How To Care for Electrical Cords

Tidy and organized cords are often safest when it comes to cord care. Make sure that if you are wrapping cords around an object, it is loose and never too tight. Remember that electric energy produces heat, and so you don’t want the cords to be stretched too tight. Likewise, always store your cords in a cool and dry place. This will ensure that you do not damage your cord’s insulation or the internal wires.
