Electrical Cord Safety Tips for Mundelein Residents?

6/20/2023 (Permalink)

An old, frayed, and damaged electrical cord is shown. We are leaders in fire damage restoration services in Lake County.

Our local Mundelein and North Wauconda team responds to fire damage emergencies every year. Electrical fires are one of the top causes of home fires in the United States, and in many cases, these fires may have been prevented by routinely inspecting your home for visible and hidden electrical hazards. Here are some tips from The National Fire Protection Association to prevent electrical fires in your home:

  • Check electrical cords to make sure the wires are not damaged, cracked, or loose. If the cords need to be repaired, take the item to a professional repair shop, hire an electrician, or replace it with a new item.
  • Make sure cords are not running across doorways or under carpets. If they are, have a qualified electrician install more outlets.
  • Keep children away from electric cords and outlets. Cords placed in the mouth can cause a burn and objects placed in a receptacle can cause a shock, burns, or electrocution.
  • Make sure that all receptacle outlets and switches have faceplates.
  • Never put more than one plug in each receptacle. An outlet may have one or more receptacles - one to receive each plug.
