Wiring Issues

This week we came across a couple of common issues with wiring – common because these issues occur regularly as most owners will never see them. Faulty wiring is a common cause of household fires and these issues can get progressively worse over time.

These issues were found in 2 houses during Building Inspections in Melbourne’s inner south.
