Of course, if you see a possible electrical hazard in your own home or place of business, you will likely have it taken care of, but what about if you are renting a home or working in an office space owned by someone else and see something you think might be a fire hazard?

Customer “Very Pleased” with the Work Done by Electrician Express in Genesee County

electrician-express-gand-blancRecently, one of our residential customers, Michael P., left us a review on Google that we wanted to share with you. Michael needed some electrical work done on his Genesee County home over the weekend and gave us a call. One of our electricians, John, went to Michael’s house to complete the electrical work, and in Michael’s words, he was “very pleased.”

We know that some of our customers, like Michael, aren’t able to be home during weekdays because of work schedules, so we offer evening and weekend appointments for those customers.

Protecting You and Your Home From Electrical Fires

October 4-10, 2015 is National Fire Prevention Week, a national observance sponsored by the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) to commemorate the anniversary of the Great Chicago Fire of 1871. During the week, many schools and communities will offer educational programs and messages on fire prevention, centered around this year’s theme: “Hear the Beep Where You Sleep. Every Bedroom Needs a Working Smoke Alarm!”

According to the NFPA, in cases where home fires were large enough to set off a smoke alarm, battery powered alarms, which are found in many homes, only operated 79% of the time, while hardwired smoke alarms operated 93% of the time. A properly installed hardwired smoke alarm can literally save your life! Continue reading “Protecting You and Your Home From Electrical Fires” »
