A gas leak can be a scary occurrence since, if it's not dealt with promptly and appropriately, it can lead to a fiery disaster or carbon monoxide poisoning. For tips on how to identify a gas leak at home if you suspect you may have one, continue reading the post below.

How to Identify a Gas Leak at Home

Keep Track of Your Gas Usage

First of all, you need to be aware of how often you refill your gas tank to know if it's running out faster than it's normal. Just make sure to take into account any increase in your own usage.

Use Your Senses

You can use your senses to detect a gas leak in your home. To that end:
  1. Use your sense of smell to identify the rotten egg scent of a gas leak.
  2. You can use your eyes to notice if there's any gust of wind pushing dust or plants away from the gas pipe.
  3. Lastly, use your ears to listen around the gas pipe and hear the sound of air being pressured out of it.

Do the Soap and Water Test

Lastly, the most effective way to tell if there is a gas leak in your house is to do the soap and water test. Simply mix water and soap to create a sudsy result. Dip a sponge in it and pass the sponge along the gas pipe. If bubbles start forming at some point, there's your leak.
