Gas Leaks & Detection Services in the Southwest
Detecting Gas Leaks in Your Home
The gas used to power homes all across the country is known as “natural gas.” In its most basic form, natural gas is odorless, colorless and safe. If you’ve ever had a gas leak in your home (or if you’ve simply left the stove on) you more-than-likely have detected the smell of rotten eggs. A harmless chemical called mercaptan is added to natural gas in order to give it that distinct smell. As soon as you smell rotten eggs in your home, you should become cautious since it may signal a gas leak. Remember to avoid turning on any lights as this may cause the gas to ignite. Open as many windows as possible and let your home air out for a few hours. Contact Rocky’s Plumbing if the issue persists.
There are other more subtle signs of gas leaks. If you’ve noticed that your gas bill is getting higher and higher, a gas leak may be to blame. Gas leaks also affect the senses so if you or your family have started to feel dizzy for seemingly no reason at all, it may be due to a gas leak. These types of leaks require maintenance as soon as possible in order to avoid any negative outcomes in the future.
