To start the new decade on the right track, I contacted Fantastic Services to tackle a few small electrical jobs and odd jobs. I was happy that they recommended David, who could carry out all the work for me. Fantastic Services can help you with everything you need to get your home, garden and office in shape. From electricians to plumbers, carpenters, and painters, they have qualified tradespeople who can make your life easier. In this feature, I’m concentrating on the electrical jobs David did for me.
My List of Electrical Jobs
The main job I had for David put both his electrical and odd job skills to the test. I wanted to get a flat-screen TV wall mounted in the guest bedroom. Fixing the bracket to the wall was a straightforward job. However, the nearest power source was at the other end of the wall. I, therefore, needed an electrical socket installed behind the TV so I could plug it in. I had two options; I could have the electrical cable chased into the wall, or I could have white trunking to cover the wire. I decided on the latter because I didn’t want to have to decorate the wall at this stage. I can always get the cable chased into the wall a few years down the line when that room needs repainting. My main objective was to get the TV hung on the wall and a power source behind it.
The Wall Mounted TV Needed An Electrical Socket Behind
David had already visited my apartment to undertake a site visit. We had agreed that David purchases the trunking for the cables which he did. He discussed how the trunking would look and how he could best disguise it and fill in any gaps. I was pleased with the result. I now have a TV in the spare room which will make my mum and other guests happy.
Testing Out the Wall Hung TV In The Guest Bedroom
The other main electrical job was to replace two wall lights in the hallway. When we moved into the apartment two years ago, we had a full refurbishment. At the time, I didn’t want to splash out on expensive wall lights because I was trying to reign in my budget. I’d been thinking about buying the Anglepoise Original 1227 Wall Lights for some time, so I decided to take action. I showed David the light bulbs I had bought for these wall lights, but he explained they were wrong and advised on the correct ones I needed. That was super helpful because matching your lightswitch up with the lights you have and the bulbs you need is a bit more confusing than you’d imagine! Anyway, the result is I now have the new wall lights hung with the correct bulbs, and they look fantastic! I’m glad I got around to upgrading these because it was worth the effort.
David Attending To The Wall Lights
The final job was to replace the shaving socket in the ensuite bathroom. We had the socket installed when we had the ensuite refurbished, but it has never worked. It means that I need to go to the other bathroom to charge up my toothbrush. I purchased a replacement and David had this sorted in no time at all. I’m delighted that this now works, I can give my teeth a proper clean with a fully charged brush.
