Electricity is so essential to our everyday lives that it's difficult to conceive of life without it, especially if all of your home appliances are connected to a power outlet. But, unfortunately, we no longer always know how much power we have, where we may link, or where we should avoid touching. In addition, high humidity levels can lead to equipment failures and electrical fires in the wiring.

If you smell sparks, burning plastic, or discover a broken electrical outlet, get to work right away. We arm ourselves with tools for the correct installation of sockets throughout the house, even if it's to buy a new one for this project. But if you are looking for an electrician, don't hesitate to contact your local electrician or us.

To be safe, turn off the main circuit breaker that supplies power to your home before starting work. If you're unsure where the main power supply is located in your house, consult the owner's manual of the installation procedure.

Before you begin replacing the socket, grab yourself a screwdriver (it's preferable to take both a cross and a flat one while repairing), a knife, pliers (pliers). To avoid the residual (stray) current, all tools must have a plastic or wood handle. Electrical tape is also required.

The socket determines the degree of difficulty in repairing it; it can be built-in or external in the apartments of homes since the socket is built on concealed wiring and is thought to be safer. Power supplies are less common but still exist on open wiring.

Before replacing or repairing the outlet should be de-energized; turn off the main switch (automatic protection) at the apartment's entrance. If several automated devices are put in place, scientific pokings can be used to figure out which one is correct - we turn off each of them one by one until we get a successful result.

The following step is to remove the bezel using a screwdriver. If the repair was undertaken due to a damaged case, attach the new front panel; it's that easy.

If things get considerably worse, you must dig further. First, we unplug the wires' terminals and clean the oxidized contacts. Next, the melted blackened ends must be removed with a knife or pliers, then reconnected to the airport and fastened using terminal screws. Finally, if there is a problem with the protective mechanism, we fix it.

How to repair sockets

Finally, you will need to connect the remainder of the connections. You'll need to proceed in the reverse order: insert terminals, fasten front panel with fixing screw. Then turn on the breaker and check if the repaired socket is serviceable. It's preferable to use a low-power, inexpensive device and observe for a few minutes - if the gadget lights up, there are no flames and the odour of burnt wiring, you've done well!

If a more complex breakdown requires lighting repair, such as using a voltage indicator and similar equipment, don't take risks with your health or squander your nerves if you can't discover the origin of the failure or the mundane fear of electric shock. Instead, find a more qualified electrician than yourself. The Geolance emergency lighting service will assist you in finding a suitable assistant - someone with expertise in electrical outlets replacement and repair. It's quick and straightforward to mend the socket with our entertainers.

Cleanliness is close to godliness - it's better not to dirty your hands instead of cleaning them after being charged.
