Are you guilty of these dangerous homeowner mistakes?



For many of us, our home is the most comfortable place to be. We can relax and unwind from a long day and enjoy ourselves however we like. But sometimes we get a little too comfortable and neglect important issues that should be addressed right away. A little negligence here and a few bad habits there can end up costing you or putting your safety at risk. Don't let that happen; avoid these homeowner mistakes:


Ignoring a Rodent Problem

The moment you suspect unwanted guests are living on your property, it's time to call a professional exterminator. Mice and other rodents are notorious for chewing the protective sheathing off electrical wires, leaving the underlying heated metal exposed. Unprotected electrical wiring can lead to short circuiting and sparks. By ignoring the problem, you run the risk of a potential house fire.


Assuming All Repairs Are DIY

You might think you're saving money by tackling your home repairs, but you could be putting yourself in danger or creating a bigger problem. There's a reason some of these fields require extensive training and licensing. In fact, more than a dozen jobs are flat out illegal to complete on your own. Stay safe and leave the risky projects like HVAC and electrical work to the professionals.


Overloading Power Strips and Outlets

As we continue to use electronic devices to simplify our lives, we have a greater need for power. But when we overload outlets and power strips with these high-voltage devices, we create hazardous situations. You can help prevent electrical fires by avoiding dangerous overcrowding and choosing strips that include a circuit breaker and an Underwriters Laboratories (UL) seal.
