Gas Leak Services in Toronto
A gas leak is one of the most dangerous problems to occur in any home, and if you suspect you have one, the first thing you should do is call a qualified plumber. Gas lines provide an uninterrupted supply of gas to your hot water heater, furnace, dryer, stove-top and in some cases, a fireplace. To keep your family safe, proper maintenance is of vital importance. A gas leak can cause a fire, explosion or carbon monoxide poisoning and for that reason, we don’t recommend homeowners work with gas lines as a DIY project.
It is important to use a licensed technician for any work related to gas lines.
Gas leaks are usually caused by faulty or poorly fitted appliances that haven’t been properly maintained – the gas escapes from the hose that leads into the appliance.
At Leaside Plumbing, we have both the expertise and the equipment to fix any gas leak problem.
How To Deal With A Gas Leak
If you smell rotten eggs in your home, you may likely have a dangerous gas leak.
Follow these emergency procedures:
- Turn off the gas supply at the meter.
- Open all the windows and doors in order to get fresh air circulating through the home.
- Avoid using any light switches, or anything electronic, including your cell phone.
- Do not smoke or use matches.
- Leave your home if any of the windows are locked.
- Call a licensed plumber – Leaside Plumbing is available 24/7 for any emergency.
We offer emergency plumbing services as follows:
Gas Leak Test
Gas leak testing is important preventative maintenance. Air is pumped into the entire gas systems to ensure there are no leaks or faulty lines. Repeated tests are performed to ensure your home is safe, and we fully test and tag new piping systems.
Gas Leak Detection
The first line of defense to identify the source of the problem and we have the right equipment to detect a leak (or faulty line). Not only do we isolate the location of a leak, we will check all the appliance fittings to make sure no other problems exist. You can count on Leaside Plumbing to keep your home safe.
