Gas leak detection is obviously necessary so whatever is causing the problem can be fixed. We have sophisticated equipment we use to find the source of a leak fast so your gas pipe repair can take place as soon as possible. If you ever notice the “rotten egg” smell which is associated with a gas leak, take the following steps:
- Get out of your home or office immediately and tell anyone else inside to leave as well. Put as much distance between yourself and the structure as possible. Either go down the road or across the street.
- Make sure you leave the doors open so proper ventilation can take place.
- Don’t plug or unplug any sort of electrical device before you leave, and don’t touch any light switches. Doing so could cause a spark which could ignite any gas which may be leaking.
- Immediately call the company that provides your gas so they can turn off the supply, and then call a professional to perform gas leak detection and repair.
Gas Leak Repair Service
The gas you use in your home starts of course, at the gas meter. Then it flows through many different types of pipes through your home, supplying appliances such as furnaces and water heaters. Because your home contains a complex system of different kinds of valves, fittings and more there are several places where a problem can occur which will make gas leak repair necessary.
Once our technician arrives at your home to perform your gas pipe repair it’s very likely the faulty pipes, valves or fittings will need to be replaced. In some instances however, valves and pipes may only need to be adjusted. Whatever gas pipe repair is appropriate we will handle it as quickly as possible so your home or business is once again as safe as possible.
