Is it okay to paint your devices?

April 16th, 2021

It’s Friday! You know what that means…. It’s Toolbox Talk Day!

Is it okay to paint over your outlets and switches? The short answer is no, we discourage this. Painting over your devices can cause fires due to paint being conductive and causing poor connections. It can hide the flaws and defects that an existing outlet or switch may have, and let’s be honest… it does not look good and makes working on them difficult.  If you or someone you know has outlets or switches that have been painted over, give us a call and we can come up with a plan to install new happy outlets!
