Got an odor in the house similar to that of a rotten egg? Hearing a hissing or blowing sound? Is there visible dust blowing from a hole in the ground? Dead or dying vegetation? If you notice any of these issues, you may be the victim of a gas leak and should contact a local Plumber immediately. In the way of prevention, the most important step to preventing a potential natural gas disaster is proper installation. It is crucial to hire a licensed, reputable plumber. Our Lewisville Plumbing Company is not only a member of the PHCC (Plumbing, Heating, and Cooling Contractors) and the QSC (Quality Service Contractors), but the BBB (Better Business Bureau) as well. If you suspect a natural gas leak, it’s extremely important to know what to do. First, make sure not to use any electrical devices like light switches, appliances, or even telephones; these could spark, and potentially ignite, the gas. Also, do not use lighters or anything that has an open flame. Do not try to locate the source of the leaking gas yourself and make sure not to try to shut off gas valves or gas-utilizing appliances.
