Signs You Need an Emergency Electrician

Recognizing the signs of emergency electrical problems is key for arranging prompt repairs and minimizing the risk of shocks, electrical fire emergencies, or other electrical hazards to your home. If you’re concerned about the safety of your electrical system, contact our licensed technicians for professional advice and assessment.

Watch for these signs that your home needs emergency electrical services.

Power outage

If your entire home or specific areas lose power and the homes around you still have power, there may be an underlying problem requiring urgent attention, such as damaged wiring or faulty circuits.

Burning smell

Burning smells from your outlets, switches, electrical panels, or other electrical equipment can indicate overheating circuits or wiring problems. 

Electrical shocks

Sparks or electrical arcing can indicate electrical faults due to loose wiring connections, frayed wiring, exposed junction boxes, and other problems.

Sparks or arcing

If your outlets or switches emit sparks, are warm to the touch, or cause electrical arcs, they require immediate attention from an electrician. These issues often result from loose connections or damaged equipment.

Water exposure

After floods, leaks, or similar issues in your home, water may come in contact with your electrical system and pose serious safety and damage risks.

Natural damage

Wildfires, lightning storms, earthquakes, downed trees, and other external factors common to Los Angeles and California can cause surges and electrical shorts.

  • Resetting tripped breakers.
  • Inspecting equipment for frayed or damaged wires or burn marks.

What should I do until the emergency electrician arrives?

Prioritize safety in the event of an electrical emergency. Turn off power at your electrical panel if it’s safe to do so, then evacuate yourself and your household from the premises while waiting for your electrician. If necessary, contact emergency services. Your electrician can also provide you further guidance ahead of their arrival based on your unique situation.
