I have a 1950's home with wood paneling all throughout the basement. It also has a room in which I'm looking to take out 2 non-load bearing walls to open up the basement. I'm going to be replacing all the wood paneling with sheet rock and I'm going to be installing high hats in the ceilings. One of the walls that I'm removing has an outlet which is going to be useless since I'm getting rid of the wall and I was curious as to what I do with the wires once I remove the outlet itself. Should I just gorilla tape around the ends and safely tuck them away into the wall? Is that good and safe enough??
I've gutted a spare room in the past which I turned into a nursery when I had my twins a year and a half ago, but I didn't really have to mess with anything electrical. I feel completely comfortable doing so, I just never had to remove anything.
Thanks for any kind of help or advice
