Is It Time for Our Gas Lines Repair and Replacement Services?

Gas leaks must always be treated with the utmost seriousness. Propane and natural gas are extremely flammable. If enough of it is exposed to a flame or even a spark, the result could be an explosion that destroys your home and other property. It could easily be fatal to you and your family, too.

Unfortunately, it’s not always obvious when a gas leak starts.

Here are three telltale signs that you need our New Jersey gas lines repair and replacement services right away.

1. You Hear a Hissing Sound

If you hear a hissing sound that you can’t find the source of, it could be a pipe behind your oven or another appliance. When gas escapes, it often makes a hissing sound as the opening usually isn’t very wide.

2. You Smell Rotten Eggs

Natural gas doesn’t actually have an odor, which is what makes it so dangerous. The sulfur-smell we associate with it is added so people will be able to identify its presence before it’s too late. If you smell the overwhelming scent of rotten eggs – it won’t be subtle – gas is most likely escaping somewhere.

3. Your Plants Are Dying Inexplicably

If the vegetation in and/or around your home is dying and nothing you do seems to help, it’s possible that exposure to natural gas is responsible.

4 Ways a Gas Line Can Become Damaged

It might also help to understand how your gas line may have become damaged in the first place. Here are the four most common reasons:

1. Old Age

Your gas lines are designed for durability, but they won’t last forever. If the following reasons don’t apply, the reason for your gas leak could simply be that the line is too old. In this case, we’ll usually replace other lines, as well, just to avoid the problem happening again in the near future.

2. Soil Movement

If the soil your gas line is in has recently been compacted or otherwise moved, that could have been enough to break it.

3. Nearby Digging

Digging should never be done until the gas lines for a home have been identified, so they can be avoided. If someone has been irresponsibly digging near your home, that could have caused the aforementioned soil movement that broke your gas line.

4. Electrolysis

This term refers to chemical decomposition caused by an electric current passing through a solution that contains ions. This chemical decomposition can break through your line, releasing the gas.
