Commercial Electricians in Forest Hill

The week before last we had a call out from a landlord in Forest Hill who was renting out a 3 bedroom flat to students. He needed a Forest Hill commercial electrician because the power had gone off. There is nothing particularly unusual about that, we get similar call outs each month.

But what makes this a blog-worthy incident is what we found when we arrived. As electricians in Forest Hill, we see all manner of electrical mistakes, from bodged DIY jobs to overloading circuits with appliances. This incident serves as a warning to all landlords in South London […]

Richmond and Sutton Kitchen Wiring Jobs

As commercial and domestic electricians we take on a wide variety of different work and have done a couple of very contrasting kitchen wiring jobs recently. The first was on a house renovation in Richmond whilst the second was a commercial kitchen further south in Sutton. In Richmond, it was a case of taking out 50 year old wiring and starting from scratch whilst the commercial kitchen job was the installation of a new bratt pan (chip scuttle) and oven.
The Richmond house had been recently bought and the new owners were having the kitchen extended and modernised […]
