Faulty or old wiring is a significant cause of house fires. Old wiring cannot power all of the electrical appliances associated with our modern lives. Circuits can easily become overloaded, potentially leading to fires. Dodgy wiring can leave our homes unsafe and open to potential fires.
What to watch out for:
Flickering lights – this can be a sign of an issue with your wiring
Circuit breakers and RCD's tripping
Burning smell / fishy smell
Visible burns/scorch marks to sockets

THE PROBLEM: Our Adams on-call Electrician received a call out during the Christmas holiday period. There had been a fire located in the switchboard at the property.
ADAMS' SOLUTION: Our Adams Electrician arrived on site, and they inspected the switchboard after the fire and organised Delta to isolate the power at the street. During this time, the tenants moved out of the property while Adams could return to rewire all fire-damaged circuits and replace the switchboard with a new board with RCD and MCB protection. Tenants returned to the property knowing their switchboard was now safe.
Problem solving easily.
