Emergency Electrician Pollards Hill
Let’s face it, not all of the houses in Pollards Hill are new builds! So what? First of all, the electrical wiring will be getting a bit long in the tooth. So will the switches, sockets, fittings and so on. Maybe they were fitted back in the eighties or nineties … in some cases, maybe even older. We have been to houses with thirties wiring still in use!
The ideal situation would be to re-wire but for most people, that’s not really an option. Unless you are doing a major renovation, it is a lot of upheaval. Therefore, avoiding an electrical emergency is simply a case of observation and management.

Tips from an Emergency Electrician for Pollards Hill
Some signs of a developing electrical disaster are easy to spot. Others are not.
One of the easiest to notice is a ‘fishy’ smell, in other words, the smell of overheating thermo-plastic. The source is often a light fitting or a fault in a switch or socket. Left unchecked, electrical overheating faults can cause fires. They are usually very simple for a Pollards Hill emergency electrician to put right, providing you call them in quickly.
Another dead giveaway that you need a qualified and experienced emergency electrician is when an RCD or the main switch on the fuse board keeps tripping. Although easy to spot, finding the problem is not so easy. A professional Pollards Hill electrician has the correct equipment and expertise that he or she can use to track down the reason. Our electricians are equipped with state-of-the-art test equipment, so it won’t take long to identify your issue.
If your lights are flickering, that could indicate problems with the circuit. You can check switches are thrown properly and bulbs are not loose. Just make sure though that you do that safely. If all seems well and they still flicker, that is the time to call South London Electricians on 0208 406 9834.
If you hear a buzzing or sizzling noise when you switch something on – switch it off immediately. This is an indicator that the electricity is sparking across an air gap. That is not good. Do not hesitate to call an emergency electrician as the small sparks causing the noise could soon ignite a fire.
It’s not just the circuits that can develop a problem, appliances can develop internal faults. If it is out of guarantee and you don’t want to replace it, get it checked by a professional electrician.
What Makes a Good Emergency Electrician?
First and foremost, experience. A time-served emergency emergency electrician who has a lot of experience will probably have encountered the same problem that you are having before. They will be able to isolate and repair the issue quickly. A reliable Pollards Hill emergency electrician should be able to reel off a list of local and fairly local places where they have worked.
It is always important to check what qualifications that an electrician offers. It is not too difficult then to check with each organisation that their claims are true – most of the registers of commercial and domestic electricians have websites that can be searched.
Try to get some personal recommendations. Ask around your friends and work colleagues about any emergency electricians in Pollards Hill that they have used and recommend.
