Are Your Outlets Safe?
As outlets age, they can become a serious nuisance, and more significantly, they become more of a hazard to you and your family. Keep an eye out for the following signs that your outlets are in need of repair or replacement.
The Outlet No Longer Works
It’s hard to miss this one. If your outlet is no longer providing any power, it’s in need of repair or replacement. Just make sure that the breaker hasn’t been tripped before you go to the trouble of calling an electrician.
The Outlet is Cracked
It may seem as if it’s only a cosmetic issue, but cracked outlets can gather dust which can pose both an electrocution hazard and a fire hazard to you and your family. Be sure to replace a cracked outlet as soon as possible.
The Outlet is Hot
If an outlet in your home is hot to the touch that’s never a good sign. It likely indicates damage to the wiring, which can cause an electrical fire if left unchecked. If you recently had the wiring installed, the problem may be that the installation was done incorrectly. Whatever the case may be, you’re going to need the help of an experienced electrician to ensure that your home is safe.
Burns Marks or Melted Plugs
If you find burns anywhere near an outlet, or that something you’ve plugged in was melted by the outlet, your home may be in serious danger of an electrical fire. Avoid that outlet until a professional electrical contractor has fixed the issue.
Plugs Keep Falling Out
It’s more than just a headache when your outlets can no longer hold a plug, it’s a danger to your home. A loose outlet can cause electrical arcing, sparking, and potentially a fire. When this happens, don’t hesitate to call SALT Light & Electric.
Smoke and Sparking
These should be the most telltale signs that your outlets pose a threat to your home. If you smell smoke or see any kind of sparking, avoid that outlet and call an electrical contractor.
