Household Electrical Safety

Here are a few tips to avoid electrical danger from happening within your home:

  • Prevent the risk of electrical shock by keeping all electrical connections dry and away from water.
  • Bind up all extra wires with zip ties and secure loose wires so no one is at risk of tripping.
  • Do not plug too many extension cords in to on outlet, instead use a certified power bar.
  • Know the location of your electrical panel & know how to use your breaker.
  • Have a fire extinguisher close bye in case of an electrical fire.
  • Make sure to pull the plug, not the cord, when disconnecting an electrical device.
  • Unplug any electrical device when it is not in use.
  • Never replace a fuse with a metal object.
  • Always contact a certified electrician to do any wiring in your home.
  • Use light bulbs that are the correct wattage requirements for the lighting fixture.
  • Never force a three prong plug into a two prong only outlet.
  • Replace any light that has been consistently flickering.
