Spring Electrical Safety

Recently Universal Home Experts shared an important home safety message, ‘Safety Inspection Should Precede Heat.’ We would like to provide more information on that topic.

Electrical safety is extremely important for various reasons, which is why it is so vital that you and your loved ones understand what to be aware of so that injury, fire and even death are avoided. Since the National Electrical Safety Month is just around the corner in May, now is the perfect time to review all safety measures with your family.

Most electrocutions and fires stem from the following hazards:

·         Electrical systems 20 years and older

·         Wiring hazards

·         Surge suppressor, power strip and extension cord misuse

·         Contact with power lines and large electrical appliances
