I put up with that broken light for 2 years! I didn't want to pay a fortune to get it fixed, it should be alright if I leave it alone.
This is what some of our customers say to us at Herts and Beds Electrical when we come round to fix their small electrical jobs.
"Two years I put up with no light in the downstairs toilet" said one customer. "Why didn't you call me in sooner to get it fixed?" I said.
"I sort of got used to it. Also, I don't want to get ripped off" said the customer. "We have a set price for all small jobs. Fixing broken lights and sockets is bread and butter work" I said. "Well I've called you in now" said the customer.

Will it cost a fortune? - No, most small repairs can be fixed in 1 to 2 hours time. You will should be told what the charges are before the workis carried out.

How can you trust a company if you don't know them? - Nowadays you can go online and read online reviews. Good sources for reviews are Google business profile and Checkatrade. You can read some of our reviews here.
Another way to check a company out is to give them a call. Are they friendly? Do they want the work? Do you like them? Trust your gut feelings. If you come off the phone and you are happy, chances are they will be the company for you. If you come off the phone and you are unsure or didn't like the way you were talked to then chances are they are not the company for you.

When you have a faulty Switch, socket, fan, light and so on. You have a piece of equipment that still has electricity running through it.
Not using it has not made it safe. Leaving it has not made it safe. In fact the longer you leave it, sometimes the worse the fault can get.
Arcing occurs when there is a loose connection, and the electricity jumps across the terminals to make a connection. Lots of heat occurs when this happens and can in the worse case scenario cause a fire.
