Using electrical tape in everything

Electrical tapes cannot repair all of electrical problems that we encounter but most do- it- yourself repairers use a lot of electrical tape even on the wires where it shouldn’t be used. One of the worst way of using electrical tape is using it wrap multiple wires to hold them together. This can lead to wires short circuiting causing fire in your homes.

Not fit for home electrical standards

Converting or changing one of the rooms in your home can be fun, however messing around with the electrical sockets can have damaging effects! Electrical changes should be completed by a professional who has been trained by an electrical board. Without this, you may make mistakes when changing wires or sockets; causing injuries or worse. 

Relying on YouTube and online tutorials

There are people who rely on their acquired knowledge from YouTube and online tutorials to save time and money on home repairs. This can be damaging as people could miss important information and therefore could rewire incorrectly or attach the wrong wires.

GFI switches is the safety mechanism that will prevent the flow of electricity to a certain outlet when it detected that there’s water present.
