Without electricity you couldn’t watch television, turn on the lights in your home or use your internet. So, when you’re having a problem, you naturally want to get it fixed as soon as possible. However, it’s never a good idea to mess with electrical wiring in Cairns if you don’t know what you’re doing. Let the experts here at CJD Electrical come have a look and fix the problem for you so you don’t encounter any of the problems that could arise with a DIY job. 

Electrical Fire



Wiring electricity improperly increases the risk of an electrical fire. Poor wiring and old wires also pose the same risk. If you try to do the work yourself and such a fire starts, you risk losing your entire home as well as the chance that you’ll be severely burned or even killed. An electrical fire can spread pretty quickly, but letting our experts do the job dramatically reduces the risk involved.

Improper Function



One of the biggest issues you might face with a DIY job is that your electricity won’t function like it should. Wires that aren’t hooked up right or are in the wrong place can malfunction, leaving you without power. Improper electrical work can also lead to other issues, such as loss of power in only certain outlets, entire loss of power throughout your house, and flickering lights or bulbs that burn out too quickly. Unless you know what you’re doing it, don’t risk it. 

Loss of Insurance



In some cases, if you attempt to fix electrical problems on your own and there’s an accident, your homeowner’s insurance may not cover the damage or loss. If you don’t hire a certified electrician or the work doesn’t follow the guidelines in Cairns, you could risk being responsible for the loss or damage yourself. 

Injury or Death



As mentioned above, messing with electrical wires puts you at risk of serious injury and death. If you cut the wrong wire, you could wind up with a bad electrical shock and if you put sparks in the wrong location, you risk a fire or serious burns on your body. Improperly grounded wires could end up causing an electrocution, either to you or someone you love. 

Electrical wiring in Cairns is always best left to the experts. No matter what you need done, call CJD Electrical and we’ll be there to help you out.
