It’s amazing how many dodgy electrical set-ups are in daily use. Take this example that a Sharpe Services tech came across the other day.
These outside powerpoints servicing a patio were an overload disaster waiting to happen. Never take risks with household electrics. If it doesn’t look right, chances are it’s dangerous and you must call in the professionals, such as Sharpe Services, to remedy it.
The small cost of getting powerpoints fitted correctly and meeting the industry’s code of practice far outweighs the risk of a circuit overload and possible electrocution or house fire.
Also, you should never run an extension cord through a wall, doorway or window, or over a beam.
If you think you need to rely on extension cords, think again. A simple upgrade of powerpoints is the solution. Sharpe Services can supply and install a range of powerpoints, including ones with fast-charging USB sockets for computers and smartphones.
