Although fairly unlikely, this does happen. Electrical surges happen in the home and can be caused by a variety of things. Some of the main causes include:
- Lightning storms.
- Electrical items being turned on and off quickly (the hairdryer is a common culprit).
- Trees or animals interfering with local power lines.
Electrical surges are particularly dangerous to anything with a microprocessor (so anything). A power overload can permanently damage a mobile phone.
The good thing is that with so-sure, you are totally covered against this - just give our claims team a call.
