each year, unsafe electrics cause 12,500 house fires, 750 serious injuries and 10 deaths
(PRWEB UK) 21 February 2013
It has been reported in Milton Keynes Citizen that the organisation is warning home owners that most electrical work carried out in the home needs to meet the requirements of Part P of the Buildings Regulations in order for it to be considered safe and legal. The advice comes as it is revealed that 35% of people said they would attempt to rewire a socket and 29% would be prepared to add a new light switch.
This comes despite the fact that each year, unsafe electrics cause 12,500 house fires, 750 serious injuries and 10 deaths.
We Fix Now offers plumbers in Hampstead and throughout the London area, but is also known for providing fully trained electricians around the clock. The team were naturally concerned by the statistics and a representative from the firm stresses the importance of electrical safety.
“The majority of electrical work carried out in the home really does need to be completed to a trained specialist such as those provided by We Fix Now. Those who are particularly determined to carry out work by themselves should be aware that work must be notified to a local authority building control department who will then need to inspect the finished job.
“Faults within home electronic appliances such as washing machines and fridge freezers are more common than most people realise so it’s always important to seek the opinion of an expert.”
