Dealing with Gas Line Leaks

A gas line is one of those things that you don’t want to take a chance with. Let me just say up front, if you suspect something is going awry with your gas line, call your Houston plumber right away to get the situation checked out.

Leaking gas can lead to dangerous explosions and asphyxiation. Manufacturers do try to warn you by adding a strong smelling foul (rotten egg) odor to the gas so that homeowners can smell it before it’s too late. If you are smelling this smell, there are some things you do not want to do!

  1. Do NOT turn on any appliances or anything electrical! A tiny spark can mean devastation to your home.
  2. Do NOT try to find where the leak is coming from exactly. Let the professionals do that for you. They have the proper equipment.
  3. Do NOT use any type of open flame such as a lighter or a match.
  4. Do NOT start your vehicle
  5. DO call your local a Benjamin Franklin Plumbing® of Rosenberg plumber immediately once you have safely left the area!
