An important aspect of interior inspection is electrical wiring. Homeowners should take notice if the lights are dimmer than before, or they flicker once in a while. Similarly, any strange noises, like popping or buzzing, coming from the outlets, switches or appliances should never be ignored. These could be indications of a serious problem or even a potentially life-threatening hazard. In such situations, an electrician should be consulted ASAP, as wiring may need to be replaced or circuits updated.
By being diligent with home inspection and maintenance now, homeowners could save themselves a lot of time, money and stress in the future. For further examples of home damage warning signs, please see the accompanying resource.
