Gas Line Repair Services
Gas lines are vital to many households. Natural gas is often used to power appliances such as water heaters, stoves, furnaces, and pool heaters. However, your gas line also carries naturally volatile elements that can be dangerous if not handled accurately. Continuous use, improper installation, environmental factors, and more can cause pipes to rust, break, or crack. When the pipes leak the results can be very serious - sometimes, even fatal.
A gas leak is an emergency situation that requires immediate attention. Leaks are dangerous and need to be fixed by highly trained professionals. This is not a situation you can take care of on your own! DB’s Plumbing & Drain® can help. We are your Prince William and Fairfax County gas leak detection and gas line repair experts. We are ready and available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week for emergency service.
Know the Signs of a Gas Leak
We have all heard of carbon monoxide poisoning, but how exactly does that happen? Carbon monoxide poisoning is the result of an undetected slow leak of natural gases. Other than the personal dangers to your family, gas leaks can make the air in your home significantly more flammable, leaving your home subject to fire and explosions. Natural gas is colorless and odorless, but an odor is added to make it easier to detect gas leaks. The presence of a rotten egg smell is an indication of a potential gas leak.
Heed and Recognize the Signs
- Dizziness or lightheadedness
- Increased gas bills
- Nausea or headaches
- Sulfur or rotten eggs smell
Any of the above listed concerns could be indicative of a gas leak especially if they have a sudden onset and are not readily attributed to another cause.
Gas Leaks Can Occur at the Meter or Anywhere Along the Line
Other signs of a gas leak include:
- A whistling or hissing sound near a gas appliance or pipeline
- Dead/discolored vegetation near a pipeline
- Persistent bubbles in wet areas
