Chicagoland Gas Line Repair: What You Should Know
Gas lines, like water lines or sewer lines, can wear over time. Corrosion, cracking, age—these factors and more slowly break down a gas line and can bring it to the point of no return. And unlike water or sewage, it can pose a more dire threat to a home or business if it breaks down.

What To Do In The Event Of A Gas Leak
It’s not something many people want to think about, but it does happen. Here’s some advice on what to do:
You may notice a rotten egg smell. If it’s not coming from the fridge, the trash, or any other identifiable and/or related source, chances are you could have a gas leak.
If this is the case, shut off the gas valves at your home.
Do not use your phone or any other electrical appliances, as the charge in the air could, in some cases, spark the gas.
Absolutely do not use anything with an open flame. If there is something with an open flame in your house, extinguish it immediately.
Do not attempt to locate the leak.
Get everyone out of your house.
Make sure to get a safe distance away from your house. Call 911 and your local utility company.
