Skip Nav You may wonder how you, as a business owner or homeowner, can be proactive with being electrically safe. What actions could you possibly take that would make any difference in your environment? You might be surprised as to what you can find electrically speaking when you put your mind to it! Let’s act like detectives and see if we can find anything amiss with electrical components in our homes. Since our homes can be a large space to tackle, let’s just start with one room: The bathroom. That place we frequent repeatedly and use extensively to get ready in the morning and to prepare for bed at night. No matter the size of your bathroom, you can take an assessment of what works and what doesn’t work when it comes to electrical safety. The first thing to look for is the type of outlets in your bathroom and whether or not they are specifically geared for protecting you in wet areas. The outlet should be a GFCI, or Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter. These types of outlets are specifically engineered to prevent electrical shock around water. They automatically shut off if they come in contact with water. If your bathroom does not have GFCI protection with the outlets installed, that would be your first act of defense and protection for you and your loved ones to get the outlets that aren’t protected and replace them with GFCI outlets. If you live in the local area of Collin County, TX and need to have your bathroom outlets replaced with GFCI protection, do give us a call at 214.697.3134 and request to schedule a service call with Bill’s Quality Electric, LLC. It’s not worth the risk of keeping you in harm’s way where you spend time readying for or ending your day.
