Protecting Cenla Homeowners from Gas Leak Dangers
Gas leaks are dangerous and should only be handled by professionals who have the equipment and know-how to complete safe repairs. As Alexandria plumbing experts, we at Parson’s Plumbing, Heating, and Cooling, LLC are dedicated to keeping our customers safe. The following information can help you make the right choices in the event of a leak.
The following are potential signs of a leak:
- You or your family members have noticed any of the following symptoms after being inside: nausea, headache, irregular breathing, fatigue, or dizziness. A headache is usually the first sign for most people exposed to natural gas.
- You have noticed a smell of rotten eggs. Because natural gas has no color or smell, a special substance called mercaptan is added to give it a distinctive “rotten egg” smell. This can help you detect a leak.
- Plants, grass, and flowers on a specific area of your property are discolored, deteriorating, or dying. Vegetation near a gas leak will become discolored and die, and this is a potential sign of a leak.
- You can hear a hissing sound in your home or on your property. When natural gas escapes from a cracked or broken pipe, it makes a hissing sound. This could be a sign that you have a leak.
