How Can You Tell If You Have a Gas Leak?
The signs of a gas leak are relatively easy to identify, as long as you know where to look:
The smell of rotten eggs
Natural gas is odorless, but trace amounts of mercaptan are added to the natural gas to make it smell like rotten eggs or sulfur, so you can quickly identify a leak.
You can hear hissing sounds
If your gas line is leaking, you will likely be able to hear a faint hissing sound close to the source of the leak.
The grass or plants in your yard are dying
If all of the vegetation in your yard is dying in a particular area despite all your best efforts, then the cause may be a damaged gas line nearby which is leaking near your plants.
How are Gas Leaks Caused?
Gas leaks are most often caused by external factors affecting the pipes, such as extreme weather and exposure to the elements, or by homeowner damage, such as ruptured lines caused by landscaping and renovations.
What to Do If You Have a Gas Leak
If you are experiencing a gas leak, leave your home as quickly as possible and contact your gas company to report it. Then, call a specialist from Peterson Plumbing, Heating and Cooling for immediate assistance in repairing the broken section of pipe.
Do not do any of the following:

- Turn on or plug in any electronics, or any items which could create a spark
- Start your car if you have it parked close to your house
- Turn on any lights or appliances
- Use a lighter or an open flame
