I live in a 100 or so year old apartment building. They are doing some
major renovation work in the basement. For the last few days I have
been getting lots of electric shocks when I touch various things, from
the microwave to the water faucet. The air is not particularly dry and
we don't have any wind, so I don't think the weather is the problem.
Is it possible that the construction caused this problem (I know that
they have accidentally cut many wires along the way) and, if so, what
kinds of actions could cause this problem?
I would guess by your description that you are talking about
static electric shock like walking on wool carpet, etc. I can
think of no reason why any renovation work or electrical work
would increase the incidence of static electricity. Humidity, or
rather the lack thereof, and weather have more influence on
Some clothing generates more static. Maybe you need Bounce sheets
in the dryer. Are you wearing something new or different?
Keep the whole world singing . . . .
