Manhattan Electrical Emergency Services
During a Manhattan electrical emergency, one should call for Manhattan electrical emergency service immediately. The question is, what exactly is considered an electrical emergency. Here are some scenarios where you should call for Manhattan electrical emergency service:
When to Call for Manhattan Electrical Emergency Service
- You see electric sparks, smoke or flames. Anytime you see electrical sparks or flames, there is a possible emergency that requires Manhattan electrical emergency service. In the event of sparks or flames, call the fire department immediately for your safety. If your outlets are smoking, call a 24-hour emergency electrician. Letting this problem persist could result in a house fire and thousands of dollars in damages to your home.
- You see exposed wires. Never use outlets or cords that have exposed wiring. If the wires are live and not insulated, you are at risk of burns, ventricular fibrillation, neurological effects, arc-flash hazards and even death if you touch the wires. Call for Manhattan electrical emergency service.
- Electric power outage. Everyone panics when the power goes out. You can no longer watch television or play games on your smart phone when you’re in the thick of a power outage. However, there is no need to panic if the whole neighborhood is experiencing a power outage. In a situation like that, call your electric company and they will help you. Only when your house is exclusively dark is it time to call for Manhattan electrical emergency service.
- Water is getting in contact with wires and outlets. In the unfortunate event of flooding in your home or some other disaster where water gets in contact with wires and outlets, calling a 24/7 emergency electrician is vital. Obviously, the risk of electric shock is greater in areas that are wet or damp since impure water acts as a conductor. Calling a 24-hour emergency electrician, like Mister Sparky, will put you at ease. We make sure to install ground fault circuit interrupters (GFCIs) once all the water is drained and dried. Hopefully, your home won’t flood again, but if it does GFCIs will interrupt the electrical circuit before a current strong enough to cause death or serious injury occurs.
