Do you ever think twice about your outlets?

How often do you give your outlets a second glance? If you’re like most people, probably not very often. However, checking on your outlets every once in a while is crucial, and could save you from a fire starting in your home. According to www.preferredlinkins.com, “Just like a damaged cord can cause some serious damage, so can an outlet that has become loose overtime or that was installed or replaced incorrectly. Usually fires within an outlet are caused by missed connections resulting from contacts that are worn out.” 

Next time you plug something into your outlets, take a closer look. If you see a spark, or if the outlet itself feels loose, get it fixed right away. Just like it’s important to check on other appliances in your home, do yourself a favor and start inspecting your outlets regularly! Taking this extra precaution could save you from experiencing a fire!
