How to Respond After a Gas Leak
Responding to a Gas Leak
Recovering from a gas leak can be a stressful and nerve-wracking experience. Gas leaks are serious and need to be addressed right away by qualified professionals.
Hopefully, if you’ve had a gas leak, it’s been addressed by first responders and your gas company. The first thing you should do if you suspect your gas line is leaking is evacuate your home and then call 911. Don’t call from inside the house.
We’re looking at what to do after the threat has been taken care of and you assess what went wrong. You may need repairs to your gas line or appliances in order for your home to be safe and functional.
Once the Threat is Addressed
Once the proper authorities have turned off the gas and have neutralized the leak, it’s time to get your gas line repaired. Those same authorities will also let you know when the home is safe to reenter.
Contact your local plumbing experts (ones that you trust) to get this job done quickly and safely. Especially if your home is heated with natural gas, you will need prompt repair in order to be comfortable and protect your home. Professionals will also be able to tell you possible reasons why the line broke, and even offer a replacement if needed.
Once everything is fixed, make sure your carbon monoxide detectors and smoke detectors are working and have new batteries. And be aware of the signs of a gas leak in case one occurs in the future.
