To Ensure a Hazard Free Home, here’s what you need to keep in mind:

#1 EVERYDAY APPLIANCE HAZARD PREVENTION

  • Make sure your electrical appliances are kept dry and the sockets that they are plugged into are turned off after every use. 
  • Be careful with electrical cords– if you see a cord that is creating current when you plug it in or is bitter or broken, you must get it replaced immediately. 
  • Be sure to have the right fixtures for your lamps and bulbs, do not force any bulb into a fixture that’s too small. 
  • Leave Electrical Repair to the Experts. 
  • Don’t ignore short circuits, especially if they start to seem persistent. Get your home’s electrical wiring checked immediately, by opting for our Electrical Services in Abu Dhabi.
Fire Hazard Prevention

#2 FIRE HAZARD PREVENTION

  • Most home fires are caused by faulty or outdated electrical outlets, which can be prevented by regularly getting an Expert to check on your wiring and outlets.
  • Installing a bulb that has a voltage too high for your lamp can be another reason for a possible fire. Make sure you purchase a bulb with the right voltage.
  • Misuse of extension cords in a way where too many appliances are plugged into it or when the wire gets pulled from one end can be quite hazardous and should be prevented. 
  • Outdated wiring, especially of homes that are over 20 years old can be a common cause of fire outbreaks in homes. Make sure to replace your wiring if you think it’s too old. Book Electrical Services in Abu Dhabi with us for the most efficient solutions!

  • Check for tamper resistant outlets to ensure extra safety for your and your loved ones at home.

EXTRA CARE FOR PARENTS AND PET OWNERS:
