The use of natural gas to heat buildings and power appliances is common in Northeast Ohio. Everything from stoves and furnaces to generators and boilers depend on the regular flow of gas through pipes in and under your home. When a gas pipe is improperly installed or leaking, it can be more than inconvenient; it can be downright dangerous! Natural gas is colorless and odorless, so utility companies use a strong sulfur odorant in their systems to alert customers of a gas leak. An unnoticed leak that releases chemicals into the air can be extremely hazardous, potentially leading to carbon monoxide poisoning or explosions. Cleveland plumbing company Verne & Ellsworth Hann is the best choice for all of your gas piping installation, repair and testing needs.
The following are telltale signs of a gas leak in your house or on your property:
- A strong gas smell in the home or outside near gas lines
- A hissing sound coming from pipes
- Movement or water bubbling in puddles in the ground above gas lines
- Plant materials over gas lines turning brown
If you suspect that you may have a leak emanating from one of your gas pipes, leave your home immediately! After an emergency safety inspection is performed by the local utility company, you will need to contact a professional right away to solve the underlying problem. Because natural gas and propane are highly flammable materials, you will need the services of a company that adheres to the highest safety standards and has years of experience; in Cleveland and Northeast Ohio, your best choice is Verne & Ellsworth Hann.
