REWIRING OR PART REWIERS

Cables, switches, socket outlets and other accessories deteriorate with use and misuse, and require regular checks.

A huge number of UK homes still have old electrical wiring. It’s unsafe, it could be a fire hazard and may mean higher bills too. And if you’re thinking about selling it could affect the value of your home or office and will be flagged in the building survey.
Black rubber cables: black cables going into your consumer unit were phased out in the 60s. They’re insulated with rubber (which rots) and could cause regular trips and lots of inconvenience for you. Swap them for modern and safe, grey or white PVC insulation today. Lead or fabric-coated cables are museum pieces and should be changed ‘toot sweet’!
