In our last post, we wrote about the importance of making the upgrade from old two-prong outlets in (ungrounded outlets) to three-prong outlets in your home. We also offered suggestions about the best types of outlets to have installed to improve safety.
Today, we’re looking at a specific reason for improving the outlets in your house—to make your house safer for young children. Standard open outlets can present serious hazards to children who may attempt to place objects or their fingers into the slots, and they can also create fire dangers. Most outlets are at ground level, making them easy for children to access. If you have infants and toddlers in your home, or you have a child on the way, we recommend you work with electricians in Livingston, NJ to have the safest types of outlets installed.
