It goes without saying that gas leaks, whether LPG or natural gas, are a serious and potentially dangerous problem. The associated risks with leaking gas include potential negative health side effects and the possibility of fire or an explosion.
Often your nose will react to natural gas first with the familiar odour of sulphur or rotten eggs. When you smell gas, it’s an immediate warning sign that you should always acknowledge for your safety.
However, finding gas leaks can often be much more challenging. That’s why you’ll need the help of a professional gas fitter from Plumber Near Me.

What are the Signs of a Natural Gas Leak?
Plumber Near Me is available for all of your gas plumbing services. However, unless you call us for a routine gas fitting check-up, you will most likely discover the first sign of a leak.
Therefore, it’s beneficial for you to know what gas leaks look, smell or sound like. The most common warning sign is a strong smell, often described as rotten cabbage or eggs, dirty socks or sulphur. This comes from a harmless gas called mercaptan that gets added to odourless natural gas before it reaches your gas pipes.
Other warning signs of gas leaks include:
- Side effects such as dizziness, nausea, headaches, irritation or difficulty breathing.
- Hissing or whistling sounds coming from gas pipes.
- Plants or grass which has unexpectedly died.
- Physical damage to the gas meter or gas pipe.
- A weak pilot light flame.
- An uncharacteristically high spike in your gas bill.
- Your gas meter reading is higher than what your actual household gas usage should indicate.
Depending on the gas appliances you have, the signs could be different. Your gas heater could show a more visible spluttering pilot light than a gas hot water system or gas stove would. You are also more likely to notice a leak from your oven than the hot water heater, which might be tucked away at the back of the house.
We recommend you call an experienced plumber or gas fitter for annual gas appliance servicing to help uncover any potential problems. Plumber Near Me can easily keep you and your family safe with on-site gas leak detection and repairs.
What To Do If You Have A Gas Leak
If you have leaking gas in your home, take immediate action while you wait for gas leak repairs.
First, avoid igniting any flames or using electrical appliances; even a small spark can trigger an explosion. Open doors and windows to ventilate your home. A well-ventilated area reduces gas concentration. Don’t attempt to locate the leak yourself; gas is highly flammable and potentially lethal. Instead, promptly turn off the gas and evacuate all occupants from the property.
Once everyone is safe, contact Plumber Near Me to send an expert plumber gas fitter to your location. While you wait, stay clear of the property. Our team will arrive promptly to handle the situation and ensure your home is safe.
Repairing Gas Leaks
At Plumber Near Me, our expert gas fitters follow a structured and safety-focused approach to repairing gas leaks.
The process begins with a detailed gas plumbing system inspection, using cutting-edge tools to determine the source of the leak. Once we’ve established the source, we ensure immediate containment to minimise further leakage and potential risks.
As soon as we’ve established the leak and isolated it, we then get to repairing it safely and carefully. This might involve anything replacing damaged sections with high-quality parts, replacing a gas pipe if needed, or resealing as necessary. Post-repair, we conduct thorough testing to confirm that the system is secure and functioning optimally. We also provide valuable advice on preventive measures to help you avoid future gas leaks.
Don’t risk your safety by ignoring a suspected gas leak; call Plumber Near Me, your reliable partner in gas leak repairs. We are available 24/7, ensuring your peace of mind.
