Doing some DIY? Stay safe - know your limits!

Did you get up to some home improvement over the long weekend? Or maybe you’ve got some DIY planned for the next bank holiday?

Nearly a third of UK households are doing the same, according to a survey from the Gas Safe Register.

We think DIY is great too. That sense of satisfaction you get from a freshly-painted wall, a nicely-hung shelf, or even something more daring like a bit of plastering, is one of life’s little pleasures.

But as professionals, we also know there are some things best left to us!

In particular, when it comes to gas and your home, it’s just not worth the risk. Tinkering with your gas oven or gas fire might seem like a temptingly simple job, but it’s dangerous - and in many circumstances illegal - for anyone not qualified and Gas Safe registered to work on gas appliances.

So if you’d rather put your feet up over the next bank holiday weekend, and let the professionals take care of it, get in touch with XP Plumbing and Heating.

We’re the experts in all things plumbing and heating. And we can take care of the electrical side of things too, so you won’t have to worry about juggling a gaggle of different tradespeople!

And from our HQ in Sidcup, our friendly, experienced plumbers and engineers in their distinctive vehicles have great reach throughout the local area - including Eltham, Chislehurst, Bexleyheath, Bromley, Greenwich, Blackheath - and beyond that too, out into the rest of London and north Kent.
