  • Your average home outlet has 120 volts of electricity running through it. When the human body comes into contact with this amount of electrical energy, the resulting electrocution can cause some serious health concerns. Seven children per day suffer electrocution from sticking a finger or object into an outlet. Electrocution can cause muscle spasms, burns, nervous system issues, and other long-term health effects.

  • The most common outlet-related injury is an electrical burn. About 95% of injuries from outlets are burns. Burns can vary from minor to extremely serious. When electricity comes into contact with skin, it is the equivalent of getting burnt by 4,000°F. That is hot enough to instantly damage tissue and cause long-term scarring.

  • In the most severe cases, electrocution can lead to serious and fatal injuries. When electricity passes through the head or chest, it can cause cardiac arrest or damage vital areas of the brain. That is why Mr. Electric of Grand Prairie makes childproofing outlets one of our top priorities.

How Do Outlet-Related Injuries Happen?

Our kids are naturally curious, poking and prodding everything they can find. Most of the time, this is a good attribute that helps them learn and develop. The drawback is that it can get them into situations they don’t realize are dangerous. No matter how closely you watch your children, it only takes a second for them to stick their finger (or something else) into an exposed outlet. In fact, approximately 70% of outlet injuries occur when an adult is present, and 30% of injuries involve the insertion of a foreign object into the outlet. Some things children commonly stick in outlets include:

  • Tools
  • Keys
  • Hairpins
  • Jewelry
  • Paperclips
  • Belt buckles
  • Nail files
  • Metal toys
  • As a parent, you have already spent a lot of time childproofing everything in your home. This includes doing things like making sure cabinets are locked and sharp corners are protected. Your outlets are part of that crucial safety project. Mr. Electric of Grand Prairie offers childproof outlets that offer a much higher level of protection than the standard plastic plugs you might find at your local big box store. Our safety outlets have a spring-loaded cover that automatically snaps shut whenever the outlet is not in use. This means that you never need to worry about forgetting to replace a cover again.
