1.  Outdated electrical systems
If your home/ commercial properties are more than a few years old you need to be on guard for potential electrical problems.  In many cases the original electrical systems were sufficient for that time period but now may be very outdated.  They often have ungrounded outlets or are old aluminum wiring instead of copper.  These issues make the structure susceptible to electrical fires.  For these buildings you need to secure a reputable electrical contractors chicago.  They can do the rewiring that will bring your building up to code and even more importantly keep your family safe!

3.  Insurance inspections
