Gas Line Repairs & Replacement

Denver Gas Line Repairs & Replacements When You Need It Most!

Did you know natural gas doesn’t naturally smell like rotten eggs? The natural gas used in homes and businesses is odorless and colorless. Gas companies add mercaptan gas to natural gas so that people can smell it when it’s in places it shouldn’t be, like inside our homes.

Ironically, mercaptan gas is only one of many byproducts created from ancient plants and animals that have decayed over millions of years. Around half of us make mercaptan gas when we eat asparagus, much to the discomfort of those around us. Natural gas producers put mercaptan gas into natural gas so we can intervene quickly when there is a gas leak.

Gas Line Services

Mercaptan gas makes natural gas leak detection possible. Without it, people can quickly die from natural gas poisoning. But poisoning is not the only danger. Natural gas is highly flammable. Massive explosions become a genuine possibility when it collects in places where it can’t be vented.

According to the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), about 4,200 homes are damaged or destroyed yearly because of natural gas leaks, leading to an average of 17 deaths. The safety concerns put natural gas leak repair among the most important things you can do for your home and business.

Signs You Might Need
Gas Line Replacement

On rare occasions, you might need new gas lines. For example, you’re doing a home makeover and accidentally damage your gas lines. In these cases, you’ll need expert gas line installation using modern materials and tools. Without these things, you’re taking chances that could be dangerous. If you need gas line installation, the Gas line contractors at Squeakies should be your first call.

Mercaptan gas isn’t the only sign of a gas leak. If you notice any of the following conditions, call today.

  • An increase in your gas bills – If it’s a small leak, it might take a while to notice it on your gas bill. Regularly check your natural gas usage for discrepancies like higher usage as a preventative measure.
  • Dead or wilting houseplants – Houseplants can and do die inside enclosed places, even without a gas leak. However, a dead houseplant close to the natural gas leak is a good indicator.
  • A faint hissing sound – Leaks can come from anywhere gas lines are in your home or business. So, finding the source of the hissing can be difficult.
  • Cloudy air near the gas lines – This is rare because too much gas mixing with breathable air can blow up if something sparks and ignites the gas cloud.
  • Gas line damage – Gas lines are necessary for bringing hot water and cooking into a home or business. Any damage, large and small, can cause leaks.

A: Detecting a gas leak underground is much like detecting a gas leak above ground: it starts by monitoring the area for the distinctive smell of sulfur or rotten eggs, listening for a hissing or whistling sound and looking for water that is bubbling, plant life that is discolored or dead, or dust clouds in the air.
