Signs of a Gas Leak

  • Smell- Natural gas in odorless and clear, and it can sometimes be hard to determine whether or not you have a problem. For this reason, most gas providers will put additives into their gas to give it a smell. Typically, it will smell like rotten eggs or sulfur.
  • Dizziness- If you find that you start to get dizzy, lightheaded, or feel like you’re going to faint, this may be a sign that you have a gas leak. Left untreated, you could potentially pass out, never to wake up again.

Dangers of Natural Gas: 

Although your natural gas can do some amazing things, like cook your food and heat your business, there are some potential dangers associated with it. It is important to know about the dangers of natural gas so you do not put yourself, employees, or customers at risk.

  • Fire and Explosion- Natural gas is extremely flammable. Your business can literally blow up with a gas leak, and this is why it is so important to take care of any problems that you have immediately.
  • Carbon Monoxide Poisoning- When working properly, the only byproducts of gas are carbon dioxide and water vapor which are perfectly harmless. However, if you have stoves in your kitchen or a heating system that is not burning off everything this can lead to disaster. Breathing in carbon monoxide for any extended period of time can cause you to pass out, and can even kill you.

Do not take a gas leak lightly. If you notice a gas leak in your business you should immediately go outside and get some fresh air. After you are no longer at risk of passing out you should shut the gas supply off and open all of the doors and windows.
