Signs Of A Dodgy Electrician
If you ever employ an electrician you need to make sure they have credentials, some form of certification that says they have been to college and passed the relevant courses. If you ever ask an electrician to produce credentials and you get an awkward response the dodgy alarm bells should start to ring.
Don’t ever use an electrician that knocks your door asking for work. Good electricians are always busy and do not canvass for work. Don’t use Internet directories. Internet directories are just a list of company names and numbers there are no special checks that are used in order to be listed on an Internet directory. By all means use a search engine to look for an electrician. If you type Birmingham electricians (or what ever area you require) and you click on to a site that shows the official logo’s with registration numbers you can check the company out and decide if you want to use them.
Ask for references. If an electrician is reluctant to provide references then clearly there is something dodgy going on. A good electrician should have reels of references they can offer you. Times have changed the new organisations that electricians have to join have weeded out the cowboys. If you follow all the steps mentioned you will find yourself a competent electrician more importantly you and your property will be safe.
