Gas Leaks: Trusting Experts To Avert Danger
Gas leaks are one of the most dangerous threats to your home and your family. Gas leaks can have a sulfuric smell, almost like rotten eggs or a skunk. Gas leaks may also have no smell at all, so knowing the proper signs is key.
They can come from a variety of different sources, but you should always make sure to call an expert immediately when you notice gas. In this brief article, we’ll discuss the sources, signs, and solutions of gas leaks in your home.
Sources of Gas Leaks
The two main kinds of gas in your home besides air are carbon monoxide and natural gas. These gases typically come from poorly-fitted or performing appliances like boilers and cookers. A running car in a closed garage can also fill your home with carbon monoxide, so it’s important to stay vigilant to all possible sources of gas leaks.
Signs Of A Gas Leak
A gas leak will have certain signs that you can recognize and act on. The most obvious signs are physical damage to a gas pipe or a hissing sound, which indicates there isn’t a full seal on the pipe. Less obvious signs may be bubbles in water, dying plants, and rotten smells permeating throughout the house.
