The easiest way to detect a gas leak is with your nose. Natural gas has a strong, distinct odor, which is often compared to sulfur or rotten eggs. This is a not a foolproof method, however, as certain chemical processes can cause the odor to fade over time. Or, depending on the location of the leak, other smells may be masking the gas odor. In these situations, try using your ears instead to identify any unusual hissing or whistling noises. Obviously the best practice if you suspect a gas leak is to call in a plumbing professional like those at Webster Plumbing & Gas.
