If you are looking for electrical work to be done at your home or office then be careful in selecting the electrician because hiring an unprofessional can cost you a real accident. Handling electric work is an art to do and is not a fun thing to do as high risks are involved. The common risk involved is of short circuit which can set other things on fire and lives in danger.
So finding a good electrician is a must but the question is how to find a good electrician and that too in a city like Dubai. You may ask your friends or relatives to recommend a good electrician to you but to get the best one for this job you need to look for some things.
As mentioned above, you can get the person for all your electrical works by asking your friends or relatives but make sure that your friend or relative was satisfied with the electrical work done and that too at reasonable service charges. A professional will always use high quality materials such as fuse, wires, etc.
Second option would be too look in local directories or yellow pages, for example if you are looking for electrical services in Dubai then try to find out on local classifieds and services website to get contact details of all available electricians.
Third option is to ask at the shops which sell materials for electrical works. Usually all professional electricians do purchase the materials from such shops and also ask shopkeepers to recommend them for any electrical work in nearby area. You may get the contact details of electricians from such shops and can ask the shop owners about the skills and experience of the person they are recommending.
Fourth option is to look for contractors who do offer every kind of services, like electrical services in Dubai can be found at companies offering handymen services. Though it’s an expensive option but you can trust on the quality of services they offer by their ratings and popularity.
Once you are done with finding some good options to choose from, have a discussion over your requirements and ask the electrician how he will approach towards the job. But before getting started, make sure that the selected electricians do have a license to perform electrical works. This way it will be easier for you to judge the qualifications and experience of the electrician. Make sure that the person does have an insurance policy in case of any mishap otherwise you will need to pay for all the treatment and loss. Do ask about the references or recent work they did for any company etc, this way you will be able to understand the proficiency level of the person.
The reason behind asking all these questions and doing research work is because the electrical works needs to be done with care and efficiency, especially if you are looking for electrical work to be done for your new home or office because at that time you will need to have proper wiring and installation of different switches and points.
Make sure to discuss the cost you will have to pay for all your required electrical works and it’s recommended to prefer the quality over price in this matter i.e. paying some extra dirham to a good electrician is far more affordable than working with an inexperienced electrician.
