Nairobi socket replacement
Outlets in your home can be damaged or broken for a variety of reasons. Typically mounted low on the wall, sockets may wear out from daily use. However, a cracked or damaged outlet is a hazard and should be replaced as soon as possible to keep you and your family safe.
In some cases, your outlet may be unavailable for other reasons, such as Blocked sockets or loose plug prongs in sockets. In these cases, the inside of the socket may be damaged and must be replaced.
If you notice a burning smell from the outlet or see black spots, contact an electrician immediately.
In most cases, sockets need to be replaced, not repaired. The reason is that there are no replacement parts for the socket’s internal components, so a new socket is usually required.
However, the socket can be repaired in some cases, such as If the socket is too loose or too tight, your plug won’t fit. If your socket is blocked, it can be removed.
When an outlet doesn’t work at all, the problem is usually not the socket itself, but the wiring behind the outlet or the fuse box that needs repair – which may have just come loose or be indicative of a bigger problem.
Our experienced Nairobi electricians are trained to identify socket problems and fix them quickly to ensure we provide you with the most cost-effective and fastest solution.
Installing new sockets in Nairobi home or office
Adding extra outlets to your house or apartment can make your home or office safer and more functional. Modern homes are now equipped with more technology than ever, as we all have more devices such as TVs, game consoles, laptops, digital TV boxes, and more.

You can even reduce the need for more sockets by adding sockets with USB jacks, reducing the need to charge things like phones, kindles, and other devices.

Much older homes and offices were designed at a time when we were using fewer kitchen utensils than we do today, so you may find you have to constantly unplug things like a toaster or kettle to make room for an electric mixer bowl or even a microwave space.
An electrician can easily and simply install a new electrical outlet in your home or office, and our friendly, experienced electricians will work with you to ensure the job is done with minimal hassle and disruption.
