Telltale Signs of a Gas Leak

Home / Telltale Signs of a Gas Leak

Schedule A Service Call

No one wants to deal with any kind of leak in their home, especially a gas leak. However, if you notice any of the following warning signs, you need to call a professional plumber right away as it is dangerous for your family or business. Allstar Plumbing is a top-rated plumber in Lake Charles, LA, and is here for you in the event of a gas leak day and night.

The Smell of Sulfur

Natural gas and propane have a chemical called Mercaptan added to them because these two gases are actually odorless. This chemical gives off an unpleasant and noticeable smell of sulfur or rotten eggs. Once you notice foul odors permeating your home, evacuate the premises immediately and call for emergency plumbing repair.

Hissing Sounds

Hissing sounds indicate a gas line that has been punctured or, in some other way, damaged. If you can, turn off the gas supply immediately and have your family leave the premises. Then, have a reputable plumbing company come and repair your gas line.

Health Symptoms

Gas leaks are not always obvious. Sometimes, they can be the result of a faulty appliance. Gas leaks can be deadly, so it is important to stay aware. Some health symptoms that can be caused by a gas leak include:

  • Trouble breathing
  • Nausea
  • Headache
  • Dizziness
  • Eye and throat irritation
