These days, electricity is an essential part of our daily lives at home. Whether you’re enjoying a well-deserved cup of tea, taking a warm bath or grabbing a cold beer from the fridge, we all need it to keep everything ticking along nicely.
So what happens if something goes wrong and suddenly your electrical system shuts down? It can be frustrating, inconvenient and sometimes a little bit frightening. In many situations, we don’t have warning and the luxury to book in an appointment for help, so this is why we can be on hand to help – as your trusted emergency electrician in Nottingham.
Not sure whether you’ve got an emergency on your hands or not? In all cases, call us if you’re not sure, but here are some common scenarios where you might need some expert help:
The power in your home has gone down
You might want to first check with your neighbours or others in your street. If their power has gone too, it could be a sign that there has been a local power cut, in which case your network distributor should be on hand to help.
If, however, the problem is solely in your home, it could indicate that there is a problem with your electrical wiring. If this is the case, call an emergency electrician straight away. An emergency electrician will be able to inspect your system and repair any faults, giving you peace of mind that your electrics are safe and ready for use. If you wait until the morning, not only could you be putting your safety at risk, but you will also wake up to a puddle under your fridge and no means of making a morning cuppa!
There is a smell of burning or you see smoke
If this happens near your power outlets, you should call an emergency electrician straight away.
This could be a sign that something is burning in the circuit itself, and there is a risk of fire – something that needs to be avoided at all costs. Perhaps your wiring has been damaged, or it wasn’t installed properly in the first place: whatever the reason, it is essential you call us and we can identify the problem and solve it safely and efficiently.
Water come into contact with your power outlets
Flooding has become all the more common in recent times with the weather seemingly getting more extreme, but if any water comes into contact with your electrical supply, the safest thing to do is to call an emergency electrician.
Water and electricity do not mix, and can cause nasty shocks and also fire, so if any contact has been made with water and your power outlets, it is advisable to get them checked out straight away by a professional to ensure they are safe to use. An emergency electrician can inspect any damaged goods as well as check over your wiring system to make sure everything is safe.
So, if you need an emergency electrician in Nottingham, please give me a call and I can offer advice and get to your home as quickly as possible. Don’t take a chance – call me today.
