Older homes can have a lot of issues. Inadequate wiring, poor air flow, and old pipes can all pose problems. If your home was built more than 30 years ago, it’s most likely that it contains galvanized or black iron gas pipes. Over time, these pipes will corrode, and the flow of gas will be obstructed. This can lead to more serious problems, such as leaks and cracks in your gas pipes. A gas leak is a very serious matter, so if you’ve smelled natural gas or noticed dead patches of grass on your lawn, it might be time for gas repiping in Orange County.
The first thing you should do when you notice or smell a gas leak is to evacuate the immediate area and call your gas company. Never turn on the lights or anything else that could produce flame or a spark. You can never be sure how much gas has leaked out and even the tiniest spark could cause serious damage. Once your gas company has taken care of the leak, call us at California Repipe Specialist and we’ll get to work on repiping your home, so you won’t have to worry about future leaks.
