When to Call for Gas Line Leak Repairs
Anytime combustible gas leaks into your home, you have every right to be scared and concerned. However, it is important to know that the ‘rotten egg’ smell of natural gas isn’t always present if there is a leak. In fact, natural gas is actually odourless and the smelly additive is only there to allow for detection. Here are a few other signs you may need to call for a gas line leak repair:
- Dry spots in an otherwise green, moist yard
- Dead houseplants or patches of grass
- Hissing sound near pipes with or without a fine white dust
- Air bubbles in ponds, ditches, or puddles
If you suspect there is a gas leak in or around your home, it’s better to call and be safe than not and be sorry. Once our contractors arrive at your home, they’ll get to work with our gas pipe leak repair services.
What to Do in the Event of a Gas Leak
It’s always important to remember that natural gas is flammable and combustible. This means that the slightest spark, whether visible to the human eye or microscopic can ignite it. In addition to this, natural gas can cause both humans and pets to become physically ill. Generally, the symptoms will be fairly consistent with nausea, dizziness, and fatigue being the most common.
If you believe your home is leaking natural gas and you are experiencing these symptoms, leave the property immediately. Once you are a safe distance, call the gas company and then call ProSolutions Plumbing, Heating & Air Conditioning. It is important for you not to attempt to use your phone while still inside it could cause a static spark–in fact, avoid using any major appliances until the leak is patched and you are told it is safe.
