Static shocks may normally be harmless but they can be irritating and painful. If you have been looking for ways to avoid static shocks, this article is for you. Read on to find out about different ways to avoid static shocks.
Are you looking for ways to avoid static shocks?
One way to avoid static shocks is to avoid wearing certain clothing and footwear. Static electricity can be generated when two materials make contact. When footwear comes into contact with certain fabrics and surfaces, electric shocks can occur. You may wish to swap rubber-soled shoes for leather ones, especially if you spend your time walking across carpeted floors. Wearing cotton socks instead of wool ones may also help you avoid static shocks.
You could also try humidifying your home to stop static shocks. You are more likely to experience a static shock in a dry environment. Some humidifiers are expensive, but there are many good quality ones on the market that won’t set you back a great deal of money. If static shocks have become a big problem when walking through your home, consider swapping carpets for wooden floors.
To avoid shocks when you’re outside of the home, you can moisturise your skin. You may wish to carry around a bottle of lotion around with you to stop your hands drying out. Holding keys before touching car doors will send voltage to the keys and help you avoid a shock.
