Don’t Get Shocked by the Wet Weather Allstar Electrical Service Will Bail You Out

Colorado is experiencing one of its wettest springs on record, and as you’ve known since you were a kid, electricity and water don’t mix. Be safe and take precautions against electrical shock before going into any area that’s wet or flooded.

Your building’s electrical service is designed to shut off any circuit that is shorted, overloaded, or has other serious safety problems by tripping breakers or blowing fuses. With the current weather, you may experience electrical interruptions in certain rooms, your entire building, or even your whole neighborhood. Before attempting to restore service yourself at a service panel, be sure that it’s safe to do so.

Many buildings have their main electrical panel in the basement, in a garage, or even on an outside wall. Never approach the panel if there is standing water or soaked carpet, wet grass, mud or damp concrete or flooring.

There can also be situations where service is present but danger exists. For instance, wet insulation may eventually sag and contact exposed parts inside fixtures and outlets. A wet ceiling with light fixtures may not be energized until the light switch is turned on, or outlets in a damp area may still be live but can present a shock hazard when used

These and other dangerous conditions can exist long after flood water has been removed, so don’t take chances—call the pros at Allstar Electrical Service.
