house or you have lived in your home more than ten years and have never had an electrical survey then it’s time you did.

According to government statistics unsafe electrical installations are responsible for causing more than 750 accidents and 12,500 household fires a year. This is a scary statistic and one that could be prevented with a simple electrical survey. Its normal practice to inspect the electrics in a property every ten years, if you have recently moved into a property and you are unsure when your electrics were last tested there should be a notice fixed near the fuse board. If this isn’t the case make sure you call a reliable electrician to perform a full survey.

At First Strike Electrical we have the qualifications to perform an electrical survey, and our electricians in West London will use their skills to find faults and repair them. This is an easy process and one that puts your mind at ease. We offer a range of services, all of which can be found by clicking here.

They diagnosed the problem quickly helped us organise the replacement and when it arrived were on site the same day to fit it. A great service. They have never let me down.”

"I had severe water damage in my kitchen and the whole room needed to be refurbished from scratch. I did most of the work myself but required someone to come in and put in all of the electrics, so I called First Strike. They came in and quoted me a great price for the work and then carried it all out in a fast and high quality manner. Thank you so much for great service!"
