A Gas Leak Is a Serious Matter
A gas leak should never be left to its own devices, as it can become an extremely serious matter very quickly. Even a very small gas leak can pose serious health risks, in addition to safety hazards. Natural gas, when inhaled, is toxic – even in small amounts. The larger the leak, the more serious the symptoms, ranging from headaches and nausea to chest pains, vision problems, and more. Natural gas leaks also have the potential to turn into carbon monoxide, which can be deadly. In addition to health issues, a gas leak can result in a fire or explosion within your home.
What To Do If You Suspect a Gas Leak
If you suspect a gas leak in your home, the most important thing to do is make sure all people and pets are removed from the house quickly. If it is safe to do so, you can also turn off your gas line and stove (if applicable) and open as many doors and windows as you can. Once you have safely evacuated from the home, call 911 right away to alert them of the leak. DO NOT use your cell phone inside the home or turn on any lights, as this can ignite the gas. Once 911 has been called and necessary actions have been taken to ensure your safety and the safety of those who live in the home, call Waldman Plumbing. We have years of experience in inspecting homes after gas leaks so you can avoid the issue in the future.
