Carbon Monoxide Poisoning This is the number one natural gas safety issue. Carbon monoxide is dangerous because it is odorless, and robs the victim’s brain and organs of the oxygen necessary to function properly. The symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning are similar to those of the flu without a fever. Anyone experiencing these symptoms should get out of the house and call 911 immediately.
To Reduce the Risk of Carbon Monoxide Poisoning:
Install carbon monoxide detectors in key areas of your home
Inspect the vents, flues, and chimneys of all gas water heaters, furnaces, and fireplaces for proper ventilation of exhaust
Never heat the house with your oven
Never sleep in a room heated by a gas or kerosene space heater without proper venting
Gas Line Leaks Natural gas has a “rotten egg” odor added to gas to warn of a leak. Line leaks are rare, but can be extremely dangerous. A buildup of natural gas in an enclosed area can make people very sick or cause an explosion.
Gas leaks outside the home are also dangerous. Before doing any job that requires digging outside, homeowners should call their local utility company so gas lines can be marked before digging begins.
If You Smell the “Rotten Egg” Odor in Your Home:
Do not use your cell phone until safely away
Shut gas valves off at your home
Do not turn on or off any electrical appliances
Do not smoke or use any open flames
Do not attempt to locate the leak
Get a safe distance away from the house, and then call 911 and the utility company
If a natural gas line is damaged when digging outside, call the utility immediately. Do not attempt to repair the line
Gas leaks in the home can be easily prevented by ensuring that flexible gas lines are installed properly and inspected regularly by licensed professionals. Call Bear's Plumbing in Spring, TX today to schedule an annual inspection, installation or repair.
