Electrical Safety Tips

Never attempt electrical work yourself unless you are a qualified and licensed electrician.

Electrical work can be dangerous and should only be performed by professionals with the proper training and experience.

Schedule regular electrical inspections of your home or business by a qualified electrician.

This proactive approach helps identify potential problems before they escalate into major issues or safety hazards.

Never overload electrical outlets or extension cords.

This can lead to overheating, sparking, and potential fire hazards.

Use only the correct wattage bulbs in light fixtures.

Exceeding the recommended wattage can damage the fixture and increase the risk of fire.

Inspect electrical cords and plugs regularly for signs of damage, such as fraying, cracking, or loose connections.

Replace damaged cords immediately to prevent electrical hazards.

Install ground fault circuit interrupter (GFCI) outlets in areas prone to moisture, such as kitchens, bathrooms

GFCI outlets help prevent electrical shock in case of accidental contact with water.
