Any electrical installation will eventually deteriorate and develop some general wear and tear, and it can become dangerous if it is not corrected.
There are two types of rewires that can be done; full and part rewires. Both tasks are completed for different reasons and both can be beneficial in different circumstances.

Full electrical rewires
Full rewires are when every part of the electrics, so all the wires, circuits, cables and accessories, are all replaced.
You can feel comforted knowing that all wiring in your home is completely new and safe. You can even make everything neater when having a full rewire, whereby you can have any wires on show hidden behind the walls, and you could even ask the electrician to add any extra socket outlets so that you can get rid of the extension leads that clutter up the house.
A recent full rewire will also give your property extra value if you decide to move as it just brings all the electrics up to scratch, and any new buyer is reassured that the property they want to buy is completely safe.
Part electrical rewires
A part rewire, however, is where you only have a section of the installation replaced.
This could be done due to a fault being found in a particular place in the home, if one part of the house has been damaged by flood or you are having an extension and need to have new wiring installed and need to get some of the house rewired so that everything works together.
Sometimes a partial rewire is undertaken when a full rewire is unnecessary. This could be because only parts of the wiring is unsafe and the rest is perfectly fine, in this case it would be an unnecessary cost to pay for a complete rewire.
