Al’s plumbing repairs or replaces gas lines throughout your home. As a Safety Precaution, we give the following advice if you suspect you have a gas leak in your home.
What To Do If You Suspect A Natural Gas Leak
If you smell natural gas (rotten egg odor) or see signs of a leak:
- Remain calm
- LEAVE THE HOME and Call 911 from a safe distance.
- DO NOT attempt to secure or stop the leak
- DO NOT light a match, candle, or cigarette
- DO NOT turn electrical appliances or lights on or off
- DO NOT operate or use any ignition source, such as a phone, flashlight, or any kind of open flame.
- DO NOT start a vehicle.
AL’S TIP: For about $45, you can purchase a combination Explosive Gas & Carbon Monoxide Detector to protect your home. Al’s Plumbing, Heating and Air Conditioning does not sell these detectors or endorse any specific brand.
The most telling sign of a natural gas line leak is a rotten egg odor. This odor is added to the natural gas so it can be detected in the event of a leak. Natural gas line leaks can be extremely dangerous. The biggest hazard of a gas leak is an explosion.
