Gas leaks are probably one of the most dangerous types of leaks to have in a property, being completely invisible to the naked eye. So how does one detect a gas leak?
If you notice the signs above, you can do a simple test for a gas leak: spray soapy water around the area where the gas smell is coming from. Leaks typically occur around the gas pipes or meter. Upon spraying soapy water on the surrounding area, if you see the soapy water bubbling, there’s the location of the leak.
Next, you’ll need to shut off the gas supply by isolating the gas ball valve immediately. Open your windows and doors to ventilate the area and get rid of the gas build-up. Once you have done that, get in touch with us right away.
