Quick Checks Can Help Save Your Life

Millions of people in the United Kingdom subject themselves and their families to potentially fatal electrical mishaps in the home by making simple mistakes due to a lack of understanding about the dangers of electricity.

T&R Sutton Electrical Services - Quick Checks

It is important to make sure that the electrical installation in your property is well maintained, and we recommend that you use a registered electrician to check that it is safe.

However, there are a number of simple, visual checks that you can carry out yourself:

· Check that you have RCD protection in your fusebox

· Make sure that your plug sockets are not overloaded

· Ensure that plugs and sockets are not damaged

· Check that visible cables and leads are in good condition

· Check that your light fittings are not visibly damaged and that downlighters are in good working condition

· Check that you are not storing combustible materials around your fusebox, electricity meter or electrical intake

· Don’t use the top of the microwave for extra storage

· Never trail cables under carpets or rugs

· Never take mains-powered electrical items into the bathroom

· Always switch off your electrical items when they are not in use
