In addition to being an expensive repair, a gas leak can be highly dangerous. Besides basic hazards to your health, gas leaks can cause explosions and fires that can be deadly. If you suspect a gas leak in your home or place of business, it is vital that you call a professional like the ones at Leon’s Leak Detection.
Signs of a Gas Leak
The most noticeable sign of a gas leak is a foul odour, such as how rotten eggs might smell. Another common sign is a hissing sound from the appliance itself. A third sign of a gas leak is detectable in the burners of your cooking appliances—a red or yellow flame signals a problem. If the leak is outside, you might notice a feeling of air emitting from the ground, bubbling in moist parts of the lawn, or dying plants.
What to Do if You Suspect a Leak
If your home or business is showing signs of a gas leak, the first thing you need to do is to extinguish any open flames and turn off the gas at the source. Open the windows and doors to ease the odour of the gas, and then wait outside for a professional. If you are unable to turn off the gas, skip further steps and get as far away from the building as possible before calling a professional, as gas can ignite and explode with the help of even the smallest spark.
