Is there a hissing noise coming from your pipes? Do you smell an odor similar to rotten eggs? If so, you most likely have a gas leak. Besides being expensive, gas leaks are extremely dangerous.
Oftentimes, they can be easy to detect because of the strong smell, but when gas leaks are small, they can go undetected for weeks at a time leading to hazardous side effects and indoor pollution. It is important to pay attention to the signs such as:
- Smell of Sulfur: If you or your residents have already checked whether the smell was coming from their gas stove and the smell is still persistent, this is a sign you should call your repair company immediately.
- Dying plants: If there is a specific area of your property where the plants’ health has declined rapidly, there may be a gas leak in the area.
- Hissing noise: A hissing noise coming from your pipes is most likely an indication of a gas leak. If you hear this, turn off the system that is supplying the gas line and immediately call a professional company to come examine the lines.
The best way to prevent this from happening, is to schedule regular gas line maintenance and inspections. Our technicians at 1-Hour Drain provide routine inspections, gas line maintenance, and gas line installation to help keep your gas piping system running smoothly and safely.
