We all know that electricity is dangerous, but when it comes to a loose wire or a dodgy socket it can be very tempting to try and do it yourself – but stop, because this could end very badly. At First Strike Electrical we work with electricity every single day and as a result we know the risk it can pose. To learn the problems you shouldn’t try and fix yourself read on.
If you hear a crackling noise from your socket when you turn it on or there are a few sparks every time you flick the switch then this is a serious safety problem. Whatever you do, do not try and tamper with the socket as you could end up electrocuting yourself or even causing an electrical fire.
If you have this, please call us immediately on 02035 030 755.
If you’ve noticed that one of your sockets are getting hot – don’t push it to the back of your mind. It can be easy to think ‘oh, it’s nothing’ but it could be something serious and its better to check rather than leave it.
So if you’ve noticed that your socket is getting hot and/or there is burn marks please get in touch with us immediately.
If you are finding it difficult to turn your plug switch on and off then this needs to be fixed as a matter of urgency.
