How to Spot a Gas Leak in Your Parrish Home

Natural_Gas.jpg  

Winter is upon us, and now more than ever it’s important to be aware of the possibility of gas leaks. Heaters aren’t used over the summer months, and lines that are damaged in winter storm can be a source of dangerous gas leaks in your Parrish home.

Every eight minutes an underground utility is damaged in America. The most frequently damaged utilities are gas lines. Take the time to consider the following tips that were shared by Pacific Gas & Electric in California.

Hot to Spot a Gas Leak

  1. Smell: Did you know that natural gas is mixed with a sulfuric “rotten egg” smell so that small amounts of gas can be identified and steps can be taken to prevent serious health issues?
  2. Sound: If you hear hissing, roaring, or whistling noises coming from your gas appliances or underground, this may be an indication of a gas leak.
  3. Sight: Gas is invisible, but its effects aren’t. Bubbling water in ponds and creeks, spraying dirt, or vegetation that dies in a certain spot can point to a gas leak.

Here’s what to do if you suspect a gas leak:

  1. Move upwind from where the suspected leak is and alert others.
  2. Do not use anything that could ignite the gas. Examples are cell phones, matches, doorbells, garage door openers, vehicles, or electric switches.
  3. Call 911 immediately. They will alert the fire and police departments.

Do you plan to dig in an area where there may be gas lines? Contact your utility company before digging. Most utility companies have free services to help you locate gas lines and will give “safe digging” tips.
