What is a power surge? A power surge is a sudden spike in voltage, typically very brief, very strong, and very destructive. The average home today has thousands of dollars worth of electrical items and it only takes a split second for a power surge to destroy them. Power surges destroy items very quickly, like a lightning bolt hitting a power line, or gradually over time, when smaller surges are absorbed by your electronics slowly eating them away. Mister Sparky of Myrtle Beach offers surge protection services that could prevent a disaster from happening inside of your home.
