Gas Leak Detection for Your Safety

Gas leaks can be extremely dangerous, posing risks to your health and safety, as well as potentially causing fires or explosions. Early gas leak detection is crucial to protect your family and property. At Eastside Plumbing, we offer comprehensive gas leak detection services to quickly and accurately locate gas leaks in your home. 

Understanding the safety risks associated with gas leaks is essential. Exposure to gas leaks can cause headaches, dizziness, nausea, and even respiratory issues or unconsciousness in severe cases. Gas leaks also increase the risk of fires and explosions due to the flammable nature of natural gas and propane. 

If you suspect a gas leak, it’s important to act quickly and calmly. First, evacuate everyone from the affected area, making sure not to use any electrical devices, light switches, or even mobile phones, as these can cause a spark and ignite the gas. Open doors and windows to ventilate the area, but only if it is safe to do so. Next, turn off your gas supply at the meter or propane tank, if you can access it safely. 

Once you’ve taken these initial safety measures, contact Eastside Plumbing immediately to schedule a professional gas leak detection service. Our team will arrive promptly, assess the situation, and locate the source of the leak using our detection equipment. We’ll then provide the necessary repairs to ensure your gas system is safe and fully operational.

If you suspect a leak, it’s best to call a professional like Eastside Plumbing and Gasfitting to diagnose and repair the issue. 

What is the typical cost for leak detection and repair services?

The cost of leak detection and repair services can vary depending on the complexity and location of the leak, as well as the extent of any resulting damage. Eastside Plumbing offers competitive pricing and will provide you with a detailed estimate after evaluating your specific situation.

Eastside Plumbing understands the urgency of leak emergencies and offers a prompt response to such situations. Our team is available 24/7 to provide fast, efficient service, helping to limit damage and restore the safety of your home or business. 

What should I do if I smell gas in my home?

If you suspect a gas leak, evacuate everyone from the area immediately. Do not use electrical devices, light switches, or mobile phones, as they can ignite the gas. Open doors and windows if it’s safe to do so, and turn off the gas supply at the meter or propane tank if you can access it safely. Contact Eastside Plumbing to schedule a professional gas leak detection and repair service.

We couldn’t be more pleased with our initial experience and the service provided by Eastside Plumbing and Gasfitting over the last week. Had two emergencies in one week at busy times of day (4pm one day), gave them a try, and was able to rely on them to promptly attend, provide an extremely professional service, and at a reasonable price. The follow-up report and customer service are excellent; on each occasion, we received photos of the problem as well as a report. They don’t just talk the talk when it comes to service. I will definitely use them again.
