Gas leaks can pose a severe health hazard to your family. The danger increases if the leak goes undetected. Because some gases are odorless, your family could be inhaling them for extended periods of time without knowing. Gas leaks are also a major fire hazard and can put your home at risk of complete destruction if you're not careful. That's why it is critical to know the signs of a gas leak and to have a gas line contractor you can trust.

What to Do in the Event of a Gas Leak
If you notice any of the above signs in your home, you may have a gas leak. Open all your windows and doors, evacuate the property, and call for help. If the leak is coming from a pipe outside of your home, leave the area immediately. Once you are a safe distance away from the leak, call the gas pipe contractors at Paul the plumber to request gas pipe leak detection.
DO NOT turn any light switches on or off, ignite any flames, use any electronic devices (including your cell phone), or start your car while in the house, or on the property. Any of these actions could react with the gas in the air and cause an explosion.
