Natural Gas Leaks
It is very important that you have your natural gas lines tested to make sure they are functioning properly. Natural gas line leaks can be incredibly dangerous for a few reasons. One a leak can cause carbon monoxide poisoning or worse an explosion. If you have a leak or odor in you home, you need a gas line repair.
Natural Gas Line Explosions
When natural gas builds up in a confined area, it becomes very volatile. A gas build up has the potential to explode or make people in the area sick. Gas leaks can help be prevented by regular gas line inspections. If you think you smell a natural gas leak, do not try to locate the leak yourself. Do not turn on or off any electrical devices. Do not smoke or use any open flames. Leave the house and call a professional to inspect your natural gas lines for leaks.
