What to do if a security company left exposed wires after removing its system?

The company lied to and manipulated me into buying their products. After a long battle, they cancelled my service and removed the system today. On top of holes in my walls, paint scrapped off the walls, sensors left on doors because they didn’t care to remove it, they left me another surprise. There are exposed wires with the copper filaments hanging out of my wall. I don’t think they have power going to them, however, I have a 5 year old boy and the wires run into a hole in the wall, so I can’t be 100% sure. The company won’t do anything about it. Is it time to get an attorney?

Yes, you should get an attorney. When a service company, contractor, or the like damages your home either deliberately or negligently (carelessly), they are responsible for the cost to repair the damage. You should be able to the security company for the cost or remedying these problems.
