Have you ever thought about how many wires are running through your home? All of the electrical outlets, light fixtures, and cable hookups have some kind of wiring to make them work. What happens when these wires get old and outdated? One of the best things you can do as a homeowner, potential buyer, or renter is to hire a licensed electrical contractor to do a thorough electrical inspection. You do not want to be on the wrong end of an electrical fire.
