Home should be the safest place

There are actions we take for granted in our homes and do almost daily. Even though we appreciate how electricity makes our lives easier we should be aware of the safety concerns around electrical wiring in our homes.

• Turning on the lights.
• Setting an automatic coffeemaker.
• Charging your mobile phones.

Unfortunately, too many people are critically injured and electrocuted as a result of electrical fires and accidents in their own homes each year.

Many of these disasters can be prevented. Learning the causes of home electrical fires and following safety guidelines are good steps toward prevention.

Worst Case Scenarios

While we don’t like fear-mongering, it’s important for homeowners to be aware of the most common causes of electrical fires in the home:

• Overloaded electrical circuits
• Improper use of extension cords
• Outdated or non-functioning smoke alarms
• Inadequate circuit breakers and fuses
• Space heaters

It is critical that all electrical work in your home is done by a qualified electrician. Wilcox Electric is a Pepco-approved electrical contractor, specializing in residential and light commercial work in the DC area.

This includes electrical service work, such as the repair or replacement of existing electrical systems, lighting, and devices and the installation of new electrical systems for additions.

"David and Daniel were amazing! They were on time, professional, knowledgeable, and quick. Out of the 5+ companies I reached out to, this was the only one to send me a quote and actually show up to visit the property. They also were very flexible, working around my schedule, and they came in cheaper than estimated."
