Be Safe When Charging Electronic Devices

5/25/2021 (Permalink)

Technology is such an important part of our lives today. We often make it a priority to keep them as close to us as possible, and to ensure that they are charged and ready to use for the day. Because of our need to stay connected, we often forget about the potential dangers of keeping them so close to us, especially at night when we typically plug them in to charge.

Things to keep in mind when charging you phone or tablet: 

  1. Electronic devices should not be charged on flammable surfaces. So, do not tuck your phone under your pillow, on your bed, or on your couch while it is charging. 
  2. Use the charger and cord that is specific to your device. 
  3. Ensure that the charging cord does not have any exposed wires and is working properly. 
  4. If possible, charge your device during the day and turn it off at night. 

Keep yourself and loved ones safe by following these fire-safe phone charging practices! 

Accidents do happen, so if you need assistance after a fire make sure to contact SERVPRO of Morton Grove/East Niles today!
