The main electrical service cable is the main artery of the electrical system in a property. If the main electrical service cable fails, the property’s electric is compromised.
When a main electrical service cable becomes frayed to the point of strands showing, it is time for a replacement.
A frayed cable allows water to enter live electrical parts and create a hazardous condition or electrical failure.
Typically, by the time Lauterborn Electric is called out to access a service cable, the damage is already done. Once water penetrates your service equipment, it is time for a replacement.
