Got Gas?  What to do when you have a Gas Leak.

If you suspect a gas leak in or around your home, here are steps for what to do.  Natural gas has no odor.  Gas company’s add a chemical to make gas a distinctive odor, which make it smell like rotten eggs.  If you smell this odor it’s an indication you have got gas leaking from a source.gas leak | leaking gas | gas leak repair

Gas Leaks Outside of your home:

  • Leave the area of the gas leak.  You want to distance yourself and your family from the source of the odor.
  • Do not start or move powered equipment.

Plumbers are trained to repair Gas Leaks:

Plumbers are trained and licensed to repair gas leaks inside or outside homes.  Once a leak is detected, a Licensed Plumber will make the necessary repair and double check the entire source to ensure there are no further leaks.  Gas piping is galvanized and requires the proper knowledge to install correctly.  All gas piping joints must be sealed and double checked for security purposes.

If you suspect a gas leak, and would like for a Licensed Plumber to double check your home, call Carter’s My Plumber for an evaluation today at (317) 859-9999.
