In this day and age, your computer is truly one of your main appliances. From desktops to laptops, all of your computers are valuable and need to be well protected. In this article, we will address a few important, commonly overlooked points about computer wiring maintenance.

Types of Computer Wiring to Consider

  • Computer chargers
  • Phone chargers
  • Tablet chargers
  • TV connection cables
  • Wifi modem cables

How to Protect These Devices

  • Make sure the wires on all devices and device chargers are in tact, have their original wire covering and are not fraying. Frayed or exposed wires can cause electrocution.
  • Do not plug in too many devices into one outlet. Overcrowding can cause a fire hazard or a short in the circuit.
  • Plug all computers and larger devices into a surge protector instead of directly into the wall to protect your devices from damage during storms or outages.
  • If you need repairs on any of these wires, just let us know. Mister Sparky has many trained wire repair and replacement professionals who can help you out.
