Got a broken switch?
Switch repair looks like a small and simple job, easily done yourself. But it requires a basic level of expertise and even involves a certain amount of danger, so it is best not to try your hand at it. A little broken switch may seem easy to fix, but it is after all a power outlet repair issue that deals with electricity. Let the pros deal with this one – download the free HomeGenie app for Android and iOS and you can use the efficient services of any of our highly trained electricians to do the job.
Switch damage may be caused due to various factors including faulty installation, loose wiring, power supply fluctuations and even overuse or misuse. Whatever the reason, it is imperative that you recognise the signs at an early stage, before real damage is done. It is important to be sensitive to switches that feel hot to the touch, look out for sparks while turning switches on, and stop using the switch/outlet if there is a tingling feeling or mild shock on contact. All of these are signs of some electrical fault which must be addressed as soon as possible. HomeGenie’s professionals will deal with your switch and power outlet issues using our inspection based format. This will involve a call or visit to diagnose the exact problem and make up an estimate of costs which will be provided to you online. The estimate will depend on the extent of damage, the material used to fix it and the time required for the job. Also, HomeGenie’s cost estimates are fair, competitive and affordable, making sure you get the best prices for a job well done. If you are satisfied with the budget, the service will be carried out, else a call-out charge will be collected. Keeping the safety of your home and family in mind, we ensure that the Genies sent to do the job have been vetted and are reliable. To keep your home safe from electrical accidents, you could also make sure that wiring and connections are done carefully at the time of installation, that there is a steady power supply to your home, that switches and outlets are not misused and that overused ones are replaced on time. HomeGenie’s power outlets and switches repair is a scheduled service but can be booked urgently through the Same Day provision as well. This means that in case you have an issue that needs to be worked out in a hurry, all you need to do is place the booking between 8 AM and 12 PM and we will have a Genie looking into your switches and power outlets by 6 PM that day.
