At The Eco Plumbers, we provide safe and qualified
gas service to residents across Columbus and the surrounding areas of Ohio. Because
natural gas lines can pose many dangers, it is critical that all homeowners
understand the importance of quickly identifying leaks and working with
fully licensed professionals who can address and fix the issue safely.
If you have noticed a gas leak or broken gas pipe in or around your home,
or if you need to repair, replace, or install pipes for propane or natural
gas, safety should be your first priority. In addition to offering 24/7
emergency services for these issues, The Eco Plumbers has also put together
a list of safety precautions and other important things you should know.
Here are a few helpful tips when dealing with gas lines:
Stay safe when you smell gas – If you smell gas in your home, be aware that you should treat
this as an emergency and take all precautions possible. This includes
extinguishing any open flames or candles, opening windows and doors to
allow for ventilation, avoiding the use of light switches or electrical
devices, not lighting matches or cigarettes, and turning off your gas
at the meter as soon as you can. You should not turn the gas back on until
you are sure that it is safe to do so.
Don’t perform gas work on your own – Unless you are a qualified professional, you should never perform
your own gas work or any Do It Yourself projects involving gas lines.
Because there are many hazards that can occur during and after improper
gas work, anyone who legally services gas lines for natural gas or propane
must be properly licensed. Don’t take any chances with gas lines.
Let the proper professionals handle the job for you.
Don’t worry if you don’t know the problem – As long as you have taken precautions to safeguard your home after
smelling gas, don’t worry if you are not able to figure out the
problem or explain the issue to someone. A qualified service person should
be able to determine what the issue is by investigating. Our professionals,
for example, have extensive experience with residential gas lines, where
these lines are commonly located, what appliances they service, and how
leaks or issues can occur. This experience and insight enables us to accurately
identify the underlying problem that resulted in a gas leak. We also have
the experience to test and fix the problem correctly.
Contact a trusted professional – The best thing you can do when you smell gas or need gas service
is to call experienced professionals. Our team at The Eco Plumbers is
fully licensed to perform residential gas work, and we have the experience
to quickly identify issues and the solutions that fix them. All of our
work is done according to gas safety standards, which may not be the case
