Does your gas line need maintenance or repair?
A leak in your home or business’ gas line can be a serious emergency issue. Fortunately, there are several warning signs that you may notice that indicate that your gas line is in need of repair. Pay attention and if you notice any of these signs, call a professional plumber immediately. Gas line work is incredibly dangerous and you do not want to attempt any repairs yourself.
The first sign many people notice is a foul smell in the area. That smell is sulphur, which is intentionally infused into the gas running through your gas lines in order to alarm you if they begin to link. Sulphur smells like rotten eggs and the smell is definitely noticeable.
Another sign could be damage to plants in a specific area. If you see your grass or shrubbery turning brown in a concentrated location, this could mean that they area has been under gas exposure for some time. Try watering your plants. If you see bubbling on the grass, then there is a leak in the underground line.
You should also pay attention to the appliances in your home that run off your gas lines. If they are making unusual sounds, such as clanging, that could be a sign of gas leaking. If they aren’t working, don’t assume there is a problem with them. It may be that gas is not getting to the appliances because of a leak somewhere. Turn off all your appliances if you notice these signs. Then, check your home or business’s gas meter. If it is still moving with all your appliances shut down, then there is a good chance of a leak somewhere.
Gas line leaks can cause serious injury or death to you and your loved ones. If you notice any of these signs, call a reputable plumber immediately. Gas line repair work is not something that you can do by yourself and it is not something that can wait.
