Ever felt like the whole outlet is going to come out of the wall when trying to pull a cord out? Electrical outlets are linked to outlet boxes which are fitted to drywall or a wall stud. Your outlet box can come loose over time from the material it was once attached to.
Fixing these outlets is not just about tightening a couple of screws. Sometimes, there might be a need to replace the whole outlet box or resize the hole in the wall, or there could be underlying issues happening, like frayed wires, and if not handled by a professional it can pose a real danger to you or your family.
That is why it is important to call a licensed electrician to repair loose electrical boxes in your house or office.

If the wires have been rubbing against any hard objects or sharp edges, there could be significant wire damage. This requires professional repair service to ensure that the outlet is safe to use and that is why it is important to call a licensed electrician to repair loose electrical boxes
