A leaking gas line isn’t something to ignore. Natural gas is a great source of energy for water and electricity use in the home, but if you think you may have a leak, you’ll want to take immediate action. If left unattended, a gas leak can cause fire or an explosion. At Westside Plumbing, Inc., our team is fully certified to detect and repair gas leaks, as well as install new gas lines. If you suspect a gas leak in your home because of the smell of rotten eggs or odorous gas, we recommend you do the following.
Get out of the home and call your gas provider to turn off the gas.
Wait until you’re outside to call your gas company, because the use of any electric or electronic devices could cause a spark that could inflame the gas. It’s a good idea to have your gas company’s number in your phone contacts already, so you’re not rushing around rifling through papers or looking up the contact info online. Leave the door and some windows open if possible, to help disperse the gas.
Call Westside Plumbling to repair the gas line.
