Does your gas line need repairs?
The most obvious sign of a gas leak is when visible damage is seen on a gas line. Many times, damage of this nature can go unnoticed. Natural disasters can be a common cause for significant gas line damage. However, even if the damage to the gas line is minimal or minor, it can later develop into a full-fledged hazard for the occupants of the household.
For the purpose of safety precautions, it is in the homeowner’s best interest to contact Plumbing Brothers & Rooter for a routine inspection. A natural gas line or pipe that is leaking or damaged may trigger the outside dirt to blow or bubble up under the ground. There is also the case of outdoor plants browning or dying because of poisonous gas that is being seeped into the vegetation.
Lastly, an open flame will ignite if there is a nearby source of natural gas. Our plumbing contractors at Plumbing Brothers & Rooter can inspect the gas line to detect if there is a loose connection on a fitting, a faulty seal, or a cracked pipe.
How to determine if you are experiencing a gas leak?
Since natural gas is odorless, the gas company adds a scent to the gas so that a leak can be determined. Often a leaking line will let out a hissing sound indicating a gas leak. There are also physical signs that can signal a gas leak including headache, nausea, dizziness, and fatigue.
What should you do in the event you have one?
If at any point, you smell rotten eggs, experience the physical symptoms that are associated with the toxins that natural emits, or hear a hissing sound coming from a nearby pipe, you should exit the house immediately and contact Plumbing Brothers & Rooter for a complete inspection.
Vehicles should not be started as the fumes from the exhaust pipe could ignite the leaking gas. Homeowners should avoid smoking or any kind of open flames and should not attempt to shut off the gas supply or locate the source of a leak. Shutting off the gas supply can damage appliances or pipes and could even cause a further safety risk such as an explosion.
