Even though Youtube video tutorials tempt us into handling tricky home repairs by ourselves. But, things become a bit more complex and extremely dangerous when you are working with electrical items, wires and electricity. During such times, it is imperative to rely on a professional electrician without giving a second thought to self-help videos.
We repeat. Even though YouTube videos and other platforms can give you an idea of how to replace a switchboard or change the electrical wiring, if you are actually planning to implement those ideas, then please do not! Electricity is dangerous and life-threatening. Rather than putting your life at risk just to save some dirhams, it is better and smarter to consult and hire the best electrician in Dubai to get the job done.
DIY attempts can help you save some bucks, but electrical work is dangerous. To put it in perspective, how many times have you seen the danger symbol on public water works or plumbing items? Now think about how many times you have seen it on electrical lines, batteries, etc? Enough said. This is why it is important to hire professional electrical services in Dubai to get the work done.
Besides ensuring the safety of your home, professional electronic repair in Dubai offers the following benefits:
Finding the right electrician is more a matter of safety than getting the best value of your money – even though most people think the latter is more important. This is more so when you get a number of options when looking for search terms such as ‘electrician near me’ online. We have listed some of the important questions you need to ask to help you get a highly skilled pro for your specific electrical repair or maintenance needs.
1: Are you a licensed electrician?
For electrical work in Dubai, electricians are required to be licensed for the work. So ask this question and never consider anyone who is not licensed. Hiring an unlicensed electrician can cost you big later.
2: What type of work do you usually do the most?
Like any other field, even electricians are also specialised in certain areas. One may specialise in home wiring and other may have a good hands-on experience in circuits. It is important to ask this question to find the most suitable candidate for the work.
3: What experience or special training do you have?
This question should be on the top of your list if your project calls for a particular expertise like installing home automation systems, solar equipment or data cabling. Having knowledge of the same is fine but working experience with these protocols and systems should be a mandatory requirement.
4: Will you provide any reference?
Regardless of services you are opting for, references always work best. They are important because it is almost impossible to judge the work quality especially when you are unable to see most of it and do not clearly know what to look for. By contacting their previous clients, you can get a rough idea about their work and competency. In our case, you can simply visit the electrician’s page and check the reviews clients have left.
5: Who will do the work?
Do not assume that the person you are talking with will be doing everything. Ask who will perform the task and what their hourly charges for different qualifications, i.e. experienced, apprentice, etc. are. Discuss things up front if your work needs expertise.
6: Does your company give the complete list of expenses before work starts?
There are some maintenance electricians in Dubai that offer fixed quotes in the beginning, regardless of how long the project takes. Others ask for hourly charges and offer only open-ended quotes. This means the work may cost you more than your expectations.
7: Does the company offer 24/7 services?
If anything goes wrong, will you be able to contact the electrician? Are they easily accessible? Will they work during weekends? Whether or not you ever need them, knowing that the professionals are available round the clock will give you peace of mind.
When you put your thoughts into the selection of an electrician, do not forget to ask the above questions. You can add even more relevant questions to your list to make it more effective. With the help of above-listed queries, you will be more likely to find a professional who can get the electrical job done better than the average electrician.
