Many instances of gas line repairs are to fix an issue with a gas line that is leaking. Any circumstance when a gas line has sprung a leak should be considered an emergency situation and a local Chicago gas expert should be called immediately as well as the emergency services.

The doors to the building should be left open and an immediate call to the emergency services should be made once you’re outside of the property.
While some gas line leaks are obvious (through smell, sight, and hearing), it’s not always the case. You may not realize that your gas line has been damaged for a significant amount of time, in these situations, it pays to understand the symptoms of a gas leak.
A gas leak can often be identified by changes to the environment inside your property, and symptoms that will affect your health.

• Noticeable bubbles in water
• The death of plants around your home
• Evident damage to exposed gas pipes
• A rotten egg smell (sulfur)
• A cloud of dust near the gas line
• Higher than normal gas bills
• A whistling or hissing sound near the gas line
Alongside the changes to your home environment, you may also notice that you or your pets experience unusual physical symptoms, such as:
• Dizziness or a lightheaded feeling
• Throat and eye irritation
• Difficulty breathing
• Chest pains
• Skin blistering
• Lowered appetite
In all instances were a gas leak is suspected, it’s essential to leave the property and make the necessary calls – never put yourself or your family at risk by ignoring even the smallest sign that there may be a gas leak in your property.
Why Might You Need Your Gas Line Repaired?
There are a number of reasons why you may need your gas line to be repaired, some that can be prevented and others that occur overtime. For the most part, gas lines in Chicago are completely safe and act as a highly convenient way for easy gas access in your home or workplace.
Some of the main causes of a gas leak, include:
• Damage to the pipeline – physical damage to the gas line can result in gas leaks, or potential gas leaks in the future. A pipeline can be damaged physically in many ways, including due to the growth of tree roots and blunt force.
• Poor ventilation of appliances – it’s essential that carbon dioxide is able to escape an enclosed space with ease, with adequate ventilation around your appliances.
• Piping is in poor condition – piping that hasn’t been maintained or that is old, can lead to gas leaks. Faulty pipelines and eroded pipelines are common causes of gas leaks.
• Faulty appliances – just as the pipework under your home can degrade overtime, so can the pipes inside your appliances.
If your home has old gas lines, and your concerned about their condition, then it’s better to be safe and have them checked. This way, any repair work can be performed before the problem becomes serious and you’ll have a peace of mind over the condition of the pipes in your home.

Natural gas leaks can be incredibly dangerous, so always make sure that you:
1) Keep Your Home Ventilated – To prevent the build-up of natural gas around appliances like your fireplace and oven, it’s important to make sure that the area is properly ventilated. Make sure that all appliances responsible for burning gas are not obstructed and ensure that there is a healthy flow of air between the inside and outside of your home.
2) Correctly Store Flammable Materials – As gas is flammable, it’s important to make sure that any flammable chemicals that you store in your home are kept a good distance away from gas lines and any appliances that burn gas. It’s also advised to have a fire extinguisher in-house, so you can react quickly in the event of a fire.
3) Install Detectors for Carbon Monoxide – Carbon monoxide poisoning can occur when gas doesn’t burn properly and can cause many of the same symptoms that you’ll experience during a gas leak. Installing carbon monoxide detectors around your home, will alert you quickly to any cases where the level of carbon monoxide is too high – indicating a problem with your gas.
4) Maintain Your Gas Lines – The best way to protect your home from faulty gas pipes and problems with the gas in your home, is to make sure that your pipes are regularly inspected for signs of damage, wear and tear, and improper function. If you catch a problem early, then it could help to prevent a much more serious issue down the line!
