Many people put off getting plumbing repairs unless they become absolutely necessary. They listen to the faucet drip and they wait for the bathwater to drain ever so slowly through clogged pipes. While allowing these plumbing problems to continue is an unnecessary nuisance, the likelihood of them causing a serious safety hazard to the home’s occupants is slim. But, the expert plumbers at General Plumbing want you to know that if you smell natural gas, the time to get help from your local plumber is NOW. A gas buildup can cause a hazardous, life-threatening explosion. If you have a gas leak in your West Palm Beach home or business call us right away.
How do I know if I have a gas leak in my West Palm Beach home?
Though natural gas is naturally odorless, a rotten egg scent has been added to it. If you have a gas leak in your home you will likely notice this unpleasant odor. If the plumbing in your home is old or damaged, you should consider getting gas leak testing from your local plumbing company even if you don’t smell the odor.
What should I do if I smell a gas leak in my West Palm Beach home?
