Our specialist electricians are experienced in carrying out high-quality electrical work and equipped with all the dedicated tools required to make your electrical system safe to use in future without compromising its integrity.

To prevent electrical faults at home, you should get your house wiring regularly inspected to avoid damages, have a dedicated circuit for energy-intensive appliances, including air conditioners, fridges, etc. hire an electrician to inspect the switchboards and identify faults and not overload a circuit with too many appliances and connections.

An electrical fault detection service identifies and diagnoses problems in electrical systems and deals with the issues of tripped circuits, power outages, malfunctioning appliances, flickering lights, etc.

No, you should not attempt fixing electrical faults yourself, as electrical systems are dangerous and can prove lethal if not handled professionally.
