Hampden County Wildlife Removal Tip:

What Can Pictures Of Open Electrical Wires Tell Us? - If you look at pictures of open electrical wires, you will most likely see a potential fire hazard. However, it is different looking at a picture and being able to identify a problem than it is to know how to live safely in the presence of power lines. We can't imagine life today without electricity and often take it for granted, so many of us are not aware of spotting what can be a potential fire and safety hazard. Knowing how to spot a potential problem, as well as frequently checking for open electrical wires can save you. Also, properly covering electrical wires can keep them protected from possible rodent invasions.

The first thing you should do is check to make sure that the wire is not defective. You will know when to replace a wire if any part of it, no matter how small, is open, or if any wires are bear. You will also want to check the area for any signs of rodents. If you've had rodents, rats or even mice through your home and bear wires you are at risk for a fire. If you think there is a problem with your electrical wiring and not with your device, then you should never attempt to open the plug case. This puts you at risk of getting electrocuted. Only a certified electrician is qualified to handle this. Make sure to have your roof carefully inspected. There is a chance that faulty wiring in your attic can spark a fire.
