With the arrival of spring, many Allentown area homeowners will be looking to tackle home improvement projects With the warm spring weather comes home improvement projects around the outside of the home. So it's a good time to think about electrical safety to reduce the risk of accidental injury.

The Electrical Safety Foundation International (EFSI) recommends the following simple safety rules:
  • Ladders—even those made of wood—that come into contact with a power line can prove fatal
  • Keep all ladders at least 10 feet away from overhead power lines
  • Unplug outdoor tools and appliances when not in use
  • Inspect power tools and appliances for frayed cords, broken plugs and cracked or broken housing. Repair or replace damaged items
  • Water and electricity do not mix. Avoid damp conditions — including wet grass — when using electricity
  • Ensure that all outdoor outlets are equipped with Ground Fault Interrupters (GFIs)
  • Do not use power tools with an extension cord that exceeds 100 feet in length
  • Use extreme caution when cutting or drilling into walls where electrical wires or water pipes could be accidentally touched or penetrated
  • When using a wet-dry vacuum cleaner or a pressure washer, be sure to follow the manufacturer’s instructions to avoid electric shock
If your home needs electrical work, it's best to let the professional electricians at Maitz Home Services do the work for you. We can handle any size electrical project, from installing new outlets to complete rewiring.
