Gas Leak Repair and Detection

Gas Leak Repair for Plano, Wylie & the Surrounding Area


Natural gas is a colorless, odorless gas that is found in crude oil deposits or large cracks and fissures in the earth. It can be mined, processed, and burned to create energy to power our homes. In its natural state, natural gas is the cleanest burning fossil fuel; when it burns, it produces mostly carbon dioxide, water vapor, and small amounts of nitrogen oxides.

While natural gas is not dangerous when it’s sealed tightly inside pipes and used correctly, and leaks are rare, it is extremely important to take quick action if you detect a leak. Natural gas is extremely flammable; even a small spark or flame in the area of a leak could cause a fire or explosion. Gas companies add a chemical called mercaptan to finished natural gas to make it easy to detect a leak; mercaptan smells like rotten eggs or skunk spray and will alert you to the presence of natural gas in your home.

If you smell natural gas…

If you smell natural gas (the rotten egg smell) it is extremely important that you immediately leave the area and call 911 or your natural gas service provider. Natural gas can ignite from just a small spark when confined in a small space. All natural gas repairs must be made by a licensed plumber and propane gas repairs require a propane licensed technician.
