Skelly Plumbing repairs gas leaks. We can also locate a gas leak in your home, repair a gas pipe, install a gas line and offer gas pipe repair. Also, if you have a gas leak from your water heater we can locate and fix that gas leak as well.
Residential Gas Leaks can occur inside or outside the home and are defined as, “a leak of natural gas from a pipe or other containment, into a living area or any other area where the gas should not be.” A gas leak inside the home is generally easier to detect due to a harmless chemical added to natural gas by the gas company that usually causes the gas to smell like “rotten eggs”. A gas leak outside the home is often harder to detect by smell alone. Some other ways to detect gas leaks outside include: dirt or water blown into the air, dead or dying vegetation near the gas line, surface bubbles in water puddles and ponds, and/or hissing sounds.
If you suspect a gas leak take the following steps to ensure your safety:
- Evacuate the premises immediately
- Call your gas company from a cell phone or neighbor’s phone to inform them.
- Do not light fires, matches or cigarettes, and do not operate electrical appliances, light switches or phones, as these may act as points of ignition.
- Do not re-enter your home until it has been inspected by a professional and deemed safe.
