This spring, why not skip the DIY and let the professionals handle it?

It’s nearly May, and a time of year that’s a very popular time for a bit of DIY. Better weather (hopefully), and more than its fair share of bank holidays (definitely), give you a bit more time to get to grips with some of those little jobs around the house that have been bothering you all winter.

We think DIY is great too. The sense of satisfaction from a job well done is one of spring’s little pleasures, whether it’s a freshly-painted room, a new shelf, or something else.

But we also know there are some things best left to the professionals.

Over-confident tinkering with your home’s plumbing, heating, electrical or gas appliances and systems can have consequences ranging from mild embarrassment to serious (and probably expensive) damage - and in extreme cases, even injury and fatalities.

In particular, when it comes to gas at 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 the gas appliances in your home.

So if you’d rather put your feet up this May, spend your bank holidays doing something more relaxing than your own plumbing, then let the professionals at XP Plumbing and Heating take care of it.

We’re the experts in all things plumbing, heating, drains, bathrooms and more. 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 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.
