You watch Holmes on Homes, right? You gotta love Mike.
Mike Homes mantra is, “if you are going to do something, do it right the first time.”
He brilliantly suggests making a monthly maintanence checklist to help keep your house in order (you can see the list, here). Upon reviewing his list, we whole heartedly agree with each of the recommendations. We especially concur with the example for March.
March Update your fuse box. If you plan on upgrading your old electrical fuse panel with a new breaker panel, make sure you hire a licensed electrician.
YES, Mike!! Why, your expertise is exceptional! And, to all of our clients, readers, and fan base we hope that you make your own home checklist. More, we are provoked, impressed, and overawed that Mike Holmes stresses a “licensed electrician.” This is a critical yet often overlooked qualification. Surprisingly there are numerous electricians performing work under code and operating without proper certifications and licenses. There are a ton of reasons to hire a licensed electrician including fire and electrocution.
Thank you, Mike for recognizing the importance of a license in our industry and thanks for a great checklist.
