Dangerous Wiring Inspection
Dangerous wiring can be the result of several things. The house may have been built decades ago, have the original knob-and-tube wiring, and not have had the wiring updated as needed. Or, perhaps previous homeowners enlisted a home remodeler who wasn't a licensed electrician and didn't pay attention as much as he should have to safety regulations.
However dangerous wiring happened to occur in a home, identifying it and replacing the wiring is essential to your family's safety. Faulty wiring and lighting are responsible for more than 32,000 house fires each year. An overloaded circuit can cause an electrical fire, or a short in the wiring can ignite the wooden beams and drywall that form your walls. If your home was wired prior to 1940, it's wise to have it inspected for knob-and-tube wiring, fused electrical panel and dangerous wiring.
