Call in the experts (image)

You might be an expert when it comes to screwing in lightbulbs, and your skills with a paintbrush may be second-to-none. These and the household fixes we listed here at https://crestasconfessions.com/ are all things you can do yourself. But then there are those jobs you really shouldn’t have a go at alone. For all manner of health and safety reasons, sometimes it is better for you to call out the experts. Take the following as examples.

Electrical faults – Okay, so you can probably change a fuse, and it’s not difficult to find the right switch to flip in the fuse box. However, when it comes to electrical wiring, you really should leave it to Tom Cruise when he’s in Mission Impossible mode – should he cut the blue or red wire? – or, and more realistically, a qualified electrician. The consequences will be shocking if you don’t.

Gas leaks – Quite often caused by a fault in your gas mains, an incorrectly placed appliance, or a faulty boiler. If you have spotted the telltale signs of a gas list – read https://www.medicalnewstoday.com/ – then you need to call your gas company for one of their certified inspectors to come and deal with the situation. If it was your boiler at fault, then you need to call a service such as that found here, http://ecosafe.co/boiler-services-in-poole/, and replace your old boiler with something safe and new. Otherwise… kaboom!!

A leaky roof – There are two dangers present here. For starters, if you don’t know what you’re doing when you’re scaling the roof, you can make matters worse. What started as a leak may soon become a downpour. Secondly, if you have a fear of heights, then you really shouldn’t get up on the ladder anyway. Even the bravest of people can come a cropper after falling, so you are better off calling a professional roofer to get the job done properly.

Toxic mold – You know you have mold when you see the unsightly black and green spores on your walls and furnishings. The air will be damp and rank as well. Mold can be avoided by allowing more ventilation into high-moisture areas (such as your bathroom and basement), and you can get rid of mild cases yourself with supermarket cleaners. However, if your home is suffering from toxic mold – find out more at https://www.thebalance.com/ – then you need to call in the professionals to remove it. Dealing with it yourself could cause all manner of health issues, and even death from poisoning. That’s how serious this problem is.

Wall removals – It’s not often you would want to remove a wall, unless you were renovating your home. Now, while it can be fun to go super-crazy with a sledgehammer, you may end up doing more damage than expected. You can damage the pipework and electrics in your home, and you may very well cause structural damage as well. Your home will come tumbling down faster than a tower of Jenga blocks after an ill-conceived move. Instead, hire a professional building engineer to manage your renovation and wall-destroying, and you will reduce the chances of turning your home into rubble.


If you ever needed an excuse to put your feet up and do less work, then we have given you plenty of reasons in this article. For the health and safety of you and your family, always call out the experts. 

Remember to keep on slaying,

See you next time xoxo
