As soon as you detect a gas leak in your home, immediately leave the area. If there are other occupants in the building, inform them about the leak and ask everyone to evacuate the premises until the leak is found and dealt with. Call your gas utility company or professional gas plumbers so they can come and fix the problem.
Don’t try to Locate the Source:
Do NOT try to locate the source of the leak on your own. A careless action while looking for the origin of a gas leak may lead to disastrous consequences. An accidental spark can ignite the leaked gas and cause the building to go up in flames.
Don’t use any Electrical or Electronic Devices:
Don’t turn any electrical devices like kitchen appliances on or off. Even a tiny spark generated in the switch can trigger an explosion and a fire. It is also advisable not to use your cell phone near the leakage. Though there is little chance that it can cause a spark, it is better to be safe than sorry. Get away from the area where the leak has occurred and then call the professionals for help.
Open all doors and windows of the house so that the leaked gas may escape and be replaced by fresh air. Though this is by no means a solution to the problem, it will lessen the chances of the leaked gas catching fire.
Don’t Start Any Vehicles:
If the leak is outside the house or near the garage, it is a good idea to not start any vehicle. The spark from the engine’s ignition might ignite the leaked gas as well. Again, although there is very little chance of this happening, it is better to err on the side of caution.
