So, how are people supposed to know when to call an emergency electrician? Many people unfortunately do not know what types of electrical problems require calling for an emergency electrician. Here are three top reasons to call for help.
- Your power is out, but the neighbors is not
The first course of action to take when the power goes out is checking to see if everyone else in your neighborhood is without power. If not, then there is an electric problem specific to your home, and it’s time to call a St. Louis emergency electrician. On the other hand, if the entire neighborhood is without power, it is a wide spread electrical problem. Those are the kinds of problems, which can only be fixed by your electric utility company.
- You see sparks or smoke
Sparks or smoke near electrical outlets or panels should cause concern. A burning odor should also cause concern because these symptoms are all indicators of a possible fire and definitely an electrical emergency. Potential problems that can cause these symptoms include loose wires and overloading receptacles. Calling a licensed emergency electrician like Mister Sparky to diagnose the problem is the best way to keep you and your home safe.
- You see rust in the electrical panel
Rust is never a good sign no matter where it appears, but this is especially true for your main electrical panel. Water and electricity should never mix. A rusty electrical panel increases chances for corrosion to spread through the main wiring connections in the panel, causing fire hazards and other problems if left unattended. It would be wise to have an emergency electrician replace a defective panel ASAP.
