Warning Signs You Need Professional Electrical Repair

Electrical repair is nothing to sneeze at. Damage to your electrical system can affect your household’s ability to function, and while modern homes have safety measures in place, electricity can be quite dangerous without a trained electrician performing repairs. Here in Puyallup, electrical repair services are standing by to correct the issue, but before they do, you need to be able to call them in.

Here’s A Short List of Some Warning Signs You Need Professional Electrical Repair

  • The circuit breaker keeps tripping. The breakers are an important safety feature in your home, cutting off power in the event the wires or circuits are overloaded with too much power. Without them, the excess power could damage your electrical system and possibly even start a fire.
  • Loose outlets. If you plug something into your outlet and the plug falls out, it probably means that the contacts are worn or loose. Either way, that spells trouble: rendering the outlet useless at best and damaging whatever is plugged into it at worst. Similar problems can occur in the event of “backstabbed” (loose) wires connecting the outlet to the rest of the electrical system.
  • Flickering lights. Your lights will flicker if they suffer from an interrupted power flow, which usually means either a loose connection somewhere or frayed wires somewhere along the line. (Wires can become frayed through age, or from external damage such as vermin chewing on them.) Flickering lights can sometimes get worse in instances of high wind or rain, as the inclement weather rattles or shifts the pertinent component.
