For this reason, it is important to take proper care of an electrical repair when the damage happens. You may consider turning this electrical repair into your next DIY project, but it’s best to leave it to someone with experience.
- Making an electrical repair can be dangerous. Fire, serious injury, or death can occur from an improper repair.
- Adjusting wiring without the inspection from a licensed electrical inspector is illegal in some states.
- DIY electrical repairs could lead to property damage.
