While you should always call a plumber when it comes to water lines and drains in your home, some homeowners feel confident tackling these issues themselves with varying results. However, the same should never be done for repairing your gas lines. Not only is it illegal for an unlicensed person to work on gas lines in Bedford, Andover, or the surrounding areas, not knowing exactly what to do can lead to disastrous and deadly consequences. It might surprise you to know that our plumbers at Ostroski Heating and Plumbing can work on your gas lines, but that's because we're licensed, qualified, and prepared with experience to do the work.
If you ever smell gas inside of a building, the state of Massachusetts recommends the following:
- Evacuate as soon as possible
- Call your gas company or 911 once outside
- Do not interact with any electric lights or appliances to turn them on or off
- Do not open or close windows
- Do not try to shut off gas yourself
