It is not a big secret that gas leaks are incredibly dangerous. Gas leaks can lead to scary explosions, but even if an explosion doesn’t occur, you could asphyxiate by just being exposed to natural gas for too long. In a previous blog, we went over what to do if you experience a leak in your gas piping in Mokena. Although the experts at R.J. Graham Plumbing are able to offer fast and reliable repair for your gas piping, the very best way to deal with a gas leak is to prevent it from happening in the first place. That is why we came up with this list of tips to help you prevent a leak from occurring:

  • Check the connections on your gas heating equipment and appliances regularly. If you don’t feel comfortable with this task, feel free to call in one of our experts. You should check these connections at least twice a year. 
  • Don’t attempt to do any repairs, installations or upgrades on anything that is connected to a natural gas line on your own, instead you should always turn to a licensed plumber. They have the experience and the training that you need to get the job done safely and correctly.
  • Always be aware of gas lines before you excavate your property. You can call the Know Before You Dig hotline, 811, which will connect you to the resources that you need to locate the gas lines on your property.
