Top tips 

There are particular danger signs to look out for on all electrical items you have around your home.
  • If you think something needs fixing or changing, do it straight away.
  • Look out for fuses that blow, circuit-breakers that trip for no obvious reason and flickering lights to prevent appliances triggering a fire.
  • Switch off appliances when you go to bed or when you go out unless they are designed to be left on, like freezers.
  • Electrical appliances, especially ones that run at high speeds and contain motors, like washing machines, should be serviced once a year by a qualified electrician.
If you think something needs fixing or changing, do it straight away.
