I have a toddler in my home. What can I do to protect my child from playing with electrical outlets or wires?
Apart from teaching children never to play with outlets and wires, we can make your home safer by plugging up unused sockets with socket safety covers. You should also add socket covers to any extension cords and regularly check electronics for frayed or exposed wiring. Keep wiring out of reach of children and discourage wire chewing.
I noticed smoke coming out of my home’s electrical panel. What should I do?
If you notice smoke or fire, you should contact emergency services and your electrical company first to have the fire extinguished and the electricity shut off before the problem spreads. After the initial emergency is dealt with, call John Moore for repairs. We will work to find the cause of the initial problem, discuss the history of existing difficulties with your electrical system, and suggest a repair plan.
I recently discovered that my home is using an older, recalled panel. What should I do?
