Aging Electrical Systems Pose a Fire Threat to Your Nashua Residence

Electrical fires can result when circuits are overloaded and the wires and panel are old or not up to code. Contact SERVPRO to remediate fire damage.

Team SERVPRO Provides Both a Home Fire Risk Assessment as Well as Fire Remediation Services

Most homeowners do not actively think about the various threats to their houses. In fact, many find themselves at a complete loss when it comes to disasters like a fire occurring, wondering just how to pick up the pieces and restore their home back to the way that it used to be. Fortunately, there is hope for your fire-ridden Nashua home in the form of certified and qualified professional restoration services.

While smoking hazards continue to be a leading cause of residential fires, another serious concern is electrical wiring shorting out. Many area homes are several decades old, and these were not all built completely to code or with the right fail-safes in place to prevent combustion and to overheat which leads to sparks and flames. Now you have fire damages to deal with in your Nashua home, but fortunately, SERVPRO is always here to help.

One of the significant concerns that you as a homeowner need to keep in mind is the quality of your home's construction. If you can see this stability and strength waning in areas, there is a good chance that the electrical lines (in conduits or not) throughout your home experience the same struggle with their age and perpetual demand.

Another consideration about the aging electrical system is their inability to sustain the power that they once could. Constant draws on the fuse box for high-powered devices and appliances can lead to overheating and eventual combustion when the lines fail to keep up with the demand of the outlet.

Often these vulnerable points happen within the walls of your home, forcing our SERVPRO team to remove portions of drywall and paneling to get to the heart of the damage the fire has caused.

While it would benefit you to have the lines tested and inspected before such issues ever happen, many homeowners do not consider the possibility of a risk. If you experience a fire like this in your home, you can count on our SERVPRO of Nashua fire damage technicians to help you overcome the mess and restore the damage efficiently. Give us a call anytime at (603) 889-2311.
