Halloween may be a spooky time of the year, but nothing should frighten you more than damaged electrical outlets! Not only do they prevent your appliances from working, but they also increase the chances of home fires.
Signs You Need an Electrical Outlet Upgrade
They Aren’t GCFI Outlets
All outlets in residential homes and commercial buildings should have GCFI (ground-fault circuit interrupter) outlets. If you don’t you need to call an electrician immediately.
Your Outlets are Sparking
If your electrical outlets are sparking when you plug in an appliance or device, it needs to be replaced. You also might have overloaded your outlet with too many plug-ins.
