24 Hour Emergency Electricians Covering Greater London

Electrical emergencies are one of the leading causes of damage around the world. A countless number of times, we have heard, “Always be prepared for emergencies.” Even though it might seem like we have all that it takes to control everything in emergencies, there are times when calling in a professional is a wise decision. One of the essential lessons in emergency handling is remaining calm and not trying to handle everything by yourself. Sometimes stepping back and trusting a professional with the services is the only right thing.   

Heated wires and switches can cause fires if not taken care of on time. According to the statistics, approximately 19,300 accidental domestic fires occur in the UK every year due to an electrical issue.

Updating wires and switches is crucial in ensuring the safety of everything you love. Everything is under one roof, from your family to your favourite pet to the PlayStation you just bought, and it needs to be protected at all costs.

Is there an emergency? How is electrical fault finding done?

What is the right situation to call for an electrician? No one knows the exact answer. Most people try to take over the situation before things get out of hand, and they have to finally call an electrician. Sometimes the damage caused by self-assessment is not reversible, so it is better to know what you are doing or simply call a professional.  

Your power just went out, and you are unsure what is happening around you? Stay calm and check if there was a power breakdown near you. You can use  UK Power Networks power outage checker to identify whether the power of the whole area is out or just your house.  

Knowing when to call the electrician is essential, and here are some exemplary scenarios which will help you decide.  

  • Sparking in plugs or wires 
  • Uncovered wires 
  • Flickering lights 
  • Smoke coming out of an appliance or wires 

If you see any of these situations around you, call for help immediately. 

Signs that show you that socket and switch inspections and testing are required.

As an ordinary person with fundamental knowledge about electrical items, it is hard to know when the socket and switches need replacement or repairs.

  • Sparks every time you use it  
  • Gets heated up easily 
  • Loose switches 
  • Flickering or dim lights

Emergency repair of faulty or tripping circuits.

Many emergency control programs are conducted in schools and offices, but if it has been a while and you want to refresh your memory, here are some guidelines.  

  • Keep yourself calm and move to a safe place 
  • Call for help immediately  
  • Cut off the electricity from that place 
  • Use a fire extinguisher if needed  
  • Do not try to fix the problem yourself. Wait for professional service.
