TV Wall Mounting Brisbane – What Can Go Wrong If You DIY

TV Wall Mounting Brisbane – What Can Go Wrong If You DIY

Wall mounting TVs is an intricate and detailed process. There are plenty of aspects that need to be taken into account, including the type of walls of the room as well as the brackets and cables needed to mount the TV. A TV wall mounting professional from AV Everything in Brisbane would have no problem in considering all of these important details. However, an amateur DIY installer may encounter some problems which could lead to devastating consequences for their house and even their families.

Damaged walls

One thing that can go wrong during amateur TV wall mounting is permanent damage to the walls of your house. When mounting TVs onto walls, it’s important to consider the type of wall it will be attached to. Some types of wood or plasterboard are not strong enough to handle the weight of a TV. It may be necessary to add extra supports behind your plasterboard. Some DIY hopefuls may not even realise that! To ensure your TV is mounted correctly, be sure to hire a professional who knows how to mount TVs on your particular wall.

Another feature that needs to be handled carefully is getting the right screws and brackets for your wall material and the weight of the TV. This includes the amount of screws you need, the length of the screws and the placement of the screws. Using the screws incorrectly can lead to them damaging the wall or even causing the TV to fall! To be certain that your walls won’t be damaged in any way, get one of our friendly TV wall mounting installers to come help you.

Falling TVs

Falling TVs are one of the most common consequences of unprofessional DIY TV mount installation. Not only can they cost you a brand new TV and a wall, they can also cause serious injuries to people and pets. What are the main causes of TVs falling from DIY mounts? One of them has to do with the brackets used for TV mounting. It is vital that an installer knows what they need from their brackets. If they are not the right size, too light weight for the TV, not positioned correctly or not screwed on correctly, they can cause your wide screen TV to come crashing down.

If you’re worried about not being able to choose the correct brackets, there is an easy solution. A professional TV wall mounter from AV Everything has knowledge about TVs and the right brackets for your TV.

Cable issues

Anyone who has ever dealt with TV cables knows that they can be a real pain. But it isn’t enough to just leave them dangling out in the open. Not only can they be an eyesore, they are also a potential danger. Curious children who pull on the cables could end up having a TV crashing down on them. But how can cables be concealed in an effective way?
This is where it is important to have a TV wall mounting specialist. They can install cable channels which conceal the cables and ensure no little hands get onto them. Other problems that involve cables during TV mounting include incompatible cables and incorrect cable installation. Since cables are such an important part in TV installation, you’ll want to be sure to get an expert to deal with it. Save yourself some time and a lot of frustration – hire an AV Everything professional!

Wrong measurements

You’d be surprised how often this can happen in DIY TV mounting installation. You’ll think you have all the lengths and widths down, you install all the brackets and then you realise the measurements are incorrect. Then you’ll have to go through the whole process of dismantling the brackets and re-installing them. Not only is it a bother for you, it will leave a lasting mark on your walls. Avoid this mistake happening in the first place by hiring an AV Everything specialist who is guaranteed to get it all right on the first go. Not only does this save you a lot of fuss, you can be sure every single detail of your wall mounted TV is exact and accurate.

Detrimental to your health

Yes you heard right. If you install your TV incorrectly you could potentially put your health at risk! When installed correctly, wall mounted TVs can eliminate neck aches and reduce eye strain. However, if your TV is installed too high or too low, you run the risk of causing damage to your neck and eye muscles. This can lead to terrible headaches, sore eyes and discomfort for you and your family. Your best course of action is to get a TV installation professional to come and position your TV correctly.
