Faulty Electrical Wiring Caused Fire

Bill’s Quality Electric, LLC shares this electrically-related news about a bar fire due to a faulty electrical upgrade that started a fire and damaged much of the interior of the building. If you need electrical wiring done for your home or business, be sure to hire a licensed electrician. Most states require an electrical contracting license and proper insurance and a state master licensed electrician to do electrical wiring for homes or businesses. This requirement is to help avoid electrically-related fires and possible injuries and fatalities that go along with them. We’re noticing here in the Dallas metro, we’re getting more and more calls to fix and look at electrical wiring clearly not done by licensed, competant electricians. You can verify the licensing of any electrician in the state of Texas by going to TDLR’s website. You can also file a complaint against an unlicensed electrician through TDLR. Stay Electrically Safe with a licensed electrician!
