Dangers of Gas Leaks 

Gas is odorless and colorless, however, sulfur is added to it to make it easier to detect. Although they are dangerous for a number of reasons, here are the most common causes for concern:

  • They can cause respiratory problems and if breathed in enough, they can actually incapacitate a person.

  • Natural gas is flammable, so if there is a spark near the leak, it could cause a fire or explosion.

If you suspect a gas leak in your home, turn to a licensed professional plumber to spot and repair it quickly and efficiently to ensure the safety of your home and family.

When Is It Time To Replace the Gas Line?

Older gas lines can be a hazard and should be replaced as soon as possible. If your gas line has been damaged in the past, it needs to be replaced to ensure the integrity of the system.

When our licensed plumbers work on a gas line, they will be able to identify problems on the line that must be solved before the homeowner can come back into the house.

The lines that go to individual appliances such as the stove, oven, and water heater need to be checked to ensure that they are in proper working order and that there is no risk of leaking.

When you get an inspection from us, our technicians will be able to identify any existing or potential problems with any of the gas lines in the home. Sometimes, these problems can be so extensive that an entirely new system will have to be put in place. This ensures that you will be able to avoid any problems that normally come with an aging system.

What Are the Signs of a Gas Leak?

If you smell sulfur (or a rotten egg odor) in the house, you can be almost certain that gas is leaking from somewhere. The smell is a trigger that everyone in the house should be familiar with. Here are a few other signs to watch out for:

  • Dead plant life near the gas line
  • Hissing noise close to a pipeline or gas appliance
  • Excess bubbles in ponds near your home
  • A fire, if the leak has already ignited

Any of these signs should raise a red flag and if you notice them call a licensed professional to perform an inspection and repair the problem immediately.
