24 Hour Electricians You Can Trust

Tuesday, July 31, 2012
In Florida, there is a chance of hurricanes or at the least bad storms almost year round.  Because of this, it is important to find not only an electrician you can trust, but one that offers 24 hour emergency electrical services.  With 24 hour emergency services, your electrician can help you when your power goes out, or if there has been a lightning strike to your home that causes a surge in the electrical appliances.
 
If there is a problem at your home after a storm and you think you need a 24 hour electrician, there are some things to remember while you wait.  First and foremost, stay at least 30 feet away from any fallen power lines, including those which are sagging or broken.  You should also avoid cutting up any fallen trees that are entangled in the power lines, as you do not know if the power lines are dead or not, and if they are alive they could be deadly to the touch.
 
You should also keep track of information for your electrician, so you are able to tell them the exact problem, as well as what time it started.  Try to remember what items were turned on when the power went out, and turn the switches of these items to the “off” position.  This step is especially crucial for any heating elements, like toaster ovens or irons, which could potentially start a fire if turned back on and forgotten about.  You should also unplug any sensitive electrical equipment like computers to avoid any damage from electrical surges.
 
While you are waiting for the emergency electrician to show u, make sure to keep your refrigerator and freezer closed as much as possible, as this should help keep the contents good for up to 24 hours.  To be on the safe side, you should check the temperature of food before you cook and eat it, throwing away anything that has a temperature of more than 40 degrees Fahrenheit.  Conserve water as well, especially if the electricity problem is city wide, as there could be issues with the power at the well pumps or pumping stations as well.
 
Once the emergency electrician gets to your home, they will be able to diagnose the problem and work to rectify the situation.  If you are looking for 24 hour emergency electrical services in Miami, look no further than Superior Electrical.  Our electricians have years of experience, and will help you get your power back and the electricity in your home running effectively as quickly as possible.
