In Marietta, an electrical fire in your home or business can undoubtedly damage your electrical system.
Many circumstances can lead to an electrical fire. The most common reasons for electrical fire include improperly installed electrical wiring, malfunctioning power outlets, overloaded circuits, and extension cord misuse. When flames flare up inside a home or business, most people will instinctually want to dowse the fire with water. Water is what not to put on an electrical fire. In fact, trying to extinguish an electrical fire with water or foam will not work. Moreover, doing such will make the situation worse.
This point bears repeating if you experience an electrical fire, remember, do not use water to extinguish it. Because water is a conductor of electricity, throwing water on an electrical fire is likely to send an incredible electrical shock to you when the power is on. This kind of shock can prove to be deadly. Always call 911 to report a home or business fire. If you know the fire is electrical, let firefighters know.
There are steps you can take to reduce your risk of having an electrical fire.
First, it is a good idea to inspect all electronic devices and equipment regularly visually. Any electronics with exposed, damaged, or frayed wiring should not be in use until repairs can be made by a qualified professional. If repairing the item is not possible, replacement is going to be the safest option. Also, be sure to store flammable materials safely at least three feet from electrical components and connections. Use power strips and electrical cords correctly to avoid overloading.
Electrical upgrades are sure to reduce the risk of an electrical fire. Please have your electrical system checked if you notice flickering lights, burning smells, electrical sparks, or any outlets or light switches warm to the touch. Frequently tripped breakers indicate electrical problems that a panel upgrade can solve. Besides, make sure your smoke alarms work correctly and install new batteries every six months in them.
