Rodents in the rafters
As autumn’s chill sets in rodents start looking for a winter refuge. Your roof space offers the perfect home for these destructive little critters, who don’t mind the odd chew on your electrical cabling.
Our Sharpe Services technicians regularly uncover evidence of rodent damage that has gone largely unnoticed by homeowners.
Occupants may have ignored intermittent tripping of a circuit breaker, or occasional flickering of their house lights. But these are symptoms of potentially dangerous issues that could involve electrocution or a house fire.
How up-to-date is your switchboard? Is it capable of protecting you from the risks that chewed-up cabling in the roof space poses?
Some people are so wary of electricity that they don’t have the courage to open a switchboard door to see what’s inside. If it’s working OK, just leave it alone is the attitude.
Switchboard standards have changed over the past decade but many properties still have outdated safety devices that don’t protect adequately against electrocution.
Not only that, this time of year it’s not uncommon for rainwater to enter a switchboard and stay there for months. Everyone knows water and electricity doesn’t mix!
The simple solution is to get your switchboard checked and tested by one of our fully-qualified technicians.
While there we will verify your entire wiring system is safe.
Our workers are COVID-19 aware, and are sanitized and up to date with best practice.
If your switchboard needs upgrading the parts required will be supplied at the best quality and reasonably priced because Sharpe is affiliated with the most trusted brands.
For example a simple upgrade with combination safety-switch and circuit-breaker devices is very affordable and ensures peace of mind for your family.
