Prevent a Residential House Fire

Very few of us spend time thinking about residential house fires in San Diego. It's not something you ever think will happen to you, and we hope it doesn't! Here are a few tips though to help you keep your home as safe as possible and free from the risk of fire.

Top Cause of House Fires? Faulty Wiring and Outlets

-Check the electrical cords throughout your home for signs of fraying and replace all frayed wires

-Do not pinch or cover electical cords with items such as rugs

-Be aware of the capacity of your home's electrical system! Do not overload your circuits. If in doubt, consult a licensed electrician

-Understand the difference between surge protectors and power strips. Both allow you to plug in multiple electronic devices, but only the surge protector will help protect these devices from a power spike. Use surge protectors to protect valuable electronic devices, such as computers and televisions.
