NOTE: IF YOU SMELL GAS AT YOUR HOME OR OFFICE, TURN OFF YOUR GAS SUPPLY AND CALL YOUR LOCAL GAS COMPANY IMMEDIATELY!
Natural gas powers many of the appliances in our homes, such as stoves, water heaters, and barbecue grills. The gas is safe to use as long as all of the components of the gas system are in good condition, and everything is working properly. Unfortunately, as time goes by and appliances age, the seals can corrode and create gas leaks. At Daniel Cordova Plumbing, we are ready to help you with all of your gas line problems. Our technicians provide expert gas line installations and repairs in San Dimas and surrounding areas in Southern California. We also help residents track down gas leaks for immediate repair, so you and your family can return to a safe home.
What are Signs of a Gas Leak?
In its natural state, the gas supplied to your home is odorless and colorless. However, a chemical called mercaptan is inserted into your gas supply to help alert you to leaks. When gas leaks into your home, you will smell sulfur, or rotten eggs, which is released by the chemical.
Other signs of a gas leak include a hissing or whistling sound coming from the damaged area of your gas line, often near your appliance. Another sign is dying plants in your yard, near an area where other plants seem to be growing without a problem.
You should also keep an eye out for any unusual soil movement, or exposed pipes, especially after an earthquake has occurred. These could signal a problem with your gas line.
How Can You Prevent Gas Leaks?
Speaking of earthquakes, have you considered installing an earthquake shut off valve? These add an extra layer of safety and peace of mind. When an earthquake occurs, the emergency shut off valves will turn off your gas line to prevent any leaking that can result from gas line damage due to the shifting ground.
Our technicians will be happy to install an earthquake shut off valve in your home.
Let Daniel Cordova Plumbing take care of your gas line problems for you. With upfront rates and 100% satisfaction guarantee, you can rest assured that you will receive top-rate, long term solutions.
