If you want to keep your home safe and in mint condition, you need to keep an eye out and notice when something isn’t working as usual. If you don’t, you risk putting your home, yourself, and your family, in danger. For example, if a gas leak were to occur in your house, you should be able to identify it effectively to prevent a fiery disaster from happening. Still, if you aren’t too sure of how you can determine if you have a gas leak at home, just follow this guide!

How to Correctly Identify a Gas Leak at Home

Take Note of Your Usage

The first clue that gas may be leaking out of your pipes, is that it runs out faster than it normally does (even if you use it as usual). This is why you need to pay attention to how often you refill your gas tank.

Sense the Leak

Next, you will need to use your senses in order to be certain that there’s a leak going on, and to more or less determine where it is located. To do this you’ll need to use:
  • Your nose to smell intently for that rotten odor that gas emits. Smell around the pipes, the tank, the stove and other appliances that use gas to find out if there’s a leak.
  • Your ears to listen closely for hissing sounds around the gas pipes. If you perceive said sound, it may be that gas is being pressured out of the pipes.
  • Your eyes to look for signs of a gas leak. For example, if you can see that the plants around the pipes are dead, or that a gust of wind is pushing them, you may have a leak.

Perform the Soap Test

Another great way to ensure if there’s a leak and to pinpoint its exact location, is to perform the soap test. You just need to mix water and soap until you have a sudsy result. Then, dip a sponge in it and run it through the pipes. If the soap starts bubbling, you’ve found your leak.

Contact a Professional Team

If you don’t feel up for the task, call a professional team so they can determine if you have a leak. It’s also a good idea to contact them if you’ve found a leak yourself, so they can deal with it as soon as possible.
