Top Light Repair related questions

Do I need to provide my tools or equipment for my light repair service?

In most cases, no. Many of the Taskers you’ll see on our platform are qualified experts that have built a reputation through years of experience and practice. You can expect your hired light repairman to show up at the worksite with all the necessary tools for checking and repairing your lights. There’s little to no reason to provide them with any tools, as they already know the methods and have the tools that work best for them.   

How long does it take to do a light repair service?

The time it takes to complete a light repair service depends on the complexity of the task. If repairing a light simply means changing out the light bulb, the job can be done in as little as 15 minutes or even less. Should the problem be complex, like rewiring several lights or light fixtures, then expect your repairman to take at least an hour. The most complicated light repairs shouldn’t take more than a couple of hours. 

Can a Tasker also help me with my light repair service?

Sure! If you run a business that specialises in light repair services, you can hire Taskers to help you deliver this service if you’re short on labour. You can employ Taskers for literally thousands of different jobs, even the complicated, not-so-common ones like solar panel installation. Just make a post that contains all the vital specifics about your needs, and you can attract the right Taskers and avoid any confusion.  

Can I repair my Christmas lights by myself?

Yes, you can, but this can be a long and tedious process that can really try your patience! Usually, you’ll have to find the “bad” bulb and replace it or ensure that it’s not loose in its socket, but sometimes it’s not that easy. We suggest you hire a light repair expert on Airtasker if you don’t have the time, patience, tools or all three.

Can a Tasker repair my floor lamp?

Yes! You can find a Tasker to repair various lamp or light fixtures, whether it’s a floor lamp in your living room, ceiling lights in your dining room or even a night light in your kid’s bedroom. The trick is to make a post that explains your light repair needs. List the details of your broken or damaged floor lamp, and trust us, within minutes you’ll be matched with a nearby expert who can fix it.

Can I have my antique lamp repaired or should I just throw it out?

We advise not to throw away your antique lamp until you’ve tried finding an expert to fix it. Even if it’s not worth much at auctions, your antique lamp may have great sentimental value. It would be a shame to toss it out without trying to get it repaired, so we suggest you make a post with all the crucial details about your lamp. You may yet find a repairman or antique restorer, so may consider using our platform first. 

What do light repair services include?

Lighting repair services include all the tasks necessary to fix any damaged, defective or non-working lights in your home. Whether it’s repairing ceiling lights, fluorescent lights, porch lights, bathroom ceiling lights, or any other light in your home or property, skilled electricians can fix it. They can find the cause of the problem, do what’s necessary to fix the issue, then test the repaired lights to ensure that the issue is resolved.  

Troubleshooting the problem

Your hired expert starts by finding out the cause of your lighting issue. They can inspect each part of the defective or non-working light, from the wall switch to its bulbs, wires and wall or ceiling fixtures. Once they have found the root of the problem, they apply the appropriate fix. Note that before your repairman does any repairs, they may shut off the power to avoid any accidents. 

Changing the light bulbs

Most issues with non-working lights are due to old, burnt out or broken light bulbs. This is common with fluorescent lights, which often develop black rings on either end, showing they’ve burned out. Your electrician can remove and change out the old, broken or burnt-out bulbs with new ones. 

They can ensure that the replacement light bulb is of the same wattage and size to ensure they work the same as before. If you don’t have any replacement light bulbs, some light repair experts can go to a nearby store and buy them for you for an additional fee. 

Repairing or replacing the light fixture or switch

Should your hired light repairman find that the light’s fixture is the problem, they can proceed to repair or replace it. They can inspect the contact points of the bulb and light switch for any debris or impurities and clear them out with fine sandpaper or steel wool. They can check the wires for frayed or severed sections and splice fresh connections. 

Should the damage be unrepairable, your light repairman can replace the light fixture with a new one. Some repairmen may offer to purchase the new light fixture at the nearest hardware store or light repair shop if you don’t have any replacement fixtures on hand, but this can cost extra.  

Repairing the wiring

Damage to your lighting can be due to frayed, cut or burnt-out wires that led to a short-circuit and no longer supply a stable current. Repairmen can wire-strip and splice new connections for your lights if needed. 

Testing the lighting

After the repairs, your repairman switches the power back on, and the repaired light is tested. Your repairman turns the light on and off a few times, checking that the light doesn’t flicker and no short-circuits result. 

If the light goes out, flickers or shows other unusual behaviour, your repairman switches the power back off and inspects all the components again. They repeat the inspection and repair process until the light is finally fixed and works without fail.
