Homeowners vary greatly in their willingness to label something as an emergency. For some, a tripped circuit breaker could feel like an emergency, while others wait until sparking or popping sounds are heard to draw the line. Regardless of how you define a dire situation, it never hurts to call an emergency electrician if you suspect that an issue may be dangerous for you to approach or repair on your own, if your home or family may be in danger, or if you’re just unsure about what the issue may be. After all, talking with a local electrician about the issue is going to be much more reliable and specific to your case’s needs than a simple Google search. Your electrician may find that you do infact have an emergency that a qualified professional needs to take care of right away, and that would make the call well worth it.

Don’t DIY

We never recommend attempting to do electrical work yourself, especially if that work means consulting a search engine for a quick how-to. Often electrical problems are complicated, and require a professional to safely find the root of the issue. If you ever have an electrical emergency in the middle of the night, please do not try to take matters into your own hands or save it until morning. Electrical issues can quickly lead to injury, damages to your home, or worse, and it really isn’t worth the risk. In Des Moines, this means calling the emergency electricians at Electrical Gurus for day or night electrical services.
