Why Are Gas Leaks So Dangerous?
When you have a gas leak, you are allowing a powerful greenhouse gas known as methane to come out of your gas lines. It is extremely flammable and combustible, which increases the chance of accidentally lighting your home on fire. In addition, gas leaks like this are major contributors to global warning. They can also cause health effects like dizziness, nausea, or vision problems.
Gas leaks can be extremely hard to detect, especially if they are small. This is because methane is a colorless, odorless gas. That is why gas companies often add a harmless chemical called mercaptan to your gas. That way, if there is a gas leak large enough, you will smell sulfur or rotten eggs from the mercaptan. Below are a few other signs you have a gas leak:
- you smell sulfur or rotten eggs
- you see a damaged part of the gas line
- your plants are dying for no specific reason
- you hear hissing near the gas lines
- home inhabitants are feeling dizzy, tired, nauseous, or experiencing vision problems for no specific reason
If you have reason to believe you have a major gas leak, it is important to exit your home as soon as possible. In addition, make sure not to:
- turn on and off the lights
- use appliances
- use sources of ignition
- make phone calls
- try to repair the leak yourself

Could not have had a better experience with Texas Green Plumbing. Eli and Terry came out to look at an issue we were having with a sink/faucet. Literally the nicest people and we will definitely be requesting them specifically from now on. We have never had a negative experience with this company and would recommend them to anyone.Mary B.
Amber was amazing and helpful setting me up, the Techs (Kyle & Josh) were very professional, and importantly the fees cost/labor were much more reasonable compared to others I have spoken to.
Highly recommend!Dau N.
Awesome response time. I called them one morning due to a backed up shower drain causing that occurred the day we were scheduled to leave on vacation and they were able to get someone available within hours so we didn’t have to cancel our plans.Tyler F.
This is a great company to use. They worked around my schedule as I work from home. The plumber communicated with us what he did and he was super professional. Unfortunately I did not get his name, but he was awesome. Also, a shoutout to Amber at the office. She is so kind. She called me letting me know when they were coming and answered my questions when I called in.Lynnea B.
Aaron and Michael did a fantastic job and were very professional! The team did a bang up job explaining the process and why the solution they recommended was the best choice. They were efficient and worked diligently to get the job done and minimize water being turned off to the house. Thank you!Ken H.
I had 2 sinks with drainage problems in my new home. Upstairs bathroom sink just needed the seal reset. The kitchen sink had several leaks and they gave me several options for repairs at each point. They also figured out the drainage problem as being a grease clog. I have several fans set up to help deal with the smell, but now the sink drains and there are no more leaks!Patrick T.
We have used Texas Green Plumbing in the past to fix our hot water heaters and they were fantastic. The entire process took less than 15 minutes. He saved me so much time and money!Kala E.
I went on YouTube to see if I can get an understanding of why there could be water in my outside meter box and found a video by Mr. Roger. The City said it was my responsibility so I decided to call TGP the next day. Amber and Aaron were polite and professional. The leak was fixed just in time before all the rain we received this week. The cost seemed reasonable. Thank you so much.Yvonne A.
