If you’re like most people, your gas lines may be a mystery to you. If they are working as expected and not putting you or your family in danger, you don’t have a compelling reason to find out more. However, once you suspect a problem with your gas line, it may be hard to get any sleep, as you wonder if your family is safe. At bluefrog Plumbing + Drain of Richmond, VA, our gas leak and detection repair services can get you the answers you need, so you can sleep peacefully again.
Gas leaks, like most plumbing issues, don’t come at convenient times. Unrepaired lines pose a danger that can lead to serious consequences. Our certified and insured plumbers have the experience it takes to find the source of the leak and resolve the issue. Your safety should always come first, and with us, it does.
If you smell gas inside your home, turn off all the burners. Call 911 and leave the property to ensure your safety. Walk across the street and away from the building until help arrives. If you suspect a leak, call us for gas leak detection and repair.
Once the repairs are complete, call the gas company to turn the gas back on rather than doing it yourself. An abundance of caution can mean the difference between a minor inconvenience and losing your home — or worse.
Hidden gas leaks are hard to detect. You don’t see or hear them. However, our gas repair pros can detect both small and large leaks, thanks to special training and equipment designed for the purpose.
With our state-of-the-art technology and attention to detail, we can find the leak and repair it correctly. This isn’t something you want an amateur to deal with. When it comes to gas leak and detection repair, trust your local experts.
Natural gas comes from far below the surface of the ground. Gas companies dig wells and pump the gas. Gas mains distribute it to urban areas, and your local utility runs smaller lines to your home.
A gas meter reports your usage to the utility company so you can be charged accordingly. From the gas meter, gas lines run to ovens, water heaters, furnaces and dryers powered by gas. The gas flows to areas of lower pressure, which is what makes the whole system work. There are several shut-off points that serve as safety precautions. This allows trained technicians to turn off gas in certain sections without affecting the whole system.
In other areas, people may use gas powered by propane tanks for certain appliances. There is less chance of a major leak, but leaks can still occur inside the home. If you aren’t sure how your system works but suspect a problem, give us a call as soon as possible.
Gas poses a very real danger if mishandled. In fact, natural gas has no smell and additives are mixed in with it so it’s easier to detect. Exposure to natural gas may lead to severe health problems. Besides that, it’s highly flammable and can catch fire if exposed to a flame. Gas leaks also hike up the rates on your utility bill. Call us to find and fix the leak as soon as possible.
The cost of a gas leak repair varies, depending on the location of the leak, how bad the leak is and what part of the gas line is compromised. Contact bluefrog Plumbing + Drain to schedule an evaluation. Our technicians understand the urgency of a gas leak and treat your concerns with the respect they deserve.

I had Patrick with Blue Frog Plumbing out to my house today and he was wonderful. I had a problem with low water pressure and two other plumbing companies could not figure it out. Patrick has 30 years of experience and was able to fix our problem. Blue Frog has my business from now on. Thank you.
Patrick was friendly and professional! Montana dispatched him promptly when I called, and Patrick took care of my plumbing issue quickly! I really appreciate the efficiency and quality work. Thanks bluefrog Plumbing + Drain!
Patrick was wonderful! I had him come address a few issues, including my master bathroom shower water pressure. The water pressure has been so low for years that I had been using the guest bathroom. After Patrick finished his repairs, my master shower had better water pressure than before! I finally have my master bathroom back! Thank you!
