5 signs that your electrical outlets are unsafe
Sparks coming from the outlet
This is an obvious red flag, but it’s important to mention. If your outlet is sparking, some safety precautions to take are:
- Shut off the breaker linked to the outlet
- Unplug anything from the outlet
- Call a licensed electrician to address the problem – don’t try to fix it yourself
Discoloration around the outlet
Unless it’s dirt, black or brown marks around an outlet are a cause for concern. Again, you should not attempt to fix this yourself; call a licensed electrician. Discoloration on an outlet is a sign that there is burning happening. Electricity generates heat, which causes burning.
Burnt outlets typically come from arcing. Arcing is when the metal bits in the outlet become damaged or loose, which causes it to overheat. This overheating can lead to a fire, so get the problem addressed by an electrician near you.
The outlet emits a buzzing, cracking, or popping sound
Your outlets should never make any kind of noise. Popping often occurs from an electrical spark which can lead to a blown out outlet. A blown out outlet = fire.
If you notice the sound and it goes away, this doesn’t mean the issue has resolved itself. Whenever this occurs, turn off the outlet via the breaker and call a licensed Kansas City electrician.
The outlet is hot to the touch
This could be caused by a variety of issues.
- Damaged outlets
- Powerstrip overload
- Too many devices at once
- AC/DC transformers
Call an electrician in Kansas City to find the source of the problem.

Signs that You Have Hazardous Electrical Problems
According to the U.S. Fire Administration, electrical malfunctions are one of the top four causes of house fires in the U.S. That’s why it’s incredibly important to always catch home electrical problems before it’s too late.
Your lights shouldn’t be flickering, unless you have a ghost… just kidding! 👻
But seriously, flickering lights are a cause for your attention. It may indicate a power surge from the system being too strained by high-powered appliances. Consider updating your electrical wiring to avoid future issues.
A burning smell is alarming and shouldn’t be coming from any of your outlets. If it’s happening, immediately unplug everything and call a Kansas City electrician. You should also follow the same process if your electrical panel has a burning odor.
Tingly to the touch
If you touch your appliances or light switches and feel a mild shock or tingling, reach out to a licensed electrician.
This isn’t the same thing as being shocked by a doorknob from your carpet’s static electricity (which isn’t a cause for concern). If you’d like to lower static electricity in your home, we recommend using a humidifier to moisten the air.
Regularly tripping the breakers
Breaker circuits trip when they get overloaded; it’s their job and a safety measure to combat fires. If your breaker shuts off a lot, it may not just be because of an appliance. An underlying home electrical problem may be the cause, so get an inspection!
