Our gift to you this Festive Season is 24/7 Electrical Emergency Service Should Anything Happen
Decorations that require electricity are quite common during the festive season. Strings of lights both indoors and out are often displayed in celebration of the festive season each year. Although most decorations are manufactured to withstand the holiday season, improper and unsafe usage of these energy-thirsty decorations can pose the risk of electrical problems and can increase your chances of experiencing overloads, blown fuses and even electrical fire.
To ensure you stay safe throughout the Festive Season, avoid four of the most common holiday electrical hazards below:
- OVERLOADED ELECTRICAL CIRCUITS: Overloading your circuits with plugs and extension cords can result in overheating and an eventual fire. Avoid overloading electrical circuits, and use a surge protector to prevent voltage spikes.
- DAMAGED EXTENSION CORDS: Using damaged extension cords to connect your festive lighting is a severe fire risk. Replace damaged extension cords immediately, and remember not to run them through doorways or under carpets. Outside, never run extension cords across driveways or walkways. Remember to also keep all connections out of puddles and above-ground.
- OVERUSED HOLIDAY LIGHTING: Most holiday decorations aren’t designed for use throughout the entire year. Take your lights and decorations down once the holidays are over to avoid safety risks. Never let bulbs touch cloth, paper, wiring or any other material not part of the light strand.
- UNAPPROVED FESTIVE LIGHTING: Use holiday decorations that have been approved for safety by national laboratories and inspect the physical condition of all electrical decorations before use.
