We also offer gas line repair in addition to our other commercial plumbing services.
Natural Gas Appliances
Many commercial buildings in our area are powered by natural gas. Not only is natural gas cost effective, but it produces less carbon dioxide emissions when burned. Natural gas can be used to power washer, dryers, water heaters, stoves, and other major appliances.

Natural Gas Leaks
Your utility company adds a foul odor to natural gas so you're able to detect a leak as soon as possible. If you smell sulfur or rotten eggs, open all the windows in your building to help the gas dissipate. You'll also need to shut off the gas at the meter. If you aren't sure where your gas meter is, call your utility company ASAP.
What to do for a:
- Don't turn on electrical switches (including light switches)
- Don't create flames
- Open windows and exterior doors
- Turn gas off at meter
- Call 911 and an emergency plumber
- Evacuate if necessary
- Warn neighbors if necessary
- Wait to be given the all clear before re-entering building
If the bad smell is coming from a basement with no windows, open as many windows as you can upstairs and have everyone evacuate the building.
Hire a licensed plumber for gas line installation and repair so you can prevent a potentially deadly natural gas leak. We never advise property owners to handle gas line repairs themselves, lest they start a natural gas leak.
Risk of Illness or Death
Most natural gas leaks are detected because the utility company adds a foul odor. However, prolonged exposure to natural gas can cause dizziness, nausea, fatigue, unconsciousness, and even death. Leave the gas leak repair to our plumbing contractors. We have worked with countless property owners to keep commercial buildings safe.
Risk of Fire or Explosion
The longer natural gas is allowed to leak inside your commercial building, the higher the risk for a fire or explosion. As a commercial building owner, it's your responsibility to keep up on maintenance so issues with natural gas lines are caught and resolved. If you smell natural gas, don't use any electrical switches or create a flame. Natural gas is highly combustible.
