"I called my insurance company and they immediately contacted your company. Robert Ball stated he would arrive to my home within an hour. He did….amazing!!!. I cannot say enough about the professionalism of your technicians…I had the feeling that every thing was going to be okay. In the afternoon on Saturday, I had reason to call Robert Ball, as I was concerned with my circuit breaker was tripping with the increased load created by drying equipment. Robert answered his phone…no voicemail…once again, amazing!! "

“I was impressed with everyone who cleaned our house – very friendly and hard workers.” 
- Connie Thingstad
“We are writing this letter of reference for ProRestore DKI because of our appreciation and amazement of the service they showed us with their new way of cleaning product. Everything ProRestore DKI has cleaned came back to the store smelling fresh and free of stains and marks. I foresee us utilizing this service in the future when we come across some good, used sports equipment that really smells but has the quality to be resold. I recommend this cleaning service to anyone who has involvement with sport activities. From teams to single families, this service works.”

When you think about it, our houses can be very dangerous. We have to deal with fire, electricity, water, gas, among other things. This is why you need to be careful, pay close attention to any abnormality, and fix what needs fixing as soon as possible.

To help you out in this department, ProRestore DKI in Grimes, will give you a few tips on how you can detect a gas leak, so you can act on it and avoid an accident.

How to Detect a Gas Leak

Take Note

Even if the leak is small, you can still notice some signs that it’s there. Your first clue can be, for example, that your gas supply is running out faster than normal.

Use Your Senses

Smell: gas has a very strong and distinctive smell (of something rotten) that’s put in to alert you if there’s a leak.

Sight: go to the gas line and see if the plants around it are dying out or if seems like an air current is blowing them out.

Hearing: do you hear a hissing sound near the gas line? This can mean that gas is pressured out of the pipe.

Test it Out

If you want to make extra sure that there’s gas leaking out, and to pinpoint its exact location, you’ll need to do the soap test. Mix dishwashing soap and water and soak a sponge in it. Then, use the sponge to rub the pipe down. If you see bubbles forming, there’s your leak!

Call a Professional

If you still aren’t sure of where (or if) the leak is happening, or if you want someone to expertly handle the situation, you need to call a professional (or even your gas supplier).
