Electrical fittings within your home or office should be monitored and maintained exactly the same way that you would maintain your vehicle.
It is important to understand that once your electrical equipment have been fitted and installed they will inevitably undergo wear and tear. This wear and tear can become hazardous if it not monitored closely.
Short circuits happen when certain parts of your electricals have been overused, mistreated and neglected. Short circuits are a major cause for household fires.
The three biggest points of interest for maintenance will be your plugs, light switches and distribution boards. Keeping a close eye on these things can significantly reduce the risk of an electrical fire.
It is important to know how to identify when something needs repairing or maintenance and the following tips can help you:
- If you notice a discoloration around the sockets of the plug
- If the socket no longer holds the plug tightly
- If the outlet board is cracked or broken
- If you hear a crackling sound when switching your light on
- If the light switch has been pushed into the wall
- Crackling sounds
- Appliances have stopped working
- Flickering lights
- Burning odours(call us immediately)
