We help commercial site owners in Long Island and Five Boroughs repair any vulnerable lines, while also inspecting your system for signs of leaking.
What Causes Gas Leaks?
There are several factors that contribute to gas leaks. Improper connections between the gas line and appliance is a common problem. If you just added a new water heater, gas stove, or other gas-based appliance to your building, a poor installation job can lead to a gas leak. In some cases, the connection hose can be punctured and cause leaks as well.
What Should You Do If There’s a Leak?
If there is a gas leak in your building, evacuate the property at once. Do not turn off the gas line or use any electronic devices; a single spark can cause a dangerous explosion. Once in a safe area, call your local gas company to report the leak.
What are Signs You Have a Gas Leak?
There are two ways to tell if you have a gas leak. You will either smell it or hear it. If you smell a sudden rotten egg odor, there is likely a leak in your line. If you hear a hissing sound from your gas line, there may be damage in the line causing the leak.
Gas leaks can be subtle, but if you pay attention to the warning signs and take immediate action when a problem occurs in your gas line, you can avoid further damage.
What are Professional Leak Detection Methods?
There are various techniques that help in locating gas leaks. We are able to see the release of gas through visual aids, whether infrared technology or other equipment. These will show the movement of gas and other air based particles, allowing us to detect the gas coming out of the leak.
Carbon monoxide detectors are useful to have as well in your building, especially if you have gas appliances and hardware inside your facility. Carbon monoxide is almost impossible to detect on your own, which is why we recommend installing these detectors for increased safety.
