According to the Electrical Safety Foundation International, home electrical problems are the cause of some 53,600 fires in the United States resulting in 500 deaths, 1400 injuries, and 1.4 billion in property damage. Each day, hundreds of homes in the US will catch fire due to faulty electrical circuitry. Older homes pose an even greater risk! According to the US census bureau, half the homes in the United States were built before 1973.

 

IT IS FACT that electrical wiring circuits should be inspected, and checked for any loose connections which may be present, within your Electrical Circuitry.

Electrical wiring connections "expand and contract" with Temperature change, which over years can cause circuit connections to work loose, which can be one of the major sources for electrical malfunctions.

Call BK Mechanical Services Inc. today to schedule one of our State Licensed Electricans to perform your Inspection, and check your electrical wiring circuit box for loose connections, burned wiring, or other items that can contribute to DANGEROUS WIRING CONDITIONS that may possibly exist at your home or business.

Electrical Safety
Electric power gives us light and warmth, but without safety precautions, it can also be dangerous. Follow these simple precautions to help insure you and your family's safety:
 
Replace or repair loose or frayed cords on all electrical devices.
Avoid running extension cords across doorways or under carpets.
In homes with small children, electrical outlets should have plastic safety covers.
Follow the manufacturer's instructions for plugging an appliance into a receptacle outlet.
Avoid overloading outlets. Consider plugging only one high-wattage appliance into each receptacle outlet at a time.
If outlets or switches feel warm, shut off the circuit and have them checked by an electrician.
When possible, avoid the use of "cube taps" and other devices that allow the connection of multiple appliances into a single receptacle.
Place lamps on level surfaces, away from things that can burn and use bulbs that match the lamp's recommended wattage.

Never touch anything electrical when you have wet hands.
Don’t use electrical appliances such as hair dryers or radios in a wet place or near water.
If power is lost during a storm, turn off or unplug electrical appliances so that there’s not a power surge when the electricity comes back on.
If there’s flooding, watch out for water around electrical items, and never use appliances if they’re wet.
Never play with kites or toy planes near overhead power lines.
If a toy happens to get caught in a power line, don’t attempt to remove it yourself.
Never prune trees that are near power lines yourself.
