A Better Mouse-trap | Home Inspector Bellevue Seattle Everett

During Home Inspections, I find varying levels of property condition and safety.

I find some homes with every possible outlet covered with outlet protectors while other homes will have the outlets exposed with no cover-plate.  Many of the missing electrical plate-covers are in childrens bedrooms.

Here is a good reason why missing electrical plate covers should be called out in a Home Inspection report. The deceased mouse shows the electrical shock hazard from an electrical outlet with no plate-cover.

Although a simple and inexpensive fix, the outlet with no cover-plate is an electrical shock hazard.

Yikes. Kinda sends the message doesn't it. Just as easy for a child or grandchild to have put something in there.
