Last week, one of our electricians visited a job where he discovered incorrectly installed halogen downlights, the occupiers had a very lucky escape as this is extremely dangerous and could have resulted in something more serious.

This is not the first time we have come across something like this, and unfortunately, it will not be the last.

To prevent something like this from happening, we recommend using a fully qualified and fully insured electrician. All of our electricians have been fully trained to current standards, plus we are Trust Mark approved.

Trust Mark is the only Government endorsed scheme for trades in and around the home. They only award registered firms with their accreditation after thorough vetting and on-site inspections to ensure the firm is raising industry standards. It is the only scheme to cover all 3 cornerstones of quality:

1. Good Trading Practice
2. Technical Competence
3. Good customer service

We also recommend using a qualified and approved electrician to carry out an Electrical Condition report on your electric installations every 10 years, and a fire alarm inspection on an annual basis.
