    Electronics can be a fire hazard if not maintained or used correctly. In fact, electrical malfunctions is a top cause of home fires. Here are a few tips on electrical safety to prevent home fires.

  • Replace cracked and damaged electrical cords.
  • Be sure to check your electrical cords regularly, and make sure it does not run across doorways or under carpets that can lead to damage.
  • Limit the number of plugs you have in an electrical outlet or power strip. Overloading an electrical outlet may not only trip a breaker, it could also start a fire.
  • Use extension cords for temporary wiring only. Consider having additional circuits added by a qualified electrician.
  • Keep light fixtures, lamps and light bulbs away from anything that can catch fire and burn, such as lamp shades, bedding, curtains, and clothing.
  • Call a qualified electrician if you have recurring problems such as blowing fuses or a circuit breaker tripping, discolored or warm wall outlets or flickering lights.
