Gas leaks are dangerous because of the significant effect they can have on our health. Natural gas is made mainly of methane which pushes oxygen out of enclosed spaces such as your home. Because natural gas is extremely flammable, a gas leak could cause an explosion or fire and damage your home. Gas can make you sick, and could even cause death. A gas leak is a serious issue that should never be ignored.
What is a Gas Leak?
A gas leak can occur due to old, corroded, warped, bent, or ruptured pipes or gas lines. A leak can also happen when an appliance or structural element is old or not working properly and doesn’t burn up the gas completely.
