Electrical Safety Inspections
People use electricity throughout their homes every single day. We use electricity from the moment our alarm clock wakes us up in the morning to when we plug our smartphones into our chargers before we go to sleep at night. It runs silently behind the scenes through the power cables running throughout our homes, and allows us to maintain a comfortable and convenient standard of living. When everything is running smoothly, electricity can be seen as a minor miracle! Unfortunately, there are some times when electricity can become a problem, and even a hazard. According to the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), electrical issues are the number one cause of household fires that cause significant property damage. Furthermore, small appliances that are connected it inadequate wires in a home are a leading cause of accidental electrocutions. Although electricity can be a hazard if proper safety measures are not maintained, these major issues can easily be avoided with an inspection by a certified electrician from Highmark Electrical.
