Arm Yourself with Electrical Safety Tips For You And Your Loved Ones

We cannot think of surviving without electricity, even more so with the advent of innumerable modern gadgets. But, ironically, if we are not careful with its use, it can lead to serious injuries and may even prove fatal.

“’Do not to touch with wet hands” or “Do not insert metal objects into electric sockets” or “Stay away from appliances especially in the kitchen and bathrooms” –  these are some of the things we’ve heard since childhood.

Here’s a list of some common knowledge stuff that can come in handy:

  • Overloading outlets can be prevented by plugging in just one–heating producing appliance at a time. Smart plugs can be used to prevent over-heating.
  • Cords can be damaged by if they are stapled or nailed to be kept in place. Never do that! Insulation can be damaged, and if wrapped tightly around objects can stretch and break.
  • Ever wondered why space is left behind appliances and avoided being kept in enclosed cabinets? For air circulation. Cleaning exhaust fans of equipment can prevent fires due to overheating.
  • “Read instructions before use”- do not ignore this message on your appliances. Keep flammable objects away from appliances, especially pressurized containers.

Beware! Life is too precious to be wasted due to carelessness. DIY or otherwise, let us be of help to you!

This company was recommended by some people on the Streetlife website. I wanted new lights installed in my kitchen, dining room and conservatory. Karen got back to me within minutes of my email and both Ian and Robin proved to be efficient, friendly and tidy workmen. I will be keeping their business card handy for future use.
