Loose Outlet Plugs

Many people end up with a loose outlet plug. While this might not seem like a big deal, it could cause some issues.

However, if this seems like too much or you are too nervous to mess with the electrical, you can contact Peaden’s electrical work experts today.

Short Circuit Issues

You might also experience short circuit issues. These issues often happen with appliances such as toaster ovens or hairdryers. They can cause you to trip the circuit. If you have tried resetting your breaker, but the issue is still occurring, you can call electrical work experts at Peaden today. These experts can determine if the issue is with the appliance, the outlet, or the circuit.
