What about a gas leak?
Having a gas leak is very dangerous in both residential area or commercial area. If you have a gas leak, the first thing you should do is to locate and turn off the gas at the mains. It’s usually close to the gas meter, so you should find it fairly quickly. Don’t panic or else it might end in failure. But if you are not confident in doing the job then leave the leak as it is and instead, make sure to avoid doing anything which might cause a spark such as turning a light on or off and open doors and windows to improve ventilation.
If you believe the leak is serious and you are in danger evacuate the building and make sure no one comes close to it. Finally, call the gas emergency service on 0800 111 999.
But if it turns out a minor leak, you can give MDS plumbers, the best plumbing and heating services company in the area a call and we’ll get one of our specialized engineers to you as soon as possible to assess the situation and undertake repairs.
