Dependable Gas Leak Repairs in Glasgow
Do you think you can smell gas? If you think that you have a gas leak, you must act immediately - gas leaks can be extremely dangerous. The first thing to do is to turn off the gas supply.

Can You Smell Gas in Your Home?
If you suspect that there’s leaking gas inside your home, don’t ignore it. It’s ok if you’re not sure – we can check things for you and put your mind at rest if it turns out to be nothing. Of course, if there is a gas leak, we will then carry out the repairs needed to make it safe, doing so as quickly as possible.
It’s important not to light a match or turn on the gas hob until you have it all clear, just in case there is gas escaping. Gas can leak from the meter, the gas hob, oven, boiler or a gas fire. Especially when appliances are getting older, weakness can occur in joints and the controls. Having an annual service on your boiler and all of your gas appliances will help prevent gas leaks, making sure that your appliances are in proper working condition. If there are any issues, repairs and installations of new systems can be arranged.
What Does a Gas Leak Smell Like?
Gas is naturally odourless, but an artificial smell is added so users are aware of it. A chemical is added called mercaptan that smells a bit like rotten eggs. Leaking gas in the home can make you feel unwell.
You can have fatigue, dizzy spells, headaches, and nausea but these symptoms usually ease when you leave the house and the leaking gas. If you are experiencing these symptoms you could have a gas leak in your home - meaning you should call an engineer immediately.
