Understanding Gas Leaks

If you suspect a gas leak, taking the proper steps will be important. Open windows and leave the area immediately. Do not use electronic devices, including cell phones, in the home where the leak may occur. Flames and appliances should be avoided at all costs. Always pay attention to your surroundings and understand when there’s a gas leak and when to seek medical attention.

Signs of a gas leak include:

  • The unpleasant smell of sulfur or rotten eggs
  • Dry patches and plants in the lawn
  • Hissing sounds near a gas line
  • Bubbles in standing water
  • Visible gas line damage such as broken connections, heavy corrosion, etc.

Exposure to gas can be serious. Along with the above indications that gas may be leaking into the property, pay attention to signs and symptoms such as a headache, throat irritation, breathing problems, pale skin, fatigue, and dizziness. If you experience any of these, seek medical attention immediately and consult a plumber about repairing the broken gas line.

Stay Safe from Carbon Monoxide Poisoning

Carbon monoxide is another concern for homeowners. This gas is odorless, tasteless, and colorless, and causes serious problems when exposed. Installing a detector, keeping vents clear, and safely heating the home are some ways to prevent serious complications from carbon monoxide

Symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning include headaches, confusion/dizziness, exhaustion, nausea, and rapid breathing. Since even minutes of exposure can render most people ill, taking precautions is essential to stay safe.
