Gas Line Repair
When it comes to natural gas line repair in Springfield Missouri, it is extremely important to hire a company you can trust. Gas line repairs should only be made by a professional company who are competent and highly trained in gas line safety. At United Plumbing, your safety is our top priority. Our technicians are expertly trained to handle any of your gas line repair needs effectively and efficiently.
So how do you know if you have a gas line that needs repaired? Use your senses. Sight, smell, and hearing to be exact. If you are experiencing any of the following signs, get out of the house immediately and take action. It’s better to take the proper precautions, than to regret not taking them.
Sight – If you notice soil moving or bubbling in puddles in the ground located just above an underground gas line, contact your local gas provider immediately to turn off your natural gas and then contact us for diagnostics and repair.
Smell – Did you know that gas in its natural state is actually odorless? For easy detection, a harmless chemical is added to the natural gas that fuels your home. This chemical is called mercaptan which gives off the distinctive “natural gas odor” that most people describe as smelling like rotten eggs or a hydrogen sulfide type odor. That chemical smells bad for a good reason – to alert you in case of a gas leak. If you ever notice this smell, it’s time to take action.
Hearing – Occasionally when there is a gas leak, you may hear a hissing or blowing type sound. If you ever hear this inside, under, or outside of your home and you believe it may be coming from a natural gas line, don’t hesitate to get out of your home and alert your local gas provider.
If you have any reason at all to believe that your natural gas piping system or a gas line is damaged or compromised, contact us immediately. Natural gas leaks are very serious and can put the safety of you, your family, and your home or business on the line.
