HomeGas Leak Repairs

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?

FIRST, WATCH OUT FOR THE FOLLOWING TELL-TALE SIGNS:

A horrible odour that smells like rotten cabbage or eggs, dirty socks, or sulphur—this is mercaptan, a harmless but foul-smelling gas added to colourless, odourless natural gas to aid detection.
Hissing or whistling sounds from the gas pipes.
A weak pilot light flame.
Damage to the gas meter or pipe.
Dying plants.
Sudden onset of dizziness, nausea, headaches, or breathing difficulties.

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.
