HOW TO CHILDPROOF YOUR HOME AGAINST ELECTRICAL HAZARDS


Electricity keeps our homes running, but it also poses a risk to curious children. In such cases, all you have to do is to take some preventive measures to keep your little ones safe.

  • Cover outlets: They prevent children from inserting objects into electrical outlets, reducing the risk of shocks.
  • Secure cords: Keep electrical cords out of reach by using cord organisers or hiding them behind furniture. This prevents children from pulling on cords and potentially dislodging appliances.
  • Use safety gates: Safety gates can be used to block off areas with electrical hazards, such as entertainment centres or home offices.
  • Educate your children: As children get older, teach them about the dangers of electricity and how to stay safe.

It’s always suggested to run an audit for your home’s electrical system via trusted residential electrical services. If you’re residing in London, Essex, Kent, or nearby regions, you can contact our professional residential electricians at 01708 874 843.
