Rewiring a House – Is It Messy, Dusty And Disruptive?

Rewiring is no doubt one of the biggest maintenance tasks a homeowner can face. Each property is different and some may not require the electricians to make as much mess, but the majority of electrical rewires require the walls to be cut, chased and chiseled. This can result in a lot of dust, mess and re-plastering works.

Full Electrical Rewire projects take place during a change of ownership, or during renovation works. This is the ideal opportunity to rewire your home as often the client can take time away from the property, and it’s likely they are planning other refurbishment works such as plastering and decorating anyway.

There is a large portion of our clients who are not as fortunate and have to take on a complete rewire while they stay in the property. This can be for many reasons. Maybe the electrics have been overlooked for many years and have now became unsafe. Perhaps a landlord cant obtain the necessary paperwork to rent a property until the electrics are upgraded.

If you moving home or about to take on any decoration its really important you check your electrics first, before going ahead.

RJA Electrical Services offer as free visual safety check to all potential rewiring clients. Simply call us on 01795 484 115 or get in touch through our website.

So you need to rewire your home unexpectedly. How can we help and what steps can we take to minimize the upheaval and mess?

Protection – Preparation Is Key.

It’s vital we make as many preparations to the home before we start to minimize dust penetration. Our electricians will spend time before we start dust sheeting all your belongings. Preparation is key, more time spent at this stage will reduce the mess at the end. Need help with preparing? We can help here too…

Dust Extraction

The machines and tools we use when rewiring have dust extraction attachments. This helps move the dust into our hoovers and again helps reduce the left over mess. Dust extraction is not completely effective but it certainly helps.

Final Clean

When rewiring is complete our team perform a full clean of the property. We usually receive great feedback on our teams efforts at this stage. Every room is hoovered out and each surface wiped down to remove any left over dust.

Is That Enough, Can We Move Back In?

So your home is fully rewired and our electricians have made your home safe… can you move back in and carry on as normal?

Yes, but you may need another clean.

If you have not selected our plastering option on your quote you will have to re-plaster the walls and then decorate, but what about the mess is it properly cleaned?

In our experience we find the property could need another clean when we are gone. Dust will settle a little again over night and you may find a hoover is required and another wipe over.

Professional Cleaning Service

Many of our clients decide to use an additional service we provide which is to have a thorough professional clean carried out a day after we leave… This is also known as a builders clean, or a deep clean.

There is an additional cost to this service, however clients often see this is good value as they do not wish to do any cleaning at all, or perhaps they are not able too.
