Safety Tips According to Fall River’s Top Residential Electricians

1. Check Cords Regularly

residential electriciansThough you likely have many cords running throughout the house, you should inspect them all regularly. Take note of cracks in the outer materials, frays, or kinks. If you find any of these signs, the cord should be replaced. This tip is especially important for power tools, extensions, and holiday lights.

2. Don’t Make Home Modifications

If your appliance requires repairs, you should never try to complete them yourself. Attempting to do so could lead to a damaged unit or even personal injury. Also, avoid modifying cords to fit into a specific outlet. Never cut off the third prong or try to file down a wider prong, as this will affect the cords ability to function safely and could lead to a fire.

3. Stop the Flickering

If you have a flickering light, you should replace its switch as soon as possible or avoid using it until you can. Fixtures that have this problem—as well as those that are hot to the touch—are fire risks and should be repaired promptly.
