Brownouts, blackouts, severe weather, floods, earthquakes, or a car knocking down a nearby utility pole; it seems like there’s always something impacting electrical service somewhere in Los Angeles County.
We often don’t think about electricity until it’s suddenly not there, or until an electricity-related emergency occurs at home.
Here are some tips from a licensed Los Angeles electrical contractor on what you can do to protect your home and loved ones from the risks of an electrical emergency.
Not only can an electrical fire spread quickly, and fill your home with lethal smoke and fumes, but you don’t know what’s going on inside that panel and even touching it could be fatal.
When the fire’s out, and the fire department gives you permission to go back inside, call a Los Angeles County electrical contractor to repair the circuit damage and get your house back up to code. You won’t be granted an occupancy permit until the building inspector certifies your home is safe to live in, and your Los Angeles County electrical contractor knows what it takes to make sure you pass the electrical inspection.
