How to Keep Your Electrical Outlets Maintained
When you think of items around your home you need to maintain, you might first think of your appliances and HVAC systems. Outlets likely aren’t at the top of the list. However, you rely on these units to keep your electronics and appliances running, and therefore it’s important to keep them functioning properly. Use these tips to keep them maintained:
- Be careful when inserting plugs into outlets to reduce wear and tear.
- Shut off appliances, fixtures, and devices before unplugging them.
- Make sure to pull by the plug, not the cord, when unplugging an item from an outlet.
- Don’t overload a unit with extension cords, appliances, and multi-way plugs.
- Schedule an appointment with a professional to have an electrician inspect the units to make sure they are working properly.

Edison Electric, Inc. is different - we are a business devoted to serving homeowners and their residential electrical needs. We know your home is not a construction site and we take the proper steps to ensure a clean, positive service experience. Our electricians receive ongoing training and wear name tags, boot covers, and clean uniforms. They are professionals who show up on time and take a personal interest in being exceptional. Our electricians are the face of our company and take pride in being the best at what they do.
