Childproofing a home is mandatory when you have kids, but it's not a bad idea to put some of those electricity practices in place in every home. Never overload an outlet with too many appliances, and always be careful when plugging anything in. A small shock while you're standing on a ladder can be an ugly accident. Don't leave appliance cords in places where you can trip on them, and always unplug your bathroom appliances after you use them. If you ever spot any exposed wires on an appliance or cord, get it checked out by an electrician.
