A message from the owner of Westridge Electric
“Good electrical connections, especially grounding, are what keep you safe from shock and electrocution.
If your equipment has gotten wet and has been re-energized it may be possible that these connections are compromised and will continue to deteriorate further with time and usage. They should be repaired for your safety.”
Important information for Flood victims:
Always remember that water and electricity do not mix! It is not possible for us to service everyone, therefore, make sure that any devices that were underwater do not get energized when your power is restored.
For your own safety, please ensure that you use competent, certified electricians to help you.
We understand this is a very hard and trying time for everyone affected by the floods. As Foothills residents now start to re-enter their homes we want to make sure that your family’s homes are electrically safe. Westridge Electric has been inundated with phone calls for inspections, and while we try to get around to as many people as we can, we ask for your patience as we inspect your homes. To make the process flow more smoothly for you and us we ask that you please do the following before calling:
If water reached your outlets but not your panel:
1. Please clear it of debris and belongings so that our techs can get access to all your basement circuitry.
2. Please remove as much mud and silt as possible - the longer our tech's are in your home, the longer other people are waiting for our services.
Due to the amount of calls we have received we will try and accommodate you as quickly and efficiently as possible. Please call us and we will add you to our list - we just ask that you are patient and we will get to you as quickly as we can. We are unable to give you a scheduled time or date but if you are on our list then we will get around to you.
If water reached your electrical panel:
3. If your panel has received water damage you WILL require a Panel change out, please make sure your basement is up to the sanitized stage. At this point please call us and we will put you on our list to have your panel changed out - we will be seeing people in the order that the calls came in.
If you have your power back on and require the outlets and/or switches in your basement to be changed - this is what we call a basement restoration and may have to be done in 2 visits. The first visit we will be able to replace all the boxes and vapour barriers and the second visit will be when you have finished your basement, including new drywall and paint. At this point we will return to put the receptacles and switches on. If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to call our number above or click on the link below for further flood related topics. Thank you for your patience through this difficult time.
