Drilling into a wall sounds like a quick and easy thing to do, but I’ve picked up quite a few helpful tips and hacks along the way. Read this list of wall drilling hacks to get the job done with ease next time around:
Use a digital detector
The worst thing that can happen when drilling a hole into a wall is accidentally drilling into electrical wires or pipes. Use a digital detector so you can establish where any electrical wiring or pipes are behind the wall before you start drilling.
Pick up dust with an envelope
This is a handy tip I’ve picked up over the years. If you know where you are going to drill, open an envelope and tape it to the wall underneath the spot where you are going to drill. This will help pick up any dust from the drilling so you don’t have to vacuum and clean up dust afterwards.
Use the right drill and drill bit
There are many different types of drills on the market. Generally, a lightweight DIY drill will be perfect for drilling a simple hole into a wall, but if you’re unsure about drilling a hole into masonry, concrete or ceramic, for example, rather hire a professional.
