One of the most common hazard/safety concerns in a home is the electrical system. Over the years we have really improved the safety of electrical systems. As I inspect homes, I see a lot of "handyman work" and this is very concerning. Always have a qualified and licensed electrical contractor perform any alterations or repairs to your home's electrical system, your family depends on it.
