Here are PNP Electrical’s top  tips for keeping your electricals safe:

Electricals Safe This Christmas

  1. Choose the right lighting

Festive lights are a big part of Christmas but this isn’t to say that they are completely safe. If you plan on putting up lights outside, Electricians Liverpool recommended that you choose ‘outdoor safe’ lights as these will help prevent electric shocks and fire hazards.

  1. Make sure that lights aren’t left on

Before leaving the house, always make sure that you turn off your Christmas lights. If there’s nobody at home to enjoy them, what’s the point in leaving them lit? Switching lights off and unplugging them at the wall prevents the risk of fire damage.

1 in every 12 people admits to leaving their Christmas lights turned on overnight and in doing so they run the risk of overheating sockets and house fires. Lights are often wrapped around the branches of Christmas trees and covered in tinsel which are both highly flammable materials.

  1. Avoid leaving hair straighteners or curlers turned on

Whether you’re leaving the house in a rush to hit the festive sales or  a Christmas party , remember to unplug your electrical styling appliances and keep them on a heatproof mat until they are cool enough to put away.

Did you know that 650,000 house fires are caused each year in the UK as a result of hair styling appliances being left on?

  1. Don’t forget about the Christmas dinner…

This is  something that many of us are guilty of doing when we’re busy enjoying  the festivities. Electricians Liverpool don’t advise leaving food to cook unattended – it is a recipe for disaster.

  1. Be mindful of what you’re buying

We all know just how expensive Christmas can be, so when we spot a bargain, it can be very tempting. The downfall with this is that sometimes gifts that are cheaper  are more likely to be counterfeit or unsafe to use. Try and avoid products that aren’t compliant with UK Safety Standards.
