Shreveport & Bossier City Gas Leak Detection

24/7 Emergency Services to Keep You & Your Property Safe

Because many properties are looking for ways to increase energy efficiency and cut down on utility costs, more and more they are relying on natural gas to power appliances. However, any time a gas line has a leak, it is considered a plumbing emergency due to the severe threats it can pose to your health and your property. Inhaling the fumes released during a gas leak could make you extremely sick, and it may even result in death if not dealt with right away. Additionally, the build up of natural gas in an enclosed space could also lead to a disastrous explosion.

At Bobby L. Greene Plumbing & Heating Co., we understand the severity of such emergencies, which is why we are available 24/7 for gas leak detection in Shreveport. Since 1959, our family-owned business has viewed all of our customers as members of our family, which is why we make it a point to ensure their safety. Regardless of the job at hand, you can take solace knowing that we get it done right—no matter the size or scope.

Common Signs of Gas Leaks

A foul, rotten egg stench is the most common way to tell you have a gas leak – while natural gas doesn't have a natural smell, mercaptan, a sulfur-based substance, is added in to add this odor. However, waiting around until you can smell gas isn’t advisable. Here are a few early warning signs that you may have a gas leak:

  • There is dying vegetation in your yard
  • There is water or dirt in the air near the gas supply
  • You hear hissing or roaring sounds coming from your pipes
  • You notice the connections to your gas-powered appliances are damaged
  • There is excessive condensation on your windows
  • You or someone else who lives, works in, or visits your property is experiencing unexplained health issues such as headaches, nausea, dizziness, fatigue, and/or fainting

What to Do If You Suspect You Have a Gas Leak

If you are currently experiencing any of the above signs, it’s important that you do not panic. Instead, try to open as many windows as possible to vent your property and allow the gas the space to dissipate. For your safety, and that of your property, it’s important that you don’t turn on any electronics, ignite a flame, or flip on any light switches, and carefully evacuate to a safe distance away from your property. It’s important that you don’t even turn on your car’s engine because the combustion can lead to an explosion. Once everyone is safely outside, first call 911 and then the gas company to report the leak. Once the area has been deemed safe, call our experienced gas leak detection plumbers in Shreveport.

How Is Gas Leak Detection Performed?

It used to be that plumbers would have to perform heavy excavation work in order to be able to achieve visible access to your gas lines and determine whether there was a leak and the exact location of it. This is a costly and extensive process that has since become outdated. Now, our plumbers use state-of-the-art gas leak detection monitors that don’t require any invasive excavation.

A broken gas line can put you and your property at risk. Call our team at (318) 771-7551 the first moment you suspect you have a leak.
