Faulty electrical wiring in a house is annoying, sure. That light switch that never seems to work properly, or that plug that flips the breaker every time you try to plug something in…inconvenient, yes, but very dangerous as well. It’s even worse if you find out that the wiring problems are due to mice or rats being in your house damaging all your electrics.
Bad electrics can be very dangerous, for example, a finicky light switch that doesn’t always work when you flip it on is indicative of a larger electrical problem that will only lead to more issues that need repair. It might mean that somewhere along the way, the wiring came loose or a piece has cracked internally. If wires and plugs are loose, they could fall out and give an electrical shock to anyone in the way. A faulty light switch is something easily noticed and easily taken care of by a professional. For help with faulty wiring, the services of electricians may be required to get everything back in working order safely and quickly.
There are other obvious problems to be on the lookout for. For instance, sparks or a burning odor coming from an electrical outlet is definitely dangerous, and definitely something a trained electrician should fix.
