Gas leaks are a very serious business, so if you notice any of the telltale signs of a leak, then you need to act fast. Keep an eye out for these common signs, so you don’t end up putting yourself in a dangerous situation.
Natural gasses are typically given an odor to allow you to quickly identify a leak. This smell is similar to that of rotten eggs or sulfur. It is important to note that certain gasses don’t give off an odor. That is why it’s essential to install carbon monoxide detectors, which will be able to identify if a leak has occurred.
You may also notice a hissing noise coming from your pipes if the gas is coming from a very tiny hole. When gas escapes from your pipes, the pressure within the lines will go down. This can result in cold pipes, which can lead to the formation of ice or condensation. This may even form on surrounding vegetation or the ground nearby.
As previously stated, gas leaks are a very serious and dangerous matter. If you notice any of the above signs, then you need to act fast. Evacuate the property and get yourself to a safe location away from the leak.
You should avoid using anything that may create a spark, such as using the phone, electrical equipment, or even your car. Creating a spark may cause any gas fumes that are present to ignite, which can be extremely dangerous.
Once you are in a safe location, phone 911 and notify the authorities. You should also speak to your gas provider when you can. This is particularly important if you think the leak main be coming from the main line.
Once you have performed these necessary steps, you should phone a professional plumber who is trained to deal with a gas leak. A technician can then come to your property to find out where the leak is coming from and make the necessary repairs to resolve the issue. Until repairs are complete, you should not re-enter the property.
