Here is a simple fact: nothing lasts forever. All right, some things last longer than others. For example, Mount Everest has lasted for some 60 million years, and it is likely to carry on for a bit longer. However, if you have a pet dog or cat it may only live for between 5 and 20 years depending on the breed.

But here is something else you may not know or even have ever considered. That’s the wiring in your home. We don’t think about it because it is all hidden out of sight. As we have said elsewhere, when you switch the light on, it comes on. But the wiring in your home will not last forever. In fact, according to Screwfix, “If a home hasn’t been rewired for 25-30 years or more, it may need wiring work to bring it up to current standards.

Yes, that little. The guide goes on to say that there can be other signs that a home needs rewiring such as light bulbs blowing often, switches made of cast iron, no labelling on the consumer unit, the consumer unit has a wooden back, broken or cracked sockets, less than two plug sockets in each room, plugs getting warm, and more.

Wow! Who would have thought it? But the fact remains that it is essential that your home electrical wiring is safe because the possible dangers do not bear thinking about. This is why, if your home wiring has not been checked in the last ten years or so, you need a qualified electrician in Bridgwater to come out and check it all over for you. The old saying is “better safe than sorry” and it is very true.

If you log in to Google and type “electrician near me” you will come up with us at Sparkylocal very near the top of the list.

As we said earlier, we don’t think about the wiring because it is out of sight, so we don’t think of checking it. However, if you have a car, you have it serviced and checked over regularly by experts, and that makes sense.

If your wiring hasn’t been checked recently, just look for an “electrician near me” on Google and give us a call. Better safe than sorry.
