Precaution Tips - The Safe Use of Electricity in the Kitchen


Recent statistics revealed that more than half of all accidental house fires start in the kitchen and a surprising amount of them are actually caused by electrical faults. Here are some tips to help you maintain proper caution, to help keep you and your family safe around the house, and to avoid electrical fires and accidents:


Tip #1 : To avoid water coming in contact with any electrical wires make sure all of your sockets and switches are at least 1 foot away from your sink. Tip #2 : Never ever allow electric wires or cables to trail over kitchen appliances like toasters or stove tops.


Tip #3 : Do not stick in nails or try to make holes in the walls of your home. It's a potential danger since you may not know what's behind your point of entry. So get help from your nearby electrician. Tip #4 : Plug all of your appliances (even the small ones like toaster ovens) directly into the outlet – don’t use extension cords. Never use any switches or sockets when your hands are wet.


Tip #5 : It's a good idea to periodically keep an eye on the condition of the plugs and sockets. You should pay attention to any burnt or frayed wires on appliances. It's best to get the services of a professional electrician to fix such problems. Tip #6 : Unplug your small appliances (toaster, coffee machine, etc.) when you are not using them. Don’t try to repair an appliance while it is still plugged in.


Few More Tips: When one of your appliances breaks down, it is best to leave the repair to a trained professional. Before going to bed, make it a routine to check that all electrical devices not in use are properly shut off.
