Gas Leaks – Dangers and How They Are Detected
A gas line leak can happen either inside or outside of your home. Gas leaks are uncommon, however, any kind of gas leak poses a significant risk of explosion or illness to you and your family if it goes undetected and you are exposed to breathing in the gas for too long. Natural gas has a distinct smell that has been added to it specifically as a warning to us, so that we know if there is a leak or we are in danger of being exposed to it.

Gas Leak Causes and Prevention
Gas leaks can be caused by construction and digging that hits a gas line either inside or outside of your home. As a precaution, you should contact your local gas and utility company prior to commencing any construction or landscaping work in or around your home. This way, any gas lines can be clearly marked and identified to avoid any accidents. Many gas leaks can be avoided with regular gas line inspections and by having only licensed professionals install gas lines into your home and on your property.
What to Do In the Case Of a Gas Leak
The first sign of a gas leak would likely be its distinct odor. If this happens, you must shut off the gas valves in your home immediately, if you know where they are and can do so safely. Next, you want to ensure that everyone gets out of the house and to a safe distance and call 911. It is very important that no one smokes or has any kind of open flame in the vicinity of a potential gas leak as an explosion could occur. Do not attempt to turn on any electrical appliances, simply leave the home, get to safety and call for help.
