Outlet Issues That Require Professional Repairs
Outlets may look like small devices in your home, but malfunctioning units can cause big problems. If you notice the following issues with your outlets you should schedule an appointment with an electrician as soon as possible:
- Worn-out slots: If your outlets have loose contact points and the plug is no longer being held securely in the unit, it can create electrical resistance and heat, which can cause the circuit breaker to trip.
- Loose wire connections: If wire connections become too loose they can cause circuit breakers to trip.
- Cracks: Cracks in the body of devices can allow dust or debris to enter the unit.
- Improper rating: Outlets are rated for a particular amount of amps, typically 15 or 20. Make sure the outlets you are using are appropriate for the items you are plugging into them.
- No ground connection: If an outlet has not been properly connected to the circuit grounding wire, or if the system isn’t grounded, it needs to be inspected by a professional.
- Lack of AFCI or GFCI Protection: If outlets in certain areas of your home are not up-to-code by following AFCI and GFCI requirements, have an electrician upgrade your devices to keep your household safe.

How to Prepare for a Housing Inspection
Don’t stress about your housing inspection. Instead, prepare your house now. Some of the most common repairs homeowners can make before an inspection include:
- Make sure your outdoor faucets have backflow preventers to ensure contaminated water doesn’t enter the water supply.
- Check your smoke alarms to ensure they work and they have new batteries. You should also make sure you have them installed in the required places throughout your home.
- Look for leaky pipes near your sinks and tubs.
