When things quit working right in your Palm Springs, CA home it starts to feel less like home and more like a death trap, which is why it is important to stay on top of the electrical writing in your home. The problem with wiring issues is that electrical issues also pose a safety risk. Improper electrical writing or old wiring can lead to a fire or electrocution of a member of your family. For that reason, if you have any reason to suspect that your home may benefit from rewiring this is not a task that you want to put on the backburner. FEMA states that about 10% of all home fires are caused by outdated electrical writing within homes, so if your home is over 30 years old it may be time to think about rewiring.
