What to do During a Gas Leak
One of the most serious emergencies we encounter is a gas leak. Gas is a toxic fume that can cause serious harm when inhaled. If you suspect a gas leak in your home, there are several steps you should take while waiting for the experts at Tampa Bay Plumbing to arrive to ensure the safety of your family and pets. They include:
- Calling the gas company to inform them of the situation and have the gas turned off.
- Ensuring that your appliances are turned off.
- Opening the window to air out your home.
- Evacuating your family and pets from the home.
- Making sure your car is parked at a safe distance from your home.
A gas leak should always be treated as an emergency, since leaving it alone can cause serious harm to your family and can pose an incredible danger if the gas is ignited. That’s why you should never do anything inside the house that could cause a spark, and move everyone to safety right away.
