Professionals Only

As already mentioned the threat that a possible misfiring electrical charge can present is very dangerous. In the case that it is clear there is a problem where you need to get a professional to troubleshoot to find out what it is, there is even more reason that you must have a trained professional electrician like us to do this work. When there is something wrong there is added risk of an electrical charge possibly injuring someone. Doing it yourself even if you have done a bit of self education or streamed a step by step video online, is not a good idea.

Electricians have to be careful too

We stress the importance of getting a professional for your safety, and part of the reason is because safety is the number one concern for electricians. A power surge or unexpected charge can cause serious burns and stop the heart. As electricians with our years of training and experience we still make sure to always be suited up in the proper safety gear and we also make sure that we are consistently doing safety checks when working- no live wires hanging out around and what not. However even through all these preparations and cautions we still run into dangerous situations.


When we are doing troubleshooting tests to understand what is going wrong we are on the alert for signs of electrical problems. When you notice things wrong you should call an expert and tell them what you have experienced as malfunctioning. If you have lights that are buzzing or lights that are flicking this is a good indicator that the connection is bad. This is when it is a very good idea to phone an electrician and get them to work on this specific problem. An outlet that is not working is an indicator that on the other side of the wall is a potential electrical fire.
