When to Call an Electrician: Signs Your Home Needs Professional Fault Rectification

  • Burning smells: If you smell something akin to burning plastic or rubber, especially near electrical outlets or appliances, shut off the power and contact us right away. It could be a wiring issue overheating, leading to a potential fire.
  • Shocks or tingles: No good! Even a slight tingle from an outlet or appliance is a warning sign of faulty wiring. Don't risk it – let our qualified electricians diagnose the problem safely.
  • Flickering lights, dimming, or sudden outages: While occasional flickering might be due to a power surge, persistent issues could indicate overloaded circuits or faulty wiring. Get it checked out before it disrupts your daily life.
