We recommend that you have preventative maintenance done by a licensed electrical contractor. The cost of such a service is worth every penny when you are talking about preventing electrical shocks or fires.
They should check all circuits, accessible receptacles and switches; looking for overloaded circuits, reversed polarity, loose connections, broken or damaged devices and missing covers. The main purpose would be to identify electrical shock hazards and make recommendations that may be needed in your home.
Make sure that you do your homework and choose a licensed electrical contractor with proper insurance. Any electrical work should be done by a licensed electrical contractor with the appropriate permits. Preventative maintenance would not require a permit unless a serious issue was identified.
We highly recommend the staff at Solutions Electrical. You may recognize their name from their work with Mike Holmes. They are a great team of highly skilled individuals, with similar beliefs as us. Solutions Electrical President, Frank Cozzolino once said “we feel it has become our responsibility to provide exceptional knowledge by educating our customers with skill and workmanship at a fair price.”
