When to Call an Emergency Electrician

At what point does an electrical problem warrant calling an emergency electrician? Certain electrical situations can escalate quickly and should be dealt with by a professional. Mister Sparky offers 24/7 emergency electrician services for the NWA region. Here are a few reasons to call our 24-hour emergency line:

1. I see electric sparks, smoke or flames.

Anytime you see electrical sparks or flames, there is a possible emergency. In the event of sparks or flames, call the fire department immediately for your safety. If your outlets are smoking, call a 24-hour emergency electrician. Letting this problem persist could result in a house fire and thousands of dollars in damages to your home. Mister Sparky specializes in electrician services like aluminum wiring repair, electric outlet/ switch repair, and electrical panel repair. You will be in good hands with Mister Sparky Electrician, the best emergency electrician in Northwest Arkansas.

2. I see exposed wires.

Please do not use outlets or cords that have exposed wiring. If the wires are live and not insulated, you are at risk of burns, ventricular fibrillation, neurological effects, arc-flash hazards and even death if you touch the wires. Call Mister Sparky Electrician NWA. We are a 24-hour emergency electrician, and we have the area’s most qualified electrical technicians.

3. Electric power outage

Everyone panics when the power goes out. You can no longer spend countless hours keeping up with friends on Facebook or pinning everything on Pinterest. You can no longer watch television or play games on your smart phone when you’re in the thick of a power outage. However, there is no need to panic if the whole neighborhood is experiencing a power outage. In a situation like that, call your electric company and they will help you. Only when your house is exclusively dark is it time to call a 24-hour emergency electrician.

4. Water is coming in contact with wires and outlets.

In the unfortunate event of flooding in your home or some other disaster where water gets in contact with wires and outlets, calling a 24/7 emergency electrician is vital. Obviously, the risk of electric shock is greater in areas that are wet or damp since impure water acts as a conductor. Calling a 24-hour emergency electrician, like Mister Sparky, will put you at ease. We make sure to install ground fault circuit interrupters (GFCIs) once all the water is drained and dried. Hopefully, your home won’t flood again, but if it does GFCIs will interrupt the electrical circuit before a current strong enough to cause death or serious injury occurs.
