Home Living : June 8th 2010
8 HLF - HOME LIVING: NORTH WEST, Tuesday, June 8, 2010 Check the electrics » ADVERTISING FEATUREHOMELIVING In winter every household will buy electrical appliances and use more electricity. It's important to thoroughly check all electrical appliances before buying. But equally important is to make sure your electrics are safe. Every householder in NSW has a legal responsibility to keep their home safe, including the way it uses electricity. The NSW Fair Trading has few tips to ensure there are no electrical mishaps this winter. Regular maintenance It's vital to keep your appliances, electrical wiring, fittings, switchboard and earthing connections (particularly for properties over 25 years old) in good working order. If you ever have, or suspect a problem, always contact a licensed electrician. You can check if your electrician is properly licensed by asking to see their electrical contractor's licence, doing a licence check or call Fair Trading on 13 32 20. Certificate of compliance If you have electrical work done, your electrician should give you a uniquely numbered Certificate of Compliance Electrical Work to show the work has been tested and checked to ensure it complies with the regulations. Safety switches Install an electrical safety switch if there is not one already. Test safety switches every three months and if it fails, have a licensed electrician check it. Also, if your house was built before 1977 it is unlikely to have an earth rod and you should consider having one installed. Contact your landlord or agent If you're renting, report electrical problems to your landlord or managing agent immediately. Landlords have a legal obligation to ensure all electrical installations and fittings on their property are kept in safe order. What to do in an emergency If urgent medical attention is required, call 000 for assistance. You should also call the emergency number on your electricity bill to arrange to make your electrical installation safe. Verticals Hollands Shutters Venetians Awnings 50% OFF Revitalise Your Tiles & Hard Surfaces! The great thing about tiles is that they outlast many other floor coverings. Unfortunately, over time, dirt can become ingrained in the tiles and grout joints, which can be very hard to remove by home owners. At Tile Cleaning Solutions, we have a way of cleaning that "hard to remove" dirt from tiles. The process we use utilises hot water at high pressure to remove all the in-ground dirt and oils from the tiles and grout joints. A powerful vacuum simultaneously removes the water and dirt from the floor, leaving it totally clean, just like the first day the tiles were installed. It sounds messy...it isn't. Because all the cleaning is completed in a dome that is attached to the floor, there is no mess or overspray. We can clean and/or seal all internal and external tiles, pavers, stone surfaces, stencilcrete, stencilled & concrete driveways. MINOR REPAIRS ALSO DONE BY A QUALIFIED TILER.
