Common Electrical Emergencies

It may be tempting to troubleshoot your electrical problem and handle emergency electrical wiring repair or replacement yourself, especially if you think it might save you a couple of bucks. However, many electrical issues can be a sign of a bigger problem and require a skilled solution. In some cases, you may need a permit to complete the work, such as when an emergency electrical panel repair involves increasing your home’s amperage. 

Our emergency electrical contractors can troubleshoot your issue, offer an effective solution, and complete the work in accordance with the most recent residential and commercial electrical codes, so you know your family and your home are in good hands.

Make an emergency electrical call if you notice the following electrical hazards:

  • Smoke, sparks, or a burning smell Sparks, smoke, or a burning smell coming from electrical outlets, switches, or appliances signals a serious hazard. Loose or eroded wires have likely made contact with other parts of the electrical housing or appliance. Alternatively, a damaged component may be causing a short circuit.
  • Exposed wires If you see exposed or damaged wires in an appliance or anywhere else in your home, you’re risking an electrical shock or potential electrical fire. Electrical hazards cause 51,000 fires each year in the US. 
  • Electrical shocks When someone in your home receives an electrical shock, call emergency services right away. When everyone is safe, it’s critical to have the source of the shock looked at and repaired as soon as possible.
  • Water near electrical equipment or wiring Water is a strong conductor of electricity, and the hard water in North Carolina is rich in minerals that improve conductivity. It doesn’t take much for electricity to arch towards water and travel through it. If you see water in and around your electrical services or appliances, stay back. Don’t try to clean up the water until you’ve turned off the power and consulted with a professional. Electrified water can kill you.

Even if you haven’t noticed any of these common electrical issues, a true emergency can still occur if the problem is causing significant disruption to your home or business. Call an after-hours electrician to resolve the issue quickly and safely.

What To Do in an Electrical Emergency

In an electrical emergency, every move matters. If you’re experiencing an electrical emergency, follow these steps:

  1. Don’t touch or try to move someone receiving an electric shock.
  2. Turn off the power at the electrical panel if it’s safe to do so. 
  3. Don’t enter a space with wet floors near electrical equipment
  4. Call emergency services 
  5. Administer first aid

When everyone is safe, call QRC for a residential or commercial emergency electrician.
