emergency electrician checking socket issue

When you should call a 24-hour emergency electrician

At one point or another, we are all bound to face an electrical fault. Be it something serious as old wiring or just a damaged power socket, big or small, an electricity problem needs to be dealt with on time, otherwise, you risk a potential fire hazard. This being said, if you have spotted a sign of an electrical fault and you feel your health is in danger due to faulty electrics, you can count on our emergency electrician services.

And if you are wondering what calls for an emergency electrician, here are the types of situations you most definitely need to contact us for:

Power outages - The most common reason behind power outages is a failure of the electrical system. In a time when you many work from home, the electricity demand is much higher. When temperatures drop, your heating appliances can also overload your system. If you are faced with this type of problem frequently, your best bet is to get a professional to check out your property. Total power loss can be dangerous if it affects your heating, or there is a vulnerable person in the house. So, whatever your emergency is get in touch with us and let us quickly make your home safe again.

A burning smell coming from an outlet, switch, or fuse box - When you put too much pressure on one power outlet, you risk it beginning to heat up and even burn. This will be accompanied by a burnt smell and marks around the outlet. The first thing you should do if you notice a burnt outlet is to call an electrician. Don't touch the outlet because it could be very hot. If not repaired right away, this can lead to a serious electrical fire and more expensive repairs. If you see smoke coming from a socket, or detect a burning smell, turn off your power supply and contact an emergency electrician .

Sparks coming out of outlets when you use them - Sparks flying from anything is never a good thing, especially when it comes to power outlets. If you are currently dealing with such a situation, call a professional ASAP.

Circuit breakers tripping with increasing frequency- If you have a damaged appliance in your home or wiring issues that you don't know about, a constantly tripping circuit breaker is a very good tell that something's wrong.

A hissing or loud buzzing coming from the electrical panel - In no circumstance, a buzzing electrical panel is a good thing. If you hear a loud noise coming out from yours, you are probably dealing with a faulty circuit breaker and this require immediate actions.

Lights flickering - If your lights start to flicker and you are sure that there isn't an issue with the bulb, you are probably dealing with a poor connection somewhere along the circuit. This can lead to sparking, overheating, and fire.

Ceiling fixtures that are hot to the touch - No, a hot fixture is not a normal thing. If the ones in your property are hot when you touch them, you probably have an issue with the wiring or you've used the wrong type of bulb. It might be easy to ignore it because it's difficult to reach the new fixtures, but this should not be ignored.

Power cut off inside kitchen - If you are struggling with power cuts in your kitchen, you may have issues with your fuse box or the wiring connecting to it. A faulty oven socket can be a disaster when you take care of your family. Whatever the situation is, experienced electricians will handle the issue.

Electrical cables close to water mains due to accidental water damage - If an accidental water leak in your property or your neighbour is making you feel in danger, try to shut off the electricity and reach us so we can inspect the situation and help you feel safe again.

Electrical fire - An electrical fire can be caused by a faulty system or appliance. You should have a working smoke detector and an electrical fire extinguisher. It's also important to remember that electrical fires are extremely dangerous and should not be taken lightly. Even if you get the fire out, you need to take immediate action. Do not turn your power back on after the fire is out. You should immediately call a professional electrician to come inspect your electrical system, find the problem, and make appropriate repairs.

  • Q: Are flickering lights considered an emergency?

    A: Generally, flickering lights can be a sign of a problem with your wiring or another type of electrical fault in your property. A big percentage of domestic fires in the UK are due to appliance breakdowns and damaged cables. Needless to say, flickering lights is the sort of issue you just can't leave to chance. If you are dealing with such an issue, call a certified electrician ASAP.

  • Q: What is an electrical emergency? When should I call you?

    A: There are plenty of indicators that scream "electricity issues". Here are a few of them:
    - You get electrocuted when you touch certain devices, switches, or power sockets;
    - The power supplies and outlets have been in contact with water;
    - There is a burnt or smokey scent coming out from your power sockets when you plug something in.
    If you have experienced the above-mentioned and feel that you are at risk, make sure to contact a professional to come and inspect your property ASAP.

  • Q: Can a power socket catch fire with nothing plugged in?

    A: The short answer is yes. You see, a fire could start if there are loose or corroded wires, dampness, or if you’ve unplugged something from an overloaded socket. You can also end up with a fire hazard if a short happens in the socket or wiring inside the wall. Whatever the case, if there is a power socket in your property that is hot to the touch, get a professional to check it out ASAP.

  • Q: What should I do in case of an electrical fire?

    A: Your first task should be to cut off the electricity in the property - only after that should you try to put the fire out. NEVER use water to put the fire out when the power is still one. Try to cut oxygen with a blanket or other piece of heavy fabric. If you are going to be using a fire extinguisher, check out what type it is. Electrical fires are considered Class C fires, which means that you’ll need a specific extinguisher. The majority of residential fire extinguishers are multi-purpose - still, you still need to double-check before you use yours.
