Experienced Electrical Wire Repair in Des Moines

In Des Moines, most houses were built prior to 1956, which means that unless you or a prior owner have already updated the electrical wire, it’s likely time to ask about whole-home rewiring service. Homes built in 1956 are more than 65 years old, which means there may be many electrical systems that need some upgrading.

After all, modern households use more electric devices than ever, making it important to keep your electrical wiring in good condition. You may also need to upgrade outlets and the panel box connected to your wiring. Have a licensed electrician take a look at your entire home system to find out what you might need to upgrade to bring your home up to the most recent code standards.


How do you know you might need new electrical wire? Some of the most common signs include: 

Scorch marks on outlets or plugs
Sparking when you plug something in
Frequently tripped circuits or dimming lights
When you notice any of these signs of an electrical fault, you should act quickly to address the issue. A qualified electrician can often handle rewiring your entire home in just a couple of days of work, even if you also need new outlets or an upgraded panel box.
