Not only the potential devastation to your premises from an explosion, your employees and customer’s lives are at risk. Gas line leaks should always be treated as serious, and who would you rather call? Your Plumber? Chicago Fire Department? It’s an easy choice…
- Should you get a whiff of a gas leak the first thing you should do is turn off any gas hobs and other naked flames, then switch off the supply at the meter. However, do not turn any electrical switches off or on.
- If the smell is not too strong, open windows and doors to allow the gas to escape. If it is strong, you may not have the time. If the smell is sudden and overpowering, you need to get out fast.
- You, your employees and any customers must leave the premises as quickly as possible: ideally in a calm, ordered fashion. Don’t panic people. Most importantly: insist that no-one uses their cell phone until they are out of the building. Even if the smell is ‘barely there’, simply avoid any form of spark or ignition. It’s better to be safe than sorry!
- Once everyone is outside – and only then– call the best emergency gas line repair plumber in Chicago – the one prepared to get there fast, any time of day and night.
