When do you need an emergency electrician?
An electrical problem is a very stressful occasion. Unlike other types of emergencies, such as plumbing, electrics is something you really cannot fix on your own. Under UK legislation, all electrical repairs must comply with what is known as the Part P of Building Regulations. Simply put, anyone repairing your electrics must be registered under a government approved scheme. In practice, this means that Part P compliance is required even if you just want to have a look at the problem and carry out checks. So, if something is wrong and you want it checked out, you really need a qualified electrician on site with you as soon as possible. We are fully licensed to deal with your problem, quickly. But do you know how to spot trouble?
Here are sure signs that you should call an emergency electrician without delay:
– Smoke, blackening or outlets that are hot to the touch, or spark: Stop using any such outlet immediately
– Smell of burning plastic: Should be taken seriously, as this can indicate damaged wires, which can lead to an electrical fire
– Wet wires: whether it’s due to flooding, for example in a basement, or an accident. If your wiring is old and some of it is underfoot, you are at risk from leaks and should have the wiring replaced
– Your home/commercial property is the only one that is out of power in your building/street. This is the easiest way to tell that the problem is inside your property, and not with the grid
– A loud humming or buzzing is noise coming from your fuse box: this can indicate a fuse box that is about to fail and leave you with an outage
– An exposed wire: this presents an electrocution/fire hazard, and should be looked at right away
This is not an exhaustive list, but old buildings – there are lots of them in the Soho, W1 area! – are particularly prone to these and other problems associated with outdated wiring and outlets. One thing to remember, though, is that not all electrical problems look dramatic. Even if it’s just a switch that has stopped working, you’ll want it checked out by a professional. A small problem that looks insignificant could cause a more serious one down the line, especially for local businesses that could end up losing income if closed during working hours.
How we can help
We carry out full fault checks to identify the exact location of the problem, always explaining all the steps as we work. Something that is smoking or sparking is obvious, but it is much more frustrating when the lights go off for no apparent reason! We have the expertise and over 10 years’ experience needed to diagnose all problems quickly and efficiently. We have in-depth knowledge of old London housing stock which can be very tricky when it comes to electrics. We are also experienced in covering both domestic and commercial properties – it’s one thing replacing a fuse box in a residential flat, quite another dealing with wiring in a school or government building!
