Ensuring electrical safety of your house and being aware about it are important to prevent accidents and hazardous situations. By considering the following tips, you can create a safe environment to live in. Here they are:
- Examine your electrical installations for houses older than 10 years. In case of any mishap, check the installations before changing or repairing them.
- Avoid using connections in a multi-plug. This tends to overdraw the contact increasing the chances of short circuit. It may also lead to damage of your device.
- Check with an electrician in case you feel small discharges while you connect or disconnect your devices. This can be a potential case of short circuit and fire if not addressed quickly.
- Avoid using devices in areas where there is high humidity, such as bathrooms, kitchens or areas around sinks or water taps.
