Thanksgiving Safety Tips

As Halloween starts to wind down, it’s time to start thinking about the next holiday – Thanksgiving! Did you know that Thanksgiving is one of the leading days of the year for home fires? By being mindful and paying attention to details, you can keep your family safe. The specialists at Mister Sparky have put together a handful of electrical safety tips for your turkey day:

  • Invest in New Smoke Detectors – When was the last time you checked your smoke detectors? Whether you have older detectors or are just looking for something new, the team at our business can provide you with brand new smoke detectors that are wired into your electrical system.
  • Never Fight Electrical Fires with Water – If an electrical fire happens in your home, it is crucial that you do not throw water on it. Water conducts electricity. If you throw it on the fire, you can get shocked. Make sure you have a fire extinguisher on hand for these situations.
  • Never Overload Your Outlets – It does not matter if it is Thanksgiving or any other holiday, you need to make sure you never overload your outlets. If you do not have enough outlets for your kitchen, you can have an electrician in Orange Park, FL, from our business provide you with new outlet installation services.

The team at Mister Sparky is there for you every day of the year. You can call us 24/7 at (904) 222-2121 to speak with a specialist from our business.
