Power Strips and Surges with SERVPRO of McAllen

1/6/2022 (Permalink)

Surge protectors are great because they provide several outlets and that can come in very handy. However, depending on what you’re plugging in, not every outlet should be used. Most things we tend to plug in are like a phone, computer, or gaming console, which don’t use much power. Items found in your kitchen, on the contrary, such as a toaster, crockpot, or skillet would draw more power and could potentially cause electrical issues.

If the power strip or surge protectors begin to feel hot, it is a sign that you have too many things plugged in and should start unplugging to play it safe.

Watch for burn marks or melted plastic that would also indicate that there are to many things plugged in.

Before plugging in your next electronic device, look at what’s going on with your power strip or surge protector.
