31 Aug Flickering Lights Safety | St. Louis Electrician | Mister Sparky Electrician St. Louis
Do you have annoying flickering lights in your home that you can’t seem to fix? While flickering lights may seem like a simple nuisance to a homeowner, Mister Sparky understands that the presence of such a faulty light can be a sign of a more serious underlying problem.
Flickering Lights and House Fires
Believe it or not, a main cause of house fires is loose wiring. And often times loose wiring presents itself as flickering lights. Because of this, Mister Sparky technicians take the presence of flickering lights very seriously. A Mister Sparky electrician will not only try to fix the immediate problem of the flickering light, but will inspect the home thoroughly to ensure that there is no presence of loose wiring anywhere else in the home.
According to the U.S. Fire Administration, house fires still occur in over 1 million American homes each year. These fires result in billions of dollars’ worth of damages, and thousands of lives lost, and even more thousands injured. The devastating toll of house fires serves as a reminder for us to be extra cautious when inspecting a home with the presence of flickering lights.
