Are You Suffering From An Electrical Fire Loss?

All over the United States, electrical fires are one of the most common causes of house fires. Electrical fires are not exclusive to older buildings or home appliances. In fact, 50% of electrical fires start with electrical distribution and lighting equipment. This is due to a compromised wire insulation, an overloaded conduit, or the equipment becoming hot and being close to combustible material. With the colder weather approaching, here are a few ways to protect yourself and home from an Electrical Fire.

Some Of Many Ways To Protect You And Your Home From An Electrical Fire:

  • Have your home and/or business thoroughly inspected by a qualified electrician to ensure that electrical work is up to code
  • Install smoke detectors on every level of your home and/or business.
  • Have an up to code fire extinguisher
  • Schedule an inspection for any fire extinguisher and/or smoke detectors every month
  • Establish an emergency escape plan
  • Do not overload electrical outlets, surge protectors or extension cords
  • Use lightbulbs that meet the recommended power of light fixture
  • Inspect your appliances, extension cords, and plug-ins often to make sure they have not become compromised
  • Look and listen for apparent signs of problems; sizzling or buzzing, flickering lights, frequently tripped breakers
