Signs Your Switch Plates & Outlets Need to be Replaced

If you notice any of these warning signs, you should seriously consider replacing your switch plates or old outlets:

  • The outlet is warm or hot to the touch.

  • You have missing, cracked, or broken cover plates.

  • You have a teardrop-shaped outlet.

At Unibolt Electric, our licensed electricians will get your electrical job done both quickly and safely, and we will make sure your home complies with all local electrical codes.

Increasing the Safety of Your Electrical Outlets


You want your children to be as safe as possible in your home, of course, and one of the best ways of doing that is changing your electrical outlets. In order to make sure your children are protected from electrocution and/or shock, follow these simple and effective steps:

  • Call Unibolt Electric to inspect your outlets, especially if you have an older home. One of the best things you can do to increase household safety is by upgrading your outlets, as well as their wiring at the electrical panel.

  • Use outlet covers to cover any empty electrical outlets. Children may try and insert something they shouldn’t in an uncovered outlet, and that could lead to an electrical shock. Plastic placeholders can childproof your outlets and be easily removed when you need to use them.

  • Make sure all electrical cords are secured and out of the reach of children. In many instances, a child has been hurt because he or she saw a cord as a plaything, or worse, something to chew on. Buy cord keepers to stow away any excess slack.

If you would like to learn more about how to make your home as safe as possible for your children, or to schedule an appointment for light switches, outlet, and dimmer service, give us a call at Unibolt Electric.
