You cannot imagine the number of cables present inside the earth. These cables include gas cables, TV cables, telephone cables etc. If you want to figure out the cables that are going underneath your home and the location of these cables, then you have to hire Underground Services Locating in order to get optimum services.
When you have found out the location of underground power cable, you should mark the region so that everyone can know that under this region there is a network of cables so this area should be handled carefully. When you are digging to find the network of cables, even a small amount of damage could be harmful so, digging should be done carefully and only by experts in the field.
Before trying to solve any problem, you must know the exact location of different problems and there should not be any confusion between several cables. Detecting the problem cable out of several cables is a difficult task. Good underground service locating providers use specialized tools such as ground penetrating radar, scanning tools etc.
These tools can help to detect the problem cable and you will not have to worry about destroying any other power cables. Also specialized tools will save the time and energy required to solve the problem.
