Listen to Your Home Inspector about Electricity
You paid good money to have a good home inspection by one of the best home inspectors in your area. So now what? You have purchased the home, and there are a list of small or large issues pointed out by your home inspector in their report. Time and time again we see new homeowner deciding or forgetting to fix faulty outlets or other electrical issues pointed out during the home inspection. Remember your home inspectors are here to work. They are working for you, and pointing out issues that can be harmful and potentially life threatening. Electricity is nothing to scoff at. Outlets with no ground wiring, faulty or missing GFCI (Ground Fault Circuit Interrupters) should always be fixed when documented by a certified home inspection expert. GFCI's and proper wiring codes were put in place to keep people safe and secure, without them the chances or likelihood of electrocution increase dramatically. Water and electricity don't mix, so if you have outlets in your kitchens or bath area that are to close to water sources, have the potential to be splashed or be touched with wet hands, or are not GFCI protected please make sure to get those replaced, fixed or rewired before other small issues.
