Don’t you think the best place to go to keep your Dallas home safe is to a Dallas Electrician? We do! You need someone who knows what they are doing to get into your home a access the entire electrical system from top to bottom to make sure you and your family are safe. You need to make sure everything is up to your city code. Did you know that the codes change every couple years? That doesn’t mean you have to continuously make changes to your home, but it does mean that you should regularly check your home to make sure that you have all the new safety features in your home.

The biggest component to your home is the electrical system. Why would you risk it failing just because nothing is going wrong at the moment? You need to call Arrow Electric to have them come do a safety evaluation for you. What are some other things you can do to keep your home safe without an electrician involved? Let me tell you just a few simple steps you can take. Make sure you NEVER overload a circuit. Outlets are only designed to handle so much. By plugging in things that require too much electricity you are putting yourself at risk for explosion or fire. If you have to have more things plugged in in an area use a power strip. Do not use a regular old extension cord. These are dangerous. If you have extension cords running through a walk area of your home you could trip and rip it out of a wall and cause damage to the outlet and the cord making it less and less safe every time you use it.

I am also going to throw in a few tips that everyone should know, but need to be repeated. Keep anything electrical away from water! Even the smallest amount is a recipe for disaster. If something spills next to something plugged into an outlet quickly clean up the spill and make sure no liquid got on the actual cord or outlet. Also, those with young children… Please make sure you put the tamper resistant caps into outlets that are not being used. Even a small shock could be enough to really hurt a child.
