Dangers of Gas Leaks

Gas is odorless and colorless, however sulfur is added to it to make it easier to detect. Although they are dangerous for a number of reasons, here are the most common causes for concern:

They can cause respiratory problems. Too much exposure can actually cause incapacitation.

 

Natural gas is flammable, so any sort of spark could cause a fire or explosion.

What Are Signs of a Gas Leak?

If you smell sulfur (or a rotten egg odor) in the house, it’s almost certain that there is a gas leak. The smell is a trigger that everyone in the house should be familiar with. Here are a few other signs to watch out for:

Dead plant life near the gas line

 

Hissing noise close to a pipeline or gas appliance

 

Excess bubbles in ponds near your home

 

A fire, if the leak has already ignited

Any of these signs are a red flag, and if you notice them call our licensed professionals for an inspection so that we can repair the problem immediately.
