Having electrical issues isn’t uncommon. However, there are certain electrical situations that are more serious than others. But how do you determine what is considered an emergency, and what can wait until tomorrow? Here are instances that require 24/7 electrical services.
- Sparks or Fire Occurs – If a fire occurs, always call 911. If your outlets are smoking, or minor sparking is occurring, call an emergency electrician. Sparking has the potential of causing a fire, so always resolve this immediately for the safety of you and others.
- Power Outage – If a power outage in your building occurs, and no neighboring buildings are affected, 24/7 emergency electrical services may be required since the problem is specific to your building.
- Possibility of Water Coming in Contact with Wires – If a flood occurs, or you can see that water is going to come in contact with your wires and electrical system, call an emergency electrician immediately. For severe cases, call 911.
- Exposed Wires – If you can visibly see exposed wires, call an emergency electrician right away. Exposed, live wires that are not insulated can be extremely hazardous and cause harm to you or employees.
