Dirty electrical panels

Recommended Posts

I think you should comment on any electrical equipment that dirty, but I wouldn't make a really big deal out of it. I'd suggest having an electrician vacuum or blow it out the first time they had one over for some reason. Any smart, handy guy could do it himself, but suggesting that would be....risky.

And it's a Zinzco, of course.

I wouldn't. If the innards are so dirty that I can't see what I need to see, I use a can of compressed air to blow it out.

There's really no implication to that kind of dirt.

Now if it were mouse nesting material or something that could catch fire I'd mention it.
