Safety tips that will keep your family safe;

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, unused wall sockets and extension-cord receptacles should have plastic safety covers.
Consider having additional circuits or outlets added by a qualified electrician so you do not have to use extension cords.
Follow the manufacturer's instructions for plugging an appliance into a receptacle outlet.
Avoid overloading outlets. Plug 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.


If you are unsure if someone has a license check them out on http://www.dpor.virginia.gov/ and check to see if they have the proper contractors license and tradesman license or call your local permits office. Working with out a license is illegal.


Playing the role of an electrician on TV is funny but playing the role of an electrician in real life when you are not can be deadly.
