Scurich Insurance Services, CA, electrical plugsTake care of your plugs.  Charging our phones, iPads and laptops.  Enjoying the big game on your flat screen television and a countless array of appliances for your parties. Electrical fires are bound to happen.  It is important that you should have your wiring inspected, especially if you live in a home that is over 10 years old.  Here are some other safety tips to help prevent electrical fires:
  • Get new electrical cords.  Throw out all the frayed, loose, or damaged cords.  Replacing these cords is a fairly inexpensive investment to protect your home from an electrical fire.
  • Make sure you run extensions cords in areas that are visible.  Do not run extension cords under carpets or across doorways where they can become a serious hazard.
  • Child proof your plugs.
  • Any electrical work should be done by a qualified, licensed electrician that has a good standing.
  • Add more circuits our outlets by a qualified, licensed electrician so you don’t need extension cords.
  • Use Instructions.  When plugging in an appliance in an outlet, follow the directions of the manufacturer.
  • Unplug appliances when not in use.  Having too many appliances in one outlet can overload the outlet.
  • Call your qualified electrician when you start noticing frequent problems with flickering lights, blowing fuses or if outlets and switches feel warm.
  • Make sure all lamps are away from flammable objects and are leveled.  Follow the appropriate wattage for each lamp.
  • You need to have ground fault circuit interrupters (GFCIs) in the kitchen, bathrooms, laundry room, basement and all outdoor areas.
  • You need to have arc-fault circuit interrupters (AFCIs) should be installed to protect your electrical outlets.
