To avoid electrical-related accidents, it’s always best to undergo electrical safety inspections. You don’t want to risk the lives of your loved ones, nor do you want to risk losing all your possessions and valuables to an electrical fire. Electrical wiring in a house is the most complex and unseen part of your home; most components and wiring are hidden within the walls above and below the living area.
According to National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), electrical wiring and lighting equipment ranked first in direct fire causes in the number of home fires. In 2014-2018, electrical distribution or lighting equipment, such as wiring, lighting, cords, and plugs, was involved in an estimated average of roughly 34,000 (10%) reported home structure fires per year. These incidents caused an average of 470 (18%) civilian deaths, 1,100 civilian injuries (10%), and $1.4 billion (19%) in direct property damage annually.
