Water and electricity can be a lethal pair, especially in the bathroom. The close proximity of the sink and tub to electrical outlets creates the opportunity for shock, electrocution or fire. Ensuring electrical safety and safeguards in the bathroom is essential to protect yourself and your family.
If you feel that your bathroom is unsafe you must take every precaution, including electrical repair services if necessary, to correct your issues. Read on for electrical safety tips and tricks for the bathrooms in your home.
Safety in your bathroom, especially regarding electrical work, is a primary concern for every homeowner.
Water is a great conductor of electricity. Wet hands and bodies, as well as wet floors and surfaces, create an environment where electricity can easily flow from where it belongs (in your wires and circuits) to where it does not belong (your skin and body). It also creates conditions that can cause a fire to start.
Electrical safety in the bathroom is focused on keeping water and electricity separate from each other. Here are some things to look for as you check to be sure your bathroom is safe:
As you evaluate your bathroom, you may find you need the services of a professional electrician to make the necessary adjustments and repairs to keep your bathroom safe. You will certainly want to hire a qualified tradesman who knows and adheres to all safety measures and electrical code requirements.
It is unwise to attempt to make electrical repairs yourself. Improper installation of fixtures, outlets or GFCIs can be more dangerous than fixtures that are in the wrong location. When your projects involve electrical work, wise homeowners choose a reliable electrician to make repairs that will keep their families safe and increase the value of their homes.
