Dangers of DIY Electrical
Our Electricians Have the Training Required for Safe Electrical Work
If electrical work were simple and safe, Mister Sparky® wouldn’t exist. It’s as simple as that! Becoming an electrician takes time and work for good reason—working on electrical systems requires training and experience to avoid dangerous or even deadly accidents.
Trusting someone to do electrical work with no training is like receiving medical treatment from someone who didn’t go to school to provide it!
At the minimum, an electrician attends courses for months and then follows their education with at least four years of on-the-job training. In many instances, electricians spend up to two years in a classroom to learn their trade! So, no one should fall into the trap of thinking that their electrical needs are a DIY project.
Danger 1: Electrical Shock
A static shock can deliver nearly 20,000 volts of electricity at once and is not deadly. However, a home’s 110-volt outlet can cause severe injuries and death if not handled properly. These two facts reveal one thing: electricity requires knowledge for safe handling.
Danger 2: Code Compliance
Electricians are familiar with all local codes and regulations for their service area. While an out-of-code DIY electrical job might work, it could cause problems with inspections if you ever decide to move from your home.
Danger 3: Fire Hazards
Electricians don’t go through years of training only to avoid shocking themselves or others. They also learn how to produce electrical work with a reduced risk of fire. Faulty wiring can create a fire risk that might not cause a fire for months or years. Hiring a professional electrician provides the peace of mind that your wiring will be as safe as possible.
