If you have any gas appliances in your home, you and your family are vulnerable to gas leaks. Natural gas leaking from damaged pipes or faulty appliances can be incredibly harmful to you and your family’s health, and its flammable nature makes it a serious safety hazard. Regardless of where a gas leak comes from, it’s important to have measures in place to detect gas leaks fast so you can keep your home and family safe.
Count on Hawaii Drain Pros for all of your gas leak detection needs. Our gas plumbers can help you set up detection measures and locate the source of suspected gas leaks in your home.
There are several methods to detect natural gas leaks in your home, and the best way to stay safe is to know as many as possible. If you use natural gas in your home, having carbon monoxide detectors is part of the building code – they can and have saved lives by detecting lethal carbon monoxide, which is odorless and colorless. Explosive gas detectors or hybrid carbon monoxide and explosive gas detectors are also common safety measures.
In addition to installing detectors in your home, it’s important to know the signs of a gas leak, both around your home and in yourself. Should your gas leak detectors fail, knowing what to look for could save your life.
The same symptoms are also found in pets. All of these signs could indicate the presence of gas or carbon monoxide in your home and should be taken very seriously.
If you notice any signs or symptoms of a gas leak or carbon monoxide in your home, exit the building immediately, opening windows and doors as you go. Do not turn any electronic devices or fixtures – lights, appliances, TVs, etc. – on or off, as a single spark could ignite natural gas. If you know where your gas meter is located and know how to turn it off, do so.
Once everyone in the building is safely evacuated, call 911 and your gas company for assistance. Be sure to seek medical care if you or anyone else is showing signs of natural gas or carbon monoxide exposure. When everyone is safe and the gas in your home is turned off, call on the Hawaii Drain Pros for gas leak repair services.
