Signs of a Gas Leak
The ability to recognize the signs of a gas leak can save your family’s lives. Don’t attempt to repair a gas leak on your own. Leave gas line repair in Fort Worth to a qualified plumber. The signs of a gas leak include:
- Natural gas has no odor of its own, and is the reason an odorant is added providing the sulfuric, rotten egg odor that is its most noticeable sign of a leak.
- Leaking gas is often described as a blowing, hissing, whistling, or roaring sound.
- An outdoor gas leak can cause grass and other vegetation to die. In addition, a gas leak may blow leaves, soil, and other debris into the air.
