How our fault finding and electrical repair service is done

  • Issue analysis – The service begins with a comprehensive evaluation of the reported issue. Understanding the electrical problem in depth allows us to assess the damage, as well as determine its underlying cause.
  • Fault documentation – Your electrician records each possible power source and other contributing factors meticulously. This comprehensive documentation serves as a testament to our thorough approach and is crucial for testing our diagnostic hypotheses.
  • Process of elimination – After collating all possibilities, we employ a methodical elimination process. We exhaustively investigate each probability until we isolate the most plausible explanation for the damage inflicted on your property.
  • Finding the root cause – Through meticulous tests, the electrician identifies the exact electrical fault, whether it's bad wiring or a malfunctioning switch. Then he gets to work to fix it.
  • Power back on – Once the fault is identified and corrected, the focus shifts to power restoration. The electrician performs a series of tests and repairs to confirm the rectification of the issue.
