Is your home older than 1980? It may have old cables such as VIR (Vulcanised Indian Rubber), TRS (Tough Rubber Sheath) which are rubber cables that are often at the end of their service life. As they deteriorate the insulation can start crumbling which can short circuit and lead to a fire.
Ideally all VIR and TRS cables should be replaced as soon as possible with modern TPS cable. If you haven't yet had your wiring checked key signs that your cables may be due for replacement include: flickering lights or power points that don't keep the plug in very well.
If you aren't sure it's always best to have the cables checked by an electrician, we can let you know the type, age and condition of the cables and advise whether an upgrade is recommended.
