When Hurricane Sandy hit in 2012, the storm left dozens dead, thousands homeless and millions without power. It’s estimated that Sandy caused about $20 billion in property damage and $10 to $30 billion more in lost business, making it one of the costliest natural disasters on record in the United States. Lives were drastically affected and even today, in 2015, there is still much work to be done to restore the shore.

If a home is affected by fire, there are many factors that must be taken into consideration when evaluating safety of the electrical system in the home. Have the wires been compromised in any way? Has melting or warping occurred behind the walls or in the attic or crawl space? Has water damage occurred as a result of the fire being extinguished? Has the connection to the outside source of power been compromised? If any one of these conditions exist and is not immediately repaired the risk of additional damage and harm is great.
