Gas leaks are caused by normal wear and tear with the fittings leaking in walls, underground, or below the structure. Gas leak detection is never something that you want to take lightly. A small leak can accumulate and cause an explosion. While this risk is relatively low, gas leak detection and gas leak emergency repairs are never something you should try to fix yourself; instead, call Churchwell Plumbing, the gas leak detection expert. No matter how subtle the gas leak is, our team of gas detection specialists will find it, so you can return to living or working in complete safety.
Signs Of A Gas Leak
Smell – You can most of the time smell natural gas, the odor is similar to sulfur or a rotten egg.
Sound – Hissing, whistling, or roaring sound near a gas appliance or pipeline.
Sight– Discolored or dead vegetation over or near the pipeline.
What to do if you notice these signs:
If you notice any of these above signs, get out of your house immediately and contact your natural gas service provider. They’ll send someone to your home to shut off the gas supply. This is very important; natural gas can ignite when it collects in a confined space. It only takes a small spark to create an explosion! Once your gas has been disconnected call Churchwell Plumbing, your qualified licensed plumbers, to examine and fix your gas leak.
