What Causes Gas Leaks?

Gas leaks can be caused by a variety of factors, including:

  • Corrosion: Over time, gas pipes can corrode due to exposure to moisture and other elements. This corrosion can weaken the pipes and lead to leaks.
  • Damage: Physical damage to gas lines, such as from digging or construction work, can cause cracks or breaks in the pipes that result in leaks.
  • Poor installation: Improper installation of gas lines can also lead to leaks. It’s important to have gas lines installed by trained professionals to ensure they are correctly fitted and sealed.
  • Wear and tear: Gas lines can deteriorate with age and regular use, like any plumbing system. As seals degrade or connections loosen, gas leaks can occur.
  • Natural disasters: Wildfires, floods, earthquakes,  or other natural disasters could damage gas lines and lead to leaks.

If you suspect a gas leak in your home or business, it’s crucial that you contact us immediately for gas line repair in Southwest LA for assistance in locating and repairing the issue before it poses a safety hazard.

Signs of a Gas Leak

Some typical signs of a gas leak include:


  • A strong sulfur or rotten egg odor: Gas companies add a smell to natural gas since it is odorless to help them realize they have a gas leak. So, if you notice a strong sulfur smell or rotten egg smell in your home, it could indicate a gas leak.
  • Hissing sound: A hissing or whistling noise near the gas line can also indicate a leak.
  • Dead plants or vegetation: If plants, shrubs, or grass near the gas lines suddenly die without any apparent reason, it could signal an underground gas leak affecting their roots.
  • Feeling sick: Inhaling natural gas can cause dizziness, fatigue, headaches, nausea, and shortness of breath.
  • Higher-than-usual gas bills: An unexplained increase in your gas bill without a corresponding change in usage could indicate a slow leak somewhere in the system.

What Should I Do if I Have a Gas Leak?

If you suspect a gas leak in your home or business, it is crucial to act quickly and take the necessary precautions to ensure safety as follows:

  • If you smell gas or suspect a leak, evacuate all occupants from the building immediately. Do not turn any lights or electronics on or off that could create sparks.
  • If it’s safe, shut off your home’s main gas supply valve at your meter outside using a wrench.
  • Open windows and doors to allow fresh air into the house and help dissipate any gas fumes.
  • Do not light matches, candles, cigarettes, or other flame sources, as they can ignite the gas.
  • Contact Drain City Plumbing for emergency service right away. We will dispatch our professionals immediately to assess the situation.
  • Once we confirm a gas leak, we will make the necessary pipe repairs to fix the gas leak.
