Affordable Gas Leak Detection and Leak Repair Service in Milford CT by Ricks Plumbing

First of all, if you suspect a gas leak, please follow this:

  1. Open doors and windows in your home to get some fresh air flow.
  2. Evacuate yourself and remove any other people or pets from the property.
  3. If it is safe to do so, turn off the gas at the mains tap, usually found near the meter.
  4. Call the gas company, 911, or utility company’s emergency number. (DO NOT make this call from inside the house, as this could potentially ignite the gas.)
  5. Wait outside at a safe distance from the home.

Both Mike and Scott were very professional and instilled confidence . They each took time for explanations to me. Then each took the time to explain what was needed and what they were doing ,via phone, to my brother .They were very polite. I would recommend Rick's plumbing ,because of them.

Finding Hidden Gas Leaks: How can you detect a gas leak in your home?

A gas leak in your home can be extremely dangerous. Natural gas leaks are often left undetected, simply because many do not know the warning signs to look out for. To prevent a large-scale gas leak and explosion from happening in your home or business, you should learn how to detect a gas leak. This is easier said than done, however, as it can be dangerous to stay in a home after a gas leak is evident. One way to detect a gas leak is by checking your appliances. Gas stoves showing orange or red flames even after the stove has been lit can be a sign of a gas leak. A teaspoon of dish detergent mixed with one cup of water applied to wherever the leak is suspected can also show you where the gas leak is coming from. Simply look for bubbles forming! A gas leak detector can also be purchased that do the dirty work for you.

Signs of a Natural Gas Leak

A hissing or whistling sound coming from your appliances and gas lines is a common sign of a gas leak, along with visible damage to a gas line connection. The smell of sulfur is another easy way to detect a gas leak in your home, and even a suddenly dying houseplant can let you know that a gas leak exists. If you suspect a gas leak in your home, take the steps listed above and then call Rick’s Plumbing to fix the problem area!
