Safety Essentials Your Property Needs 

inner-banner-image

Have you ever considered how prepared your property is for unexpected emergencies? A lack of preparedness can turn small mishaps into major disasters, from sudden power surges to unforeseen accidents. At Mr. Electric, we offer reliable services for local clients. Whether you need an electrical safety inspection or emergency repair, our licensed electricians want to help you protect your space. Keep reading to learn about the essential safety tools every property should have.

Combat Flames with a Fire Extinguisher

Imagine you're cooking dinner, and suddenly, a small fire flares up. Having a fire extinguisher around can make all the difference. There are different types: water extinguishers work best for paper and wood fires, foam for liquids, CO2 for electrical fires, and powder for mixed fires. Remember the PASS technique:

  • Pull the pin.
  • Aim toward the base of the fire.
  • Squeeze the handle.
  • Sweep side to side.

Backup Generators for an Uninterrupted Power Supply

Power outages are unpredictable, and a backup generator ensures that your life doesn't come to a standstill when they occur. Portable generators are excellent for short-term use, while standby generators automatically kick in for longer outages. When choosing a generator, consider the fuel type - gasoline, diesel, natural gas, or even solar. Also, think about the appliances you need to run. A fridge requires less power than the entire house.

Shielding Your Home from Surges

An electrical surge can strike out of nowhere, potentially damaging appliances and your home's wiring. Surge protectors act as a shield, diverting excess voltage away from your devices. They're not all created equal, though. Some offer basic protection for small electronics, while others are designed to safeguard your entire home. Installing a surge protector is a simple step that can save you from the headache of replacing fried appliances and keeping your home safe.

Securing Your Sanctuary with an Advanced Home Security System

Today's home smart security systems provide security and convenience, letting you check in on your home while you're away, ensuring everything is safe and sound. With new technology advancements, you can monitor your home remotely using HD security cameras, control entry with smart locks, and even get alerts on your phone.

Take Care of Minor Medical Issues with a Quality First Aid Kit

A well-stocked first aid kit is your first response in handling minor accidents. Essential items include various-sized bandages, antiseptics for cleaning wounds, pain relievers, and allergy medications. It's also wise to customize your kit based on your family's specific needs. Regularly check and replenish your kit because, in an emergency, a high-quality first aid kit can be a lifesaver.

Creating the Ultimate Disaster Kit

Disaster preparedness means having a kit ready for the worst-case scenario. Your kit should include basic supplies like water, non-perishable food, flashlights, and batteries. Don't forget personal documents, like IDs and insurance papers. Customize your kit based on potential local disasters, like extra water for drought-prone areas or thermal blankets for colder regions. Being prepared means thinking ahead and ensuring you have what you need to weather any storm.

I needed some rewiring of a thermostat for a heated flooring wall unit that wasn't functioning properly due to complexities with the existing home wiring. Bill from Mr. Electric was able to respond same with a great price and did the work in the spot. Just what you look for when you find a contractor.
