DIY SOS!

patch-2328289_960_720.jpg

When we carry out any decorating or DIY jobs in our homes, we always imagine perfect results. After all, how hard can painting, wallpapering, or doing some small maintenance jobs actually be? Well, if you aren’t very experienced, you will find that they can actually be a lot more difficult than you could imagine!

So, what happens when something goes wrong? If you do ever end up having a major DIY SOS moment, you will definitely need to follow these useful steps…

Make Sure You Are Safe

First and foremost, you have to make sure that your mistake or accident doesn’t put you or anyone else in any danger. If your SOS is just that you have knocked over a tin of paint, then this, of course, won’t be a problem. However, if you have somehow damaged the property and made it unsafe, you might want to get out of the house. Similarly, if you have been working on your plumbing system and something goes wrong, make sure you turn off your water. Or else your home might flood! Once you are 100% sure that everyone is safe and not at risk from being hurt, you can then move onto the next step.

Tidy Up

There’s a good chance that making a mistake or damaging something is going to cause a bit of a mess. So, you will need to tidy up before you do anything else. Clearing the area will then make it easier to get on with any repairs you need to make.

Call In The Experts

If you have caused quite a bit of damage, you might need to call in some experts to fix things. Or you might just want to hire someone to finish the job if you are completely sick of things! Siding and painting services can help cover up any mistakes you’ve made while decorating either the interior or exterior of your property. If you have damaged the structure of your building in any way, you may need to call in a building expert. Don’t worry if you accidentally break any wooden furniture - a carpenter will be able to come to your help! Don’t forget that it’s not a good idea to work with the electrical wiring in your home to start off with - hire a trained electrician for these kinds of jobs from the beginning, as you might make a fatal mistake!

Call Your Insurance Company

Making a DIY or decorating mistake can often end up being very costly. Thankfully, if your home is fully insured, you will be able to see if your provider will be willing to pay out in this situation. Unfortunately, though, if they deem that the mistake has occurred through your own fault, you might not be able to make a claim. Read through your policy thoroughly before you do try to claim so that you know whether or not you have a good case.

Don’t panic if you ever make a DIY mistake - take a deep breath and figure out how to solve it!
