Electrical Storm Damage hero

No matter the extent of the damage, we’ll restore your property quickly and efficiently.

Electrical Storm Damage

When heavy rainfall, destructive winds, hailstones, or lightning have caused water to get into your electrical outlets, this can result in a potential electrical hazard that requires immediate repair.

Damaged cables can pose serious health and electrical risks to appliances and the environment. Our fully trained, licensed Level 2 ASP electricians are on hand to identify and repair any electrical issues quickly, protecting you and your family from electrocution, burns and electric fires.

How do we protect electrical systems during a storm?

Rainy weather and summer storms can bring heavy winds and lightning, which can wreak havoc on your home’s electrical system.

A power surge occurs when lightning strikes a power line, which overwhelms electronics and appliances that are plugged in. Power surge damage can be avoided by unplugging items before a storm or using a surge protector in your home.

Circuit breakers in your home can also be tripped by strong winds. To protect your HVAC system, turn off the main breaker and unplug any electrical appliances that aren’t needed.

Benefits Of Repairing Damaged Cables From Storm

After a storm, be vigilant for power lines that are down or appear damaged. Having direct contact with it can cause serious injury and even death.

Severe storms can cause serious health and electrical risks. Calling in a qualified level 2 technician can prevent electrocution, electrical shortages and electrical fires from happening.

If you are experiencing loss of power or have trouble turning circuit breakers back on after a storm, contact us to have it assessed and repaired as soon as possible.

Frequently asked questions

What are the hazards of an electrical storm?
Several kilometres away, lightning can strike hundreds of metres away and surge through the grid, knocking out electricity and damaging circuits. The build-up of electrical charges can cause serious electrical and safety hazards. Voltage spikes can damage your wiring and electrical components, even if the electricity returns immediately.

Make sure your home electronics are protected by surge protectors to prevent sudden spikes in voltage.
What should I do if I encounter a downed power line?
If you see a downed power line, move as far away from it as possible. Severe storms can cause electrical and safety hazards such as electrocution, burns and cardiac arrest. Your body can be a conduit for electricity to move from a high voltage zone to a low voltage zone.

If you notice any safety issue or faulty wirings, it’s best to call one of our Level 2 ASP electricians to ensure your property is safe and comply with current Australian Regulations for Electrical Safety.

Have to say it's rare to come across any companies such as selectrical services these days. Their custom service is excellent and backed with prompt service. They would text you to inform when their electrician would arrive. When they promise something, they would keep their promise. We had really good experience having them to carry out electrical work.
