    What’s involved in burnishing a floor? And how about buffing a floor? What are the differences between each? What are the pros and cons to each approach? If I hired a floor fitter, which option would be the cheapest? Is there much of a difference in the quality of the outcome of using each of these options? Thanks for your time.

    is it safe to spray an antiviral spray on light switches? How can I disinfect light switches safely in general? For instance, if I do so with the switch turned off will this be safer an if so, how long should I wait before turning the light back on after applying a disinfectant of some kind? Thanks.

    What is an EN 60204 installation test? When it is required and who can perform and certify this test? Are there any similar tests that might be needed during scenarios where this particular test is needed? In other words, basically will there be many cases where I’d need to have a variety of different tests performed at the same time as having an EN 60204 test undertaken?

    Can a registered/qualified electrician let another person who he claims is an electrician to do an electrical job in my property and self certify the electrical job when he was not supervising the friend/apparently an electrician the whole time but only in the morning telling him what has to be done and returning hours later when his friend has finished the electrical job? Also, he refuses to provide me any information if his friend is qualified and registered as a qualified electrician to do the job? Thank you.
