Do look for electrical hazards. Make sure that the electric pressure cleaners are always securely connected and grounded. Also, check for any kind of electrical short-circuits that might happen inside or around the house. To be extra cautious, do wear rubber shoes to prevent any kind of electrical shock hazards.
