Default Electrical hum in my interface

So I've been having pretty relentless problems with electrical hum through my Focusrite Saffire Pro 24. When I plug my guitar straight into the interface I get some hum when playing. Not enough to be a massive problem, but something I'd like to fix. When I'm not playing though, the hum gets really really bad and sounds like really loud electrical current. It's even worse when I take my hands away from the strings.

I imagine this is a common problem, but has anyone found a fix for it? I can't really find any solid fixes online. I've tried other plugs in my house but nowhere seems to be any good.

I record through a macbook pro and find the electrical problems are worst when I have the Saffire Pro plugged into the macbook running from battery, but it's still really bad when it's not plugs into anything (literally just the mains and a guitar plugged into it).

Tomorrow I'm going to try some other interfaces in my house to see if it's a problem with the house, or the Saffire Pro. Does anyone have any suggestions?
