Spring Cleaning? Don't Forget Electrical Safety

May is an ideal time for spring cleaning. And since it’s also National Electrical Safety Month, why not keep this list in mind while tidying up around your home?

  • Clean appliances that may have a buildup of food debris, oil or dust, which could be fire hazards near an electrical source.
  • Keep electrical cords and tools away from water, including wet grass.
  • Inspect cords, plugs and outlets to ensure everything is in good working condition. Wires that are warm to the touch or frayed should be replaced.
