How to Deal With Electrical Emergencies

No matter if are experiencing an electrical emergency in your home or place of business, you should always call an electrician instead of trying to fix the problem yourself. Attempting to correct your electrical issue yourself could result in personal injury (electrical shock), electrical fire, or even death.

If you have an electrical emergency in your home or office, call the fire department to eliminate the risk of an electrical fire. Then, call the experts at Hoffman Electrical!

We also suggest following the emergency electrical tips:

  • Never touch a smoking or sparking outlet – If an outlet is smoking or sparking, chances are your electrical wiring is malfunctioning and overheating. Tinkering with it could result in an electrical shock.
  • Check the breaker panel – If an electrical circuit is overloaded, it will cause your breaker panel to trip a circuit. In extreme circumstances, your breaker panel could be sparking. If so, gather your family, pets, coworkers, etc. and vacate the premises immediately.
  • If it is safe to do so, shut off electrical power in your home – Removing the source of the electrical emergency is the fastest way to reduce risk, so shutting off power at your panel should be a priority, unless the panel is buzzing, sparking, or otherwise unsafe.
  • Never attempt to use water on an electrical fire – If the flame is very small, a multi-purpose or correctly rated extinguisher can be used. If the fire is larger, or does not respond to the extinguisher, evacuate your home immediately using a predetermined evacuation plan.

Signs You Need an Emergency Electrician in Tampa, FL

So what exactly constitutes an electrical emergency? Well, rule number one is that it’s an emergency any time you feel at risk or in danger from the electrical systems and appliances in your home. It’s much better to err on the side of safety when we’re talking about something as potentially destructive as electricity!

Otherwise, it’s a good indication that you need an emergency response when:

  • You smell burnt wiring. The sharp, acrid smell of burnt wiring is highly recognizable and if you notice it, it’s time to call in the experts right away.
  • Your appliances or breaker panel are buzzing. A loud humming or buzzing indicates an excessive electrical charge, and when your home is operating properly, you should never hear it. If you do, the odds are good that something has gone wrong, and calling in for emergency service would be a good idea.
  • You notice discoloration on outlets. Brown or blackened streaks on outlets and switches is a sign that things are getting a little (a lot) too hot, meaning you need an emergency expert.
  • Your outlets are sparking. Sparking in outlets, switches, or near wires is scary. And you know what? It should be! This is a crystal clear sign that something is horribly wrong, and warrants emergency service immediately.
