Do you need an emergency electrician?
It’s fairly easy to decide whether you need to call in an emergency plumber or an emergency builder. It isn’t so obvious if you need to call an emergency electrician. Deciding if you have a major issue or something that can wait for a regular electrician to visit. One of the easiest ways to decide is not from the fault but from the situation.
1. Smoke, sparks and smells.
Smells can be the first indicator that there is a serious fault with your wiring. Something is getting hot enough to melt or char insulation. If a socket, switch or other fitting connected directly to mains electricity smells when it is in use (even more so if it is not being used), something major is wrong. Sometimes, electrical appliances can spark when switched on or off, however if the spark is large, or trips the circuit breaker, then there is a big problem. We don’t really need to warn you about smoke from fittings and fixtures … or do we?
In all of the above situations, switch of the supply at the consumer unit and call us straight away on 0208 406 9834.

It is common knowledge that ‘water and electricity don’t mix‘. Unless it has been distilled or de-ionised, water will conduct electricity. Water can flow along joists and other structural features for long distances. That means it will almost certainly have met your electrical wiring at some point. So, iIf you have had a water leak, you really should call out an emergency electrician who will determine where this has happened and make safe any damage.
3. Exposed or bare wiring
When decorating or doing a bit of DIY in your Earlsfield home, it is quite possible that you could come across some exposed wiring, for example, when you remove wallpaper. It is also possible that a previous owner of your house has covered up an unused fitting, leaving the core of the wires exposed. Even worse would be to discover naked wiring, without insulation, for example, where there is a wall light fitting or power socket.
You may be tempted to just re-cover these or alter the wiring yourself. That’s not the finest of ideas and could get you an entry in the Darwin Awards! Call us instead – 0208 406 9834
As well as these situations, if one or more circuit breakers suddenly start to trip for no apparent reason, that needs investigating urgently too.
