Frequently Asked Questions

Can I wait until morning to call an electrician?

Sometimes, it isn’t safe to wait. If you’re experiencing an electrical emergency, it’s best to talk to an expert. Waiting may cause an electrical fire, shock, or other damage to your home’s electrical system. 

Is it safe to try and fix electrical problems myself?

It’s typically not safe to DIY electrical problems. Improperly done electrical work can cause serious injury or death, fires, or damage to your appliances. Express Electrical can ensure the job is done right the first time while you and your family stay safe.

What should I do if I have a power outage?

If you’re in Los Angeles, call the LA Department of Water & Power or visit their website to find out if there’s an issue with the power grid or just your home. If the outage is confined to your house, then it could be an electrical emergency. The safest move is to shut off the power at the main breaker and call an expert for advice. Consider turning off all appliances and lights to prevent a surge after power is restored.

How quickly can an emergency electrician arrive?

Depending on your location, emergency electrical help may be available in minutes. If you live in the Los Angeles area and require an emergency call, an Express Electrical electrician can be at your place within 60 to 90 minutes.
