Think You Have a Gas Leak in Your Home?
- Sulfur or rotten egg smell
If you notice a strange sulfuric smell in your home, it could mean you are experiencing a gas leak. While gas is colorless, it does have a strong and distinct smell that is hard to miss.
- Hissing sound
A hissing sound near gas lines can be one of the more obvious signs of a leak. If you hear a hissing sound in combination with any of the other signs of gas leaks, proceed with extreme caution.
- Dead grass or plants in your yard
Noticing a patch of dead grass or plants around an area where you know there is a gas pipe can be a sign of the gas leaking up through the ground and killing your plants.
