    Before a devastating result electric machines give hint about their internal breakage or damage by several ways. Check out every machines of your house which need to be activated through electric connection. If you found any flickering lights, excessive heat coming from switches or any kind of spark from outlet, then inform an electrician as soon as possible.

  • Extension cords:
    We often use extension cords as they seem to be useful to us for connecting one machine with other. These extension cords merge the gap between two electrical goods and help to light the desired machine. But, it can also lead you towards an accident. These cords sometimes get heated too much and therefore lit fire in a moment. If you use as a temporary bridge between two machines, then it will be alright. But, it is really dangerous for daily use.
  • Overburden on outlets:
    Sometimes people put overload in outlets which is another reason of electrical faults. Try to put single plugs in a socket so that outlets remain free from overburden.
