Your Call for a Gas Leak
Gas leaks are extremely scary. Without being able to visually see a gas leak, they can go undetected for a long time if you aren't vigilant. While you may think your first call should be to a gas company, you should call a plumber instead that specializes in gas leaks. A-Total Plumbing is here to assist with your home's gas leaks to make sure you and your family are safe. We are available 24/7 to provide you with a long-lasting solution and peace of mind.
How to know if
your plumbing needs repair
The best way to notice a gas leak is through the odor. Natural gas is odorless, so companies add a sulfur "rotten egg" smell to allow people to notice a leak. If you do suspect a gas leak, call 911 or your local gas company to shut off the gas. However, to repair the gas leak you will need a plumber.
Our plumbers are trained and certified to handle gas lines and pipes, as well as regulations of the international fuel gas code. A-Total Plumbing is knowledgeable and experienced in handling gas leaks to make sure your home is gas leak free.
Tips / Troubleshooting:
Causes of Gas Leaks
Typically the cause is rust & corrosion on pipes or failed sealants & joints. As the gas pipes age, the sealants can deteriorate, allowing leaks to happen. Also as standards for gas piping develop over time, old gas piping needs to be replaced to be safer and more reliable.
Should You Try To Fix A Gas Leak
Never attempt to fix a gas leak on your own! Gas piping should be left to the professionals since gas leaks can be extremely dangerous for you and your family if something is done incorrectly.
How To Prevent Gas Leaks
Since you can't fix gas leaks on your own, you can be proactive and prevent gas leaks from happening in the future by:
- Scheduling routine inspections for your gas lines
- Check for signs of damage, corrosion, breakage, and warping
- Listen for any leaking or hissing noises
- Install a carbon monoxide alarm
- Check for any rotten egg smells
